Hi We currently have a local UHF transmission (not freeview) and I would like to help them stream via Ustream, livestream? 
Any suggestions. It is run by a non-profit/voluntary group.

Thanks for the help. Apologies for my lack of knowledge...

Viewcast have a range of products, e.g., http://viewcast.com/products/niagara-systems/niagara-9100. HD-SDI in so would look better than what they broadcast over the air.

You'll need to ensure you have a stable internet connection with at least 5Mbps+ upload bandwidth.

I don't think U-Stream / LiveStream will allow a full 24/7 streaming TV channel unless you are paying for a premium plan. If you have the technical knowledge, it's probably worth getting a VPS (Virtual Private Server, can cost as low as $3-4 per month if purchased in the USA) and using a computer with VLC and streaming it through that. As it's been pointed out however, you'll need pretty good upload to support that sort of stream - VDSL speeds or higher.

Then you'd be paying for the bandwidth off the VPS which would be greatly more than the uplink bandwidth.

thanks for the replies. Sounds like I should just upload specific programmes and ditch the livestream altogether unless its a special event?
