Instant TV Channel - Cloud-Based Channel Production System

Instant TV Channel is a cloud-based tool that eliminates the the low-level and time-consuming details of Brightscript programming, shortening channel development time, reducing cost, and easing maintenance after the channel is in production. WYSIWYG theme and content editors make channel creation a breeze. Most changes can be made without repackaging and uploading the channel, shortening the turnaround time between design iterations. As soon as a change is made to a channel in an Instant Roku Channel editor, it appears on all Roku players that have the channel installed. Instant Roku Channel significantly reduces the time it takes to go from an initial concept to a public channel in the Roku Channel Store.

Instant Roku Channel supports on-demand video and live streams from Amazon, Brightcove, ScaleEngine, Vimeo, and other CDNs.

Custom channel development services are also available.
