Frequently Asked Questions
These FAQs will help you better understand our services, processes and technical specifications. Still have a question? Please contact us.
To get started, contact us to discuss your project and its requirements. We can provide anything from the entire production and live stream of an event or we can dovetail into existing vendors and provide à la carte services.

Although we are not integrated with Eventbrite, many of our partners sell live or on-demand access to their events via Eventbrite. FORA.tv will then issue a code to the purchasers for viewing access.
