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).

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 that channel. That could be ticketing, password protection, etc.

Can I ticket a channel and a single broadcast?

Yes! 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.
