Live Streaming EAA sessions for Outreach

I ran across a thread on the Cloudy Nights forum, where the OP was trying to setup a live stream facility for an EAA observatory installation. This would seem to be an ideal sort of attraction for Australian observatories, or private observatory operators who have the room and gear to set it up. EAA is not very costly to establish, but getting it into a stream and having that hosted is another matter (beyond me).
Perhaps live streaming from Qld Astrofest, or the NSW Star Party, etc might allow off site participation and encourage future attendees to get involved. Just a thought, please share your views on this topic.

PS, of course this assumes some sort of network coverage, but hey Elon Musk's Starlink might be ideal for the feed.

Sounds like it would add to the party however QLD Astrofest traditionally has had bad internet .. Unless there has been an upgrade recently......
