This, combined with a robust content-delivery infrastructure, minimal setup requirements, and a host of simple yet powerful features for broadcasting and promoting your channels, make TikiLIVE the clear choice to be your IPTV business partner.

Make Your Content Available on Any Device

As a broadcaster, you want your content to be seen by the largest possible audience. With TikiLIVE, anyone around the globe with an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, or a set-top box such as Roku or AppleTV can access your channels.

Our cloud-based Monster Encoder allows you to upload video in any format and have it encoded for playback on any device.

For a live streaming event, TikiLIVE’s HD Wave features broadcast your content to your channels in a high-definition stream without the buffering and other playback hiccups that can plague video streams from other providers.

No expensive specialized equipment is required — simply set up your camera (even a smartphone or tablet camera will deliver great results), click Start and you’re on the air!

Broadcast Your IPTV Channels with Ease

Does the technical side of getting an Internet broadcast to go live sound daunting to you? We’ve designed the TikiLIVE dashboard for people like you.

It has a simple, intuitive design with its functions in plain English, so no technical expertise is required to broadcast.

  • You create a new channel by clicking a link that says Create New Channel.
  • You set the playing order of the content on your channel by dragging and dropping the files in the order you want.
  • Your channel goes live when you click Broadcast Now.

What can be easier than that?

We’ve taken the technical pain points out of Internet broadcasting, so you can spend less time struggling with your tools and more time focusing on delivering quality content.

Social Media Integration Gives You Big Promotional Power

While promoting your channels is a crucial part of being a broadcaster, reaching potential consumers can be a big, costly headache. To make this part less of a chore, we’ve built in features to quickly and easily promote your channels to a vast source of potential viewers: social media users.

Through your dashboard, you can:

  • Post to Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ simultaneously
  • Easily embed sample video or promotional clips to these sites and to YouTube
  • Interact with your viewers with a live chat feed on your channels
  • Set up message boards to discuss what you broadcast and get feedback from viewers on what they like.

TikiLIVE’s social media integration leverages the promotional power of social media with a minimal investment of your time and effort.

Sales Tools Are Included

For the IPTV broadcaster who wants to build a sustainable business out of his or her channels, TikiLIVE provides sales features that give you the option to charge viewers for your content.
