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.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.

What TV News Could Be
February 26, 2024

When television was invented in the 1930s, no one knew what TV news was supposed to look like. The medium had never existed before, and so, like Gutenberg half a millennium, prior, the first creators of TV news had to fall back on a medium with which they were familiar, and that was radio.

Maybe scary stories drive ratings… or maybe they don’t.
