According to a report by TechCrunch, to join a session users need to open the app when the show is airing. Users will get information about a show that is about to go on air via a poster that will appear within the app 30 minutes prior to each broadcast. On subscribing to an event, users will get a push notification when the show starts.
The good news is that users can watch these shows again 12 hours after they first aired, after which they will be lost forever.
Furthermore, the report notes that unlike other live events, its In the House show is meant to be watched with friends. Users can join a group video call as usual and then tune into the live content option to watch a show together.
