If you're broadcasting, you probably want people to watch. And if you want people to watch, you have to tell them when you're going to go live. Creating an event is a great way to do this. It lets you communicate your programming with not only your followers and fans, but with people who may randomly stumble across your channel.

Being able to tell the world when you're broadcasting by creating an event allows a one-click RSVP to the event, sending them an alert 60 minutes before the event goes live. Letting people know and alerting them before you go live has the potential to increase viewership and the broadcast's success rate. Additionally, you can share your event with the Ustream content team at The content team may choose to schedule it into Ustream's "Upcoming" page or place the event on the home page or one of the four main sub pages for further exposure.
