If you are interested in live-streaming your production, please complete our Nonprofessional Licensing or Professional Licensing forms and be sure to select the streaming option. Be aware that electronic rights such as live-streaming are not available for all DPS shows, as those rights remain with our authors or copyright holders. If your show has not yet been cleared for streaming, we will do our best to get you an answer from our authors and their representatives as soon as possible.


A DPS Streaming License using ShowTix4U offers you 3 ways to stream your show with the option to handle your ticketing needs:

  • Live-Streaming: Stream a live event in real-time.
  • Scheduled Content: Stream pre-recorded content you schedule for viewing at a fixed time or times.
  • Video On Demand: Upload a pre-recorded video of your event or previous productions for patrons to purchase and watch on-demand.
