How to start your own Television Network successfully

Where are your viewers viewing from?

Are that able to access via high speed internet or not. If not you way want to consider satellite to save viewers data charges. Choosing a medium to deliver your TV channel that does not enable viewers to connect easily and with little cost can mean you lose a big amount of potential viewers.

Why is your content relevant?

What problem or pain point is your TV channel solving for them AND is it truly a problem they have OR is it just one you think they have? Because if not relevant they wont view media you make. Just because you start a TV channel does not guarantee you anyone will watch it. Stand out with relevant programing.

Who are you trying to reach?

You need to have a very clear image of this, otherwise you are like a blind person walking around hoping you may get to your destination though luck. Paint a picture of your viewer and get to know them deeply

What is the best medium for you. Online? Satellite?

You don’t want to choose a medium ie satellite or online when your real viewers don’t view media in that way at all.

Can you produce enough content thats relevant?

Content determines your success. Can you create new content fast enough so people can view it and that is remains relevant? new content takes a great amount of time to work. IF your content get stale and old people tune out

Lets be honest here. Starting your own Television Network, be it online or on satellite is NO easy task. If it were everyone would be doing it and since they are not, you should stop and ask why in your journey to ensure higher chances of success.
