LiveTube – Watch news LIVE when it happens

LiveTube is the world’s first truly dedicated live video news streaming service. In a time of fake news, LiveTube aims to become the trusted source for live content. We enable everyone with a smartphone to become a citizen reporter and offer companies a unique tool to curate their internal and external live content. LiveTube’s team of professional journalists operates from the world’s first cloud-based newsroom exclusively developed to curate, produce and distribute live content received from mobile phones around the globe.

The world's most powerful LIVE platform

LiveTube turns 3.5 billion people into live cameramen

Smartphones (connected phones with cameras) have triggered a dramatic change in the way how news is reported. Mobile videos from people on the scene have provided some of the biggest stories of the past months.

However, the market does not have trusted providers for these critical moments when it comes to live video.

LiveTube is the world’s first app connecting 3.5 billion smartphone users with a newsroom for their live videos. Over 1000 professional journalists choose your live video, monitor, and distribute the content in real-time. And of course, everyone gets paid for their stories!

Our journalistic principles

Safety First

Safety first | We take the safety of all LiveTubers seriously. If in doubt, we ask them to stop filming, to get to a safe place, and if needed to help others first. See dedicated Guidelines for LiveTubers.


LiveTube is about showing the world what’s going on. We describe pictures and what is happening but we don’t comment or express opinions. We add additional comments or information only when we receive it from trusted sources and after our own additional internal checks. For this reason, LiveTube comes without any chat or commenting functions for the audience in order to control the messaging and to prevent any fake news, hate, or racist content. All descriptions come from the LiveTube newsroom team.

No Fake News

We check every piece of content before we start a live broadcast and monitor the content until it is finished. We even delay our live streams by 30 seconds so that our producers can intervene whenever needed.

Strict Rules

All LiveTube content needs to follow the strict LiveTube Rules. Every user must register and verify both email-address and their mobile number. In order to GO LIVE as a reporter, users have to provide their real-time location data.


We decline many more stories than we broadcast. To ensure the highest standard of quality all of our producers are professional journalists.


Good content is valuable. At LiveTube we pay our reporters for their live filming.
