Let's suppose you are using one of the "Live streaming Apps" like "Periscope" (the one I talked
about in one of my previous threads), "Bigo Live", "Tango", etc. There are an awful lot of them out there.

Now that you are going live and being watched by a whole lot of people through the App on their cell phones. You say anything about an activity you do very frequently on/in/during your broadcasts. It can be just about anything.

Like you are cooking some dish in your kitchen, You are moving around in your car. You are just strolling along a beach. or just about anything. And somebody asks you.

Hey, You are always cooking/riding your car/strolling along the beach. Will you you respond like this?

"I love doing that on my broadcasts".
(or)​
"I love doing that in my broadcasts".

Will you use the preposition "in" or "on" in this situation?

Or is it like British people use "in" and Americans use "on" while talking about an activity that they do on/in their broadcasts? Just like when they talk about an address or location they say.

I'm on 6th street. (US)
I'm in 6th street. (Brit)

Yes, in (in!) the US, the content is in a broadcast.

However, broadcasts are on-air or on the air.

Don't capitalize apps. Only capitalize proper nouns and the first letters of sentences.
