Our Simulated Live feature allows you to rebroadcast a past or uploaded broadcast. The main thing to remember is uploads are archived, so they can only be uploaded for a past date/time. Once uploaded, you can follow the step-by-step instructions below to schedule a Simulated Live stream using an upload as a source file.

Note: Simulated Live is not available with all plans. If you'd like to add it to your plan, please contact your client manager at cm@boxcast.com.

Common Questions

Does it rebroadcast the original recording or the trimmed/replaced version?

It'll use the trimmed or replaced version of your broadcast.

Can I stream to Facebook or YouTube with Simulated Live?

Yep! You can broadcast to all the same places as any live BoxCast broadcast.

Can I schedule a Simulated Live broadcast for a future broadcast?

Yes.

Can I schedule a recurring Simulated Live broadcast?

Yes, but it'll broadcast the same content every time. So you can rebroadcast the same archive over and over again, but you can't set up a Simulated Live event to dynamically change the source each week.

Can I schedule a rebroadcast of my broadcast immediately after it ends?

Yes, but we recommend that you leave a 5–10 minute buffer between to ensure the recording is saved in time to be replayed. For example, we'd recommend you schedule a rebroadcast of your 9–10 a.m. broadcast for 10:05–11:05 a.m. at the earliest. If you schedule back to back, you risk it not going live on time.

If my source broadcast has captions, will those appear on the rebroadcast?

Yes.
