The internet is changing the nature of visual entertainment. We already have YouTube and Netflix offering on-demand content, and even shows such as @SummerBreak integrating social media as a medium for additional storytelling. Platforms such as Twitch are now showing that there’s real demand for live streams on the web, and Sweden’s Liveguide is an app that acts as a comprehensive schedule listing for livestreamed content across the web.
As is the nature of live broadcasts, tuning in at the right time is needed to enjoy the action happening in real time, whether it’s video gameplay, sports or interactive Q&As. Developed by students from digital business school Hyper Island, Liveguide presents live content from platforms like Twitch, Ustream, Youtube Live and Dailymotion as channels. Live and upcoming shows can be filtered through a variety of categories and tags, and once users have found a broadcast they want to watch they can push it to their TV via Airstream, or receive a notification when it starts.

Available for free on the App Store, Liveguide could ensure that users don’t miss coverage of live events by letting them know what’s on, and when.
