Direct Publisher for updating an existing channel?

Thu Oct 06, 2016 2:34 am

from what i read about the new direct publisher
  • it will allow automatically the channel and content to be included in roku search
  • and you can monetize the channel with ads (easily)
is there a way to update an already existing channel
with a new package - produced by direct publisher


i have a channel that is live with about 6k subscribers
if I can update this channel with a new package from direct publisher
then I can easily monetize the channel with ads and also get included in search..

that would be awesome
please let me know if there is a way to do this...

I did notice in the options menu beside the channel in the Manage Channel list that there is a convert to Direct Publisher. I think this is probably what you are looking for.

In the options icon next to you channels, you can convert your channel to a Direct Publisher / Feed based channel.

You'll still need to create a content feed and follow  the instructions here: https://developer.roku.com/publish

Here's a sample Titan feed you can demo with: https://api.myjson.com/bins/4tu28
