Now that online video has become huge, there are ways to set up your very own online channel. All you need is a web cam and a Blog TV, or YouTube Account.
Blog TV – You set up your own room, with your webcam at the top of the chat window, and people log into your channel and watch and listen to whatever is going on. It is a neat idea, although it is still very new so there isnt’ much available at the moment, but you could be the first to create something really entertaining!
getdemocracy.com – This is a great one! The site is run by a non-profit orginization which aims to make online TV free for everyone to download and broadcast. They offer a step by step guide to recording and broadcasting your own shows. This site also offers a free online TV client so that you can browse through channels and shows with ease.

Brightcove Studio – This is another site where you can create your own internet channel. With this site you can actually sell the show’s and videos that you create so that users can view them on their computers or televisions. This site has a comprehensive training section you learn how to do almost anything you need to know. It also has an affiliate program, which will let other people sell your videos for you.
As I have said before, this kind of thing is only the begining. I think it’s only a matter of time before these options expand. If you know of any other onlinetv sites that allow you to set up your own channel then let us know.
