Is Sport Scope Live really FREE for my school?
Sport Scope Live is a free platform for you to live stream your games to. All you need is an iPad/iPhone and our free Sport Scope Live app. You can then live stream your games with the push of a button from the Sport Scope Live app to your fan page where your fans will be able to purchase virtual tickets to watch your live streams and can also donate to your school.
What equipment do I need to live stream?
We recommend a tripod and an iPad/iPhone tripod mount to stabilize your camera. Quality tripods can be found for $50-$80 and quality mounts cost as little as $30. For stadium sports like football, we recommend a 2x lens ($30) to get crisp video from far away. That’s it, nothing else is needed to get high quality streams for your fans.
What software do I need?
You only need to have the newest Sport Scope Live App downloaded on your iPad that you plan on live streaming from. The app will automatically sync your live stream to your fan page on sportscopelive.com .
Where can I live stream to?
You can only stream to sportscopelive.com with the Sport Scope Live App. Our platform allows you to charge your fans per game just like in person to create a new revenue stream.
How do I charge fans to view?
When you schedule your events, you can pick your ticket price for each event and sport. The minimum ticket price is $5 and there is no maximum. We will then deduct expenses and split the profit 50/50 with your team.
How is virtual ticket revenue split?
We collect the ticket revenue into a dedicated payment account for your team. Then we deduct all live streaming and processing fees and split the profit 50/50 with you. Our average team receives about 43% of the gross ticket price vs. 7.5% from our main competitor.
How do donations work on Sport Scope Live?
When you opt-in to donations three things will happen.
  1. You will have a donate button on your fan page that all fans can donate to even if they do not purchase a virtual ticket.
  2. When a fan purchases a virtual ticket, they will be able to donate to your school as they pay for the ticket.
  3. Our partner, Vertical Raise, will launch a professional fundraising campaign for your team.
Vertical Raise is a leader in the sports fundraising industry and will raise your team a substantial amount of money.
How are donations split?
Donations are split 80/20 with your school, you get 80% and Vertical Raise gets their standard 20% fee. Most fundraising companies take 30%-50% of the donations they raise. It was important for us to find a fundraising partner that takes a low fee and still out raises their competition.
Can I sell single game tickets?
Yes, our platform is perfect for single game tickets. This is what fans are used to and by watching at home, they can have multiple people watch from the same device and save. Single game tickets give your fans flexibility on what they want to pay for without the risk of forgetting to cancel a monthly subscription. The school also benefits by getting revenue every game instead of allowing fans to watch multiple games in a month.
Can I sell season passes?
We currently only offer single game/event tickets.
How often will our school get paid?
You will receive a check each month for the previous month to allow time for processing any refunds, disputes, and streaming fees.
Can I live stream away & playoff games?
Yes, our system is extremely portable and can be used to stream anywhere you have an internet connection. Live streaming away and playoff games allows your team to more than double the amount of game you can offer. If your opponent does not live stream a game, but you are, then their fans watch your game and you get the extra revenue.
What sports can I Live stream?
The great thing about Sport Scope Live is that you can live stream any sport and charge your fans to watch. You can also accept donations for any sport and Vertical Raise will run all your fundraisers.
Do I need internet to live stream?
Yes, we recommend you use a Wi-Fi connection to live stream with at least 5Mbps upload speeds. If you are outside, you can use a hotspot or LTE with a least 5Mbps upload speeds, built-in LTE on your iPad or iPhone is usually more reliable than a hotspot. Internet upload speed is the most important thing when streaming, the faster the better your stream will be. Please do a speed test whenever you try to stream to ensure your fans get a quality stream.
How much data do I need with a hotspot or LTE?
The bandwidth your stream uses will max out at 2.25GB per hour of video. Most internet speeds will not max out the streaming bandwidth and we estimate a typical 3 hr. stream will result in 4-5GB of data being used. We recommend you use your stadium Wi-Fi for home games and a data package from a phone's hotspot, hotspot device or LTE package for away games. You will need to monitor your data to ensure the stream quality is not affected by low data.
Can I have outside partnership deals?
Yes, your school can work out any outside advertising deals you want and keep 100% of the revenue generated. In our Sport Scope Live app, you can upload company logos that support you and display them on your live stream for your fans to see. You could also show banners at your stadium during timeouts and halftime and read commercials anytime. Sport Scope would not receive any revenue from outside partnerships your school makes.
