This interview with two of the cofounders of Livestream has a lot of the same feeling as your grandfather grilling you about how YouTube works, but it’s still a chance to hear directly from two of the leaders of one of the biggest companies to relocate to Brooklyn recently.

Yesterday we profiled the work being done at the company’s new, East Williamsburg headquarters.

Livestream co-founders Max Haot and Phil Worthington field a series of simplistic questions about their business on Bloomberg TV, but they get a chance to make the case for democratizing broadcasting by way of the Internet.

A few takeaways from the six-minute interview:

  • Livestream has 10,000 paying customers. Haot and Worthington didn’t say anything about how many more free customers they have.
  • “It’s a lot of hyper-niche content,” Worthington said, describing content trends they are seeing.
  • Yale University uses Livestream.
  • It costs $49 per month for a paying customer to get an unlimited archive and no viewer login. The company has higher-level memberships, too, including white labeling.
