We just finished our “How To Start and Run Your Own TV Channel” webinar simulcast on TheVJ.com and our Facebook page, and now want to share the recording with you.

There was a time, not so long ago, when owning a TV channel was limited to either major media companies or billionaires.  

We should know. Over the past 30 years, we have designed and built TV stations and networks for clients all over the world – from TeleZuri in Switzerland to EriTV for the Eritrean People’s Liberation Army to NY1 to Channel One in London to Sri Lanka Business Channel to a string of hyperlocal broadcast network for The BBC and many more. But no matter where the channel was and no matter how diverse the content, there was one thing that held them together – they were incredibly expensive to launch. 

Those days are over.  Now, it is possible for ANYONE to launch and own their own online TV channel.  

The real trick here is not just how to start your own TV channel, but how to make it profitable.

We’ll be doing this again next Thursday, March 30, on a new topic so make sure to stay tuned to VJ World and our social media accounts for more updates. We will also be answering your questions, both live and pre-submitted. If you have a specific question you would like answered, you can submit it here.  If you want to join in the dialogue during the webinar, you comment on the Facebook stream.

We hope you’ll join us and look forward to seeing you either on TheVJ.com or on our Facebook page.

A huge market for content had just opened up.

Q: What do TV news and Netflix have in common? A: They both appear on the same screen. They both tell stories.

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
