General Questions

How does Didja make money?

We make money by inserting ads on for-profit TV channels.  We bring on Community Video (PEGs, High School channels and more) on the system free of charge because we believe this adds great depth and color to our channel line-up.  

Do you run ads?

Advertising is an option, and if a community organization (such as a high school) desire advertising or sponsorships, LocalBTV takes a share of that new found revenue to pay for expenses. 70% of ad/sponsorship revenue goes to the community video organization.

Where is the company located?

We're based in Silicon Valley and have been in business for over 5 years.

How is my station listed in our app?

The LocalBTV app has created a "Community" section containing PEG and High School channels to ensure users can find your content with ease.

Cable Audiences are Declining!

As audiences make the switch away from cable, PEG TV channels are losing viewership and consequently, funding. With viewers now consuming streamed content on mobile devices, channels are being forced to look towards the alternatives to cable: custom apps and YouTube. These platforms are both expensive to promote and unsuccessful in attracting viewers. Luckily, there is new, better option: LocalBTV.

LocalBTV provides you a free, convenient way to recapture audiences and acquire new viewers on all devices.
