Browse through the following topics for more information about creating and managing your Ustream Account.
Ustream accounts are free and there is never a charge to broadcast or view Ustream Broadcasts.
To sign up for an account simply visit: http://www.ustream.tv/login-signup and provide the required information.
One you have submitted the requested information at http://www.ustream.tv/login-signup you should receive a Verification Code by email to confirm your email address is valid. Without this code you will not be able to complete registration. For more information please see How to resolve problems with Ustream Verification Code
Once a Ustream username has been created, it may not be modified. If you choose to delete your username, the same lettering cannot be used for a new account, even if the capitalization is different. So please choose your username carefully.
Only one Ustream username may be created per e-mail address.
Upon registering for a free Ustream account you should receive a Verification Code by email to confirm your email address is valid. Without this code you will not be able to complete registration.
Here's some common problems with Verification Codes and how to resolve them:
If you registered longer than 24 hours ago, you'll need to request a new one. You can do this by visiting http://www.ustream.tv/forgot-password. Enter your username or e-mail address and the password verification code email will be sent to you. If you do not receive that e-mail, please make sure to check all of your spam and bulk folders.
If you do not receive the Verification Code e-mail, be sure to check your spam and bulk folders in the e-mail account used to register your account with Ustream. If you do not see any e-mail, your username is most likely associated with a different e-mail address. If you received multiple Verification Codes, use the most recent one.
If the issue persists, please submit a Support Ticket for assistance. For quick resolution be sure to include all of the following information even though some of it might seem irrelevant:
Since an email address can be associated with only one Ustream account at a time we'll show you how to disassociate your email address from your current Ustream account so it can be used to register a new Ustream account.
Follow the following instructions to disassociate your e-mail address from the first account in the Account Settings. Once completed, you may register a new Ustream account with that same email address.
All Ustream members have a profile which can typically be found at http://www.ustream.tv/user/yourusername. For an example of the new profiles see my profile.
Ustream offers Premium Memberships for a low monthly fee so you can watch all your favorite shows without pesky advertisements. Premium Members also receive a shiny Premium Member Badge and bolded text in the Social Stream and a Premium Member Profile Icon.
While Ustream would like to offer these perks for free, running the best live video site on the web isn’t cheap, so charging for the removal of ads allows Ustream to offset the costs while improving the viewing experience.
Premium Memberships are an optional upgrade for Ustream users. You can still view and broadcast on Ustream for free! Premium Membership simply enhances the viewing experience.
Signing up for Premium Memberships is super easy:
Premium Memberships only remove ads for you as a viewer, it does not remove ads
on your Ustream channel. If you are interested in Ad-Free Broadcasting, you can find more

First be sure you really want to delete your account as there is no way to recover it once it has been deleted.
If you should wish to use Ustream again, you will be required to provide another email address. You cannot reuse the email from a deleted account.
Deleting an account only provides a way of disabling an account in chat and social streams. It may not remove channel pages or all your recorded videos. If you wish to remove your channel pages and recordings, you must first manually delete all of them from your dashboard before deleting your account. Please be sure you would like to delete it as there is no undo!
