I have a client who would like to stream an amateur football game live.

Due to the costs of the project, he would like to charge each web viewer a couple of euros to cover the costs ( of camera men, equipment, labour for working unsociable hours, streaming license fees, website editing, publicity, redundant hardware, etc.)

Any advice on simple direct simple methods of collecting a few euros per viewer?

As the event is on a Sunday, there would be no one around to dish out passwords or tokens, it would need to be able to run on its own, receive payments and provide access.

Thanks you very much for that.

Does UStream offer an opportunity to bill viewers?

Do you know of any other means of charging for viewing streamed live games?
