Live Streaming

Those wishing to live-stream via platforms such as Facebook and YouTube should be covered by the existing licensing agreements in place with those platforms. There are currently no licensing arrangements in place with Twitter or Twitch, negotiations are currently taking place with both of these companies. Please ensure you follow the terms of use and copyright requirements of each respective platform.

Those wishing to host a live-stream via their own website can apply for a limited online music licence (LOML).

Music Streaming Licence (MSL)

We no longer offer a specific online streaming licence for UK services whose annual revenue is more than £200,000, except on a limited, case-by-case basis. 

Any services with annual revenues of less than £200,000 can still be licensed through the LOML and LOML+ licensing schemes. 

Contact our online licensing team

If you'd like to discuss live streaming or the possibility of a Music Streaming Licence, please email us at or call our licensing team on +44 (0)20 3741 3888, 9am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Multi-territory licensing 

If your service is operating in the UK and additional territories, you'll need a multi-territory licence. To find out more, please see our page about online multi-territory licensing.
