Internet TV Channels have become the perfect way for specialist channels
to reach those niche markets. At a fraction of the price of a cable or
satellite channel, Internet TV has become the way for amateur or specialist
producers to get their media out there and viewed by the world.
Internet TV is available as either an On Demand or Scheduled service.
The pricing of Internet TV depends on the type of channel you want to run - Scheduled or On Demand. If you want to run an On Demand channel where the viewer selects the programme they would like to watch from a list take a look at our Media Packages. If you would like to run a channel where people tune in to see live broadcasts view our Internet TV Packages.
PlanetStream supports all the major streaming video formats, including...
- Windows Media
- H.264 "HD Codec"
Having your own Internet TV Channel gives you the opportunity to deliver high quality broadcasts to an audience of your choosing. If you would like to run a service such as 4OD or BBC iPlayer you will find more information in our On Demand section. If you would like to broadcast a set schedule of programmes to your viewers we have several options available to you under our Internet TV packages.
Bit rate is an expression of the quality of a broadcast, we recommend the following for Internet TV
128 Kbps - moderate quality for video
(excellent for audio only)
300 Kbps - good quality for video
(most popular for Internet TV)
800 Kbps - excellent quality for video
(high speed connections only)
We can provide a streaming service for a small community TV channel for as little as £150 per month. Equally we can meet the requirements of large multinational operations with huge numbers of viewers due to our massively flexible global network infrastructure.
Internet TV gives you, the producer, the opportunity to bring a viewing experience never before possible to select markets and is already being used by Religious Groups, Sports Teams, Music Groups and many more.
Internet TV brings the reality of true interactivity to the viewer, where
they can become a part of the show, from live opinion polls and two-way
communication to making purchases and choosing camera angles.
To launch your own Internet TV channel you need to work out what quality of broadcast you would like to send out and then how many viewers you expect, and you can change these at any time. When you have an idea of these view our Internet TV packages to see what it will cost you per month.
Internet TV Explained
The package you will require is dependent upon two things (i) the bit rate / quality of the broadcast (ii) the maximum number of concurrent viewers at any given time. The higher the quality, the greater the cost.
