How to create a Live Pay-Per-View event
Prior to creating an event on the Cleeng platform, you first need to make sure you registered with one of the OVPs that allows for the live streaming of events (Brightcove Kaltura, Livestream, Ooyala or a similarly acceptable one). After that, you will have to register an account with Cleeng and create your first event pre-booking page (we call it 'Creating an event').
