If you’re full of wanderlust — or even a travel vlogger — you’ve probably considered or experienced first hand the trouble of streaming live while on the road. Whether you’re simply a neighborhood away from home or halfway around the world, here’s how you can guarantee a solid, dependable live stream without internet.
“I have a thriving lifestyle live stream. Unfortunately, when I’m on the road, all that comes to a screeching halt — including the ad and affiliate revenue. I would love to maintain my live video while I travel, but work takes me to rural areas where dependable internet is unheard of.”
Fortunately, when you’re on location somewhere exotic or rugged, your live streams can continue working for you — no lost revenue, no lost momentum, no disappointed viewers.
With one simple tool, you can schedule pre-recorded videos to publish automatically as live video on all your channels. Whether for a day, week, month or more, Restream Scheduler will maintain your live video calendar, guaranteeing that all your content streams live on time.

“I work in the field as a travel vlogger. People love unique, remote locations abroad; however, these places rarely are serviced by good internet connectivity. I looked at expensive hardware and data plans to solve my connection issues, but then I found Scheduler. I was just like: ‘Yes. Exactly this. I’ll save so much money.’
Now, I shoot my footage, head to a café, then — over a cup of cappuccino — upload and schedule my streams. I am building my live stream audiences and exploring at the same time!”
