    X to Restrict Live Streaming to Paid Subscribers

    “Exclusive live streams on the horizon for X”

    In a move that will change how users interact with the popular platform, sources indicate that X may soon limit the ability to go live to only those with a paid subscription. While full details and timing are still emerging, the company responsible for the service has confirmed premium members will be the only ones capable of broadcasting live video streams.

    This upcoming change would make X unique among major social networks, as competitors generally allow all users to engage in real-time streaming free of charge. A spokesperson for the live experience verified the shift, noting premium subscribers will have sole access to livestream via both the app itself and integrated third-party encoders.

    Those hoping to continue going live were directed to upgrade their account, though no definitive date was provided for enforcing the paid requirement. It remains unclear if already captured streams will be affected or just new broadcasts. The policy would represent the latest in a string of features restricted to premium tiers, following past moves like private likes and expanded posting abilities.

    As the service continues adding perks for fee-based members, it indicates a broader strategy of monetizing basic functions. Only time will tell how users and creators adapt to the changing livestreaming terms. For now, all eyes are on when X flips the switch to make live video an exclusive premium perk.
