Do you love live streaming sports matches on your channel? Do you want to make your live stream more engaging for your viewers? If you do, then you need a scoreboard. A scoreboard overlay is a vital element of any sports live streaming session. It shows the viewers important information about the match, such as the score, the time, and the progress of the game. Without a scoreboard, your viewers might get confused or bored and leave your live stream.
But how can you add a scoreboard to your live stream? Most streaming platforms, such as YouTube, Facebook, etc., do not have a scoreboard feature. You might think that you need to use expensive software or complicated equipment to create a scoreboard. But that is not true. There is a simple and free way to add a scoreboard overlay to your live streaming session. And that is Live Now’s Scoreboard feature.
Scoreboard overlay for sports live streaming – Free on Live Now
Scoreboard overlay has many benefits for your sport live streaming session.
Scoreboard has a variety of templates for different sports. You can choose a template that suits your sport, such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and more. Each template has a unique design and layout that matches the sport. Live Now understands that each sport has its characteristics and rules. That is why Live Now constantly develops new scoreboard templates to meet your specific needs.
For an exciting live match experience, many of our scoreboard templates have stopwatch function. This function allows you to recreate the tension of a live match by displaying the elapsed time. Easily configure time settings in the app to match the duration of the sporting event, whether it’s a soccer match, a basketball match, or any other thrilling sport.
Scoreboard lets you customize the information on the scoreboard, such as the team names, the number of rounds, and the time settings. You can change the information according to your preferences and the requirements of the sport. Customizing information gives you flexibility and suitability for each sport you want to live stream.
Get creative with other features on Live Now
But Scoreboard overlay is not the only feature you can use on Live Now. You can also use other features in the Custom Overlay section to spice up your live stream. With the GIF function, you can add gifs from GIPHY to your live stream, helping you cheer for your team or celebrate goals.
If the gifs available on GIPHY don’t satisfy you, you can add videos or gifs from other places to the live stream using the URL feature.
