8ctave HD

Postby 8ctave HD » Mon Mar 18, 2013 4:05 pm

Hello, forum friends. My apologies for our lack of logons, we've been burning a lot of candle-ends here lately.

8ctave HD is a public channel in the 'news and weather' category, and we also have a private channel we use for in-house testing. In mid-February our public side was taken down by engineering to fix a bug affecting viewers using older displays.

To satiate subscribers, we cloned 8ctave to our beta channel and instructed viewers to install privately while our patch awaited public approval in Roku-Queue. By doing this, we inadvertently gave out thousands of 'backstage passes' to our tinkertoy, and once 8ctave HD returned to public prominence our private channel wasn't so private anymore.

For the curious, H*E*R*O* is our second entry into the Connected TV marketplace, a Military Grade Media Network with amazing POV wartime footage and a uniquely formatted channel guide that feels more like HALO than HULU. Pre-previews are positive, and like many others we're holding out for our H*E*R*O* to deploy in the public store soon.

Our best to you,

8ctave HD

Split topic off from where it was originally posted, as it was better suited to its own topic. Feel free to use THIS thread as your general update thread.

I've been watching the channel since Saturday and really digging it. The PQ on a lot of the channels is fantastic. Keep adding channels and this will become a big Roku channel.

I stumbled on to 8ctave yesterday. What a great channel.

I do have 1 content request. About a year ago, there was a Podcast on the stock Apple TV that had Newsy.com clips in their chronological order. No Catagories, just the order they were published. That Podcast is no more and the Newsy Roku Channel only has reports that are categorized. Anyway you could put something on 8ctave like the old Podcast for Newsy?
