In this article we will talk about where to go to get your own Firetv TV channel and some of the pros of being on Amazon Firetv.
Today there are so many devices that are out there on the market today when it comes to choosing what platform you want to have your internet TV channel on. Roku, Apple TV, iPhone, Android, Android TV and last but not least Amazon Firetv. However with so many devices it can be difficult to choose which one is the best to get your channel on to expand your viewing audience.
So the advantages of being on Firetv is obvious; you have access to a large international audience and viewership. I really do not see a downside of getting on FIRETV except just managing the technical ends of it which can be difficult because the firestick is known for video stuttering and freezing in some cases. Other than that its a great platform. When we talk about international FIRETV beats out the ROKU because it has a much larger European audience (as well as a large US audience) than does the ROKU.
So what does it take to have your own channel on the Amazon Firestick platform? Well there are several pieces to this. If you have read our other articles then you know that you have to have a CDN (Content Delivery Network) because Amazon does not provide that. They will provide the platform but not the CDN. You also need some dedicated hosting to hold your networks cosmetic files (the files the viewers sees like logo and the way the app looks). You will also need a professional developer that understands video playback and encoding as well as memory configuration for apps that render streaming and VOD video solution. So several pieces that need to fit together to make your channel come alive.
So what does all of this cost and how do I get started? You can check out our prices on our internet TV page that will give you an idea of the cost of getting started with your own Amazon internet TV channel. However if you want to do it yourself it can cost a bundle of money hiring CDN's, programers and dedicated servers, that is why we offer this services all bundled in turn key packages. We give you the platfrom the control panel (for broadcasting your videos) as well as submit your app to the amazon App store (where Firetv Devices get their channels) so that your ready to go right out the box.
If you have video content that you want to distribute and maximize viewership then Firetv is the way to go. Its not only available in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, but also in Japan. Not to many devices can boast that!
