Channels are a way to group specific broadcasts into a single video player so that viewers see only events specified for that channel (e.g. you can create a list of baseball-specific videos, or group your service broadcasts by sermon series).

You can use a channel to create a podcast that includes all of the broadcasts assigned to that channel. The Podcasting tab will allow you to adjust settings and create a feed that can be sent to Apple Podcasts or the Google Play store. Learn more about podcasting with BoxCast.

If you want to add past broadcasts to a channel, you can do that too. You'll simply click on the broadcast, hit Edit, and then go to the Publish tab. You'll see the Channels field there.

Common Questions

Can I embed a channel on my website?

Yes! Learn more about embedding your channel.

Does a public channel make my ticketed broadcasts free?

No, your individual broadcast settings will be applied to videos, even if they are in a channel. That includes ticketing, password protection, etc.

Can I ticket a channel and a single broadcast?

You can. You will want to ticket that broadcast and then ticket the channel. To give you an example, if you had 10 broadcasts in a channel all ticketed at $9.99 each but you wanted to offer a viewer the ability to watch all 10 broadcasts at a bulk price of $74.99, you would ticket the channel at $74.99 and that will override the individual broadcasts tickets settings.
