We know that the ability to livestream regular Les Mills releases to club members has been top of mind, so we have been working on a solution that covers our music licensing requirements to expand livestreaming capabilities. We have provided special royalty-free music releases as a short-term solution, but you will now be able to livestream regular releases through your club. You may need to use cover music in these livestreams, so please make sure your club has checked with your local music society before starting. We know you’ll have more questions so tune into our upcoming webinar on to learn more details and get your questions answered.
As with live classes, livestreaming of regular releases must be done via a licensed club, and an additional livestream music license is required by the club.
If you are currently employed by a club, please get in touch with your club to discuss this. The music licensing your club secures will determine if you can stream releases with original artists or covers. Please know, you will now be able to download cover music for the Q1 and Q2 2020 releases that you have already purchased to allow you to stream these. We will also be making cover music files for the Q3 2020 releases available free of charge. There will be more details to come on back releases. Initially, cover music will only be available for BODYFLOW®, BODYPUMP™, BODYCOMBAT™, BODYATTACK™, CXWORX™, RPM™, SH’BAM™ and BODYSTEP™
If you are not currently employed by a club, you are able to continue livestreaming the royalty-free music workouts. These will continue to be available until clubs re-open globally, but we will not be adding any new content to the existing playlist. Looking for a licensed facility? Update your preferences in the Instructor Portal to indicate you are available to teach.
To help you and your club livestream successfully, we have created a livestream guide that covers music licensing requirements, key business rules and setup recommendations. Your club is able to access this from their local Les Mills market contact.
Livestreaming is a great way to connect with your club members and we are excited to have a solution for you to deliver Les Mills workouts with your current releases.
The best way to receive additional guidance and answers to your questions will be to register for our upcoming webinar. Once you’ve registered, you will receive the recording to watch On Demand anytime. This is true for any of our webinars!
