Why Virtual Channels?

Tailored experiences
Build an entire channel around a specific interest or audience, or set up a temporary “pop-up” channel with 24x7 programming that supports a specific live event with a combination of live and on-demand content.
Region-specific scheduling
Our approach makes it easy to handle content blackouts (like live sports limitations) or other restrictions. From a common stream, region-specific variations are built and delivered to the right screens.
One user-friendly, drag-and-drop interface to create and command your linear schedules. Define your sources, upload your assets, define your policies (regional and/or global), and launch your channel.

Can we still call it TV?

Let’s start by redefining “watching TV” simply as the consumption of linear video — programming that streams to a screen according to a defined schedule, with or without advertising. Now that our screens are no longer just in front of the couch, it’s worth asking: Beyond a truly live event like sports or news broadcasts…is linear video even relevant anymore?
