YouTube has expanded its Live streaming functionality even further, to take on services like Ustream.TV (which is about to get a big PlayStation boost) and Livestream.com. Moving past partners and selected gamers, YouTube says the Live service will be coming to users with over one thousand subscribers.
Announced in 2011, YouTube's Live streaming feature has been used to broadcast sport events, game tournaments, political events, and even concerts to the masses. However, you needed a special agreement with YouTube or be selected in the partner program to have access to the feature. With the "one thousand plus subscriber" category now added, live streaming on YouTube should get a big boost.
