How long will videos be available on MS Stream?  Is there a retention policy/max time before they are purged?

@emruther in Microsoft Stream there are currently no retention policies or expiration of content.  Content deletions occur by Stream admins or end users.  

@Daniel Escapa does this still apply if there are no active Microsoft licenses or subscriptions? So if the video files aren't deleted they are kept indefinitely?

At Ignite 2020, Microsoft has announced that this will be available soon. For more info, check out these two videos: https://youtu.be/occ-qFcP83s and https://youtu.be/8iol0KfCeL8
