"The highs and lows of being a professional online streamer" PBS NewsHour 7/12/2018
SUMMARY: As more people consume video online, "streaming" is the internet's version of live TV, but with instant feedback from fans. How have star streamers turned activities like taping themselves playing video games into profitable careers? Economics correspondent Paul Solman reports from DreamHack, a gaming convention in Austin, Texas.
Editor's Note: In this report on streaming, we point out police are sometimes called to a streamer’s house after a hoax call. In some cases, SWAT teams arrive in response. A previous version of this story mistakenly identified a man killed by police in one such case as a streamer. In fact, the victim was not a streamer. We regret the error.
