EventLive is not only a Facebook Live alternative, it's an improvement.

The one key difference between these two live video services is how they were conceived. EventLive has a private and secure platform. This means that guests can watch a private event without creating an account or even downloading an app.
Facebook Live, on the other hand, is not private and the live stream is seen publicly on the broadcaster's feed. If you try to make it private, guests will need an account to watch.

Facebook is a free service, if you don't mind them using and selling your data to target you with ads. EventLive charges users for live streaming a private event with much better features, improved viewers' experience, and, most important of all, real privacy away from social media.

When you're inviting mostly tech-savvy people who are already using Facebook, then the free features might work for you. Are you looking to provide an excellent experience for your guests? Consider offering one-click access, better video quality, replay and guest reminders. EventLive offers all that and more for such a very affordable price tag.
