Dish Network doesn't have all international Channel

Well,


I have a little problem here, I wanted to publish an international channel that is not available via DishWorld.I reached out to all parties involved and I still don't have an answer to my problem. Roku tells me to contact ottpartner@dish.com 1-877-811-4788 which I called and all the reps tell me they don't have any Latin channels. here is the web address that clearly say the international channels they carry http://dishworldiptv.com/. Now i'm stuck between Roku and DishWorld figuring out how to handle this problem.


Can someone help with this situation I don't need hindu, Arabic, Bangla, or any other Mid eastern channel I want Latin. I have my own content provider but that also has to go thru Dishworld. I was happier with the old system Roku approves it and we are all happy. Now the competition will not approve anything unless they are making money. Welcome to America!!!

Hi David----------------

unless there has been a huge change in how roku does business the inclusion of dishworld in no way stops you from providing any other foreign language program in a private channel (providing you get the content owners ok) or you from contacting said Latin provider about doing so.Which Latin programming is it you want?

OP, you may want to post this in the developers forum. You'll likely get the best advice there.

Re: Dish Network doesn't have all international Channel

HI Knuckle,

I'm trying to understand how this works. I have my own Latin streaming Content provider but from what i'm reading all streaming foreign languages should go thru DishWorld. I'm not sure if that is correct or is there another person I can contact to clear this up?

No, that isn't correct. You can develop your own channel.

You need to have rights to the content and Roku has to approve foreign language channels, public or private, but that's about it as far as I know.
The requirements can be found in the Developer Agreement.

Re: Dish Network doesn't have all international Channel

Question, if 90% of the foreign shows are already on youtube for my channel, why can't we use the same video on Roku or can we? All we do is increase the size from pc to TV. The 10% I know I must get approval. But how does Dish get the approval then from Youtube?

Has anyone read this and is there an answer back from Roku besides go fight it out with DishWorld who are actually giving me the finger.
