July’s Best Up and Coming Broadcast Channels on TikiLIVESummer is nearly upon us, and that usually means all of your favorite shows are on hiatus, or will be soon. Traditionally, summer television programming has been a bit of a broadcasting desert, with networks holding back their best programming for the seasons when viewers are more likely to be home. What better time to explore the wide world of Internet television broadcasting on your mobile device or digital set-top box?

Whether you’re looking for sports, travel, entertainment, lifestyle shows, or inspiration, IPTV has channels to suit just about every taste. And many of those channels are hosted by and delivered to you with TikiLIVE.

We make it easy for anyone to create channels that deliver high-definition, no-hiccup video to any Internet-enabled mobile device or TV set-top box such as Roku and AppleTV. Many of these channels stream programming 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with the help of our automated playlist features. Many channels also broadcast live events, and we use banners to notify viewers of upcoming events, as well as ticketing features for pay-per-view events or subscriptions.

Here is a sampling of channels hosted by TikiLIVE that are growing in popularity with IPTV audiences and that make for perfect summertime viewing.

This channel offers a wealth of talks by influential experts offering their informed perspectives on the urgent issues of our day: climate change, the growing role of technology, and applications of the law, to name just a few. From the channel description:

TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.

This channel is perfect for the viewer who doesn’t equate turning on video with turning off the brain.
