I see "en vivo" on some spanish news websites. Usually that means that you can click on a link to listen to streaming audio of their news (or any radio station format).

I'd say "en directo". "En vivo" sounds as an Anglicism.

Interesting. Do websites for radio stations in Spain say "en directo"? Because when I look for radio websites from Latin America to listen to online, they always use "en vivo" if you want to listen live....

Take a look at this website: http://www.rpp.com.pe/

Talking about radio or TV in Internet it's used "online" (in English) or also "en directo", though online is more common. But you can watch "un partido de fútbol en directo" on TV, or you can go to a "concierto de música en directo". If the game is over, you could watch it on TV "en diferido" (recorded).

I was thinking of a saying that I've ever heard, but not very often, when somebody has gone to a doctor and has done some painful treatment (I'm sorry, I find it difficult to explain it in English). For instance, you've gone to a dentist and has taken a back teeth out to you:

¡Me ha sacado la muela en vivo y en directo!

But I'm not sure about the meaning of that "en vivo". Maybe that could mean "alive"
