So I've dabbled with instanttvchannel.com, and am now waiting for about two weeks for my channel to be either approved, or refused where they'll tell me what the flaws in it are, and I guess I can resubmit then.
So while I'm waiting, I was wondering, what is the difference between using instanttvchannel.com and the Roku SDK kit that you can download off their site. I haven't taken a look at it yet, but figured I'd reach out to anyone here who can give be a quick break down of things that a newbie should know.
Re: Difference of instattvchannel.com & Roku SDK kit
Roku SDK: You will spend many hours coding in Brightscript, many hours reading through the Roku docs, and many hours searching through this forum before you get your channel working.
Instant TV Channel: You can build a Roku-approvable app in less than a day. Hard-to-code functions like nested lists, Amazon S3, In-Channel Purchasing, Registration & Linking, Auto-Play, Scheduling, Searching, Google Analytics, VAST, RAF, Nielsen, and more are built-in. You don't have to code anything and don't need to provide any XML.
Admittedly I'm somewhat biased .
