04-09-2011 13:06 BJT

YouTube on Friday launched YouTube Live, a homepage for live content on the site and a new live-streaming platform.

As part of the service, the world's largest video-sharing website introduced a new browse page, www.youtube.com/live, where users can view live events and add upcoming events to their calendars.

YouTube said it would gradually roll out a live streaming beta platform, which will allow certain YouTube partners with accounts to stream live content on the website.

The new service will "integrate live streaming capabilities and discovery tools directly into the YouTube platform for the first time," YouTube said in a blog post.

U.S. media recently reported that YouTube is planning a major overhaul and is negotiating with Hollywood and music producers for materials to offer on a lineup of new channels, with the aim to compete with broadcast and cable television.
