We’re happy to announce that the new Viewing Experience that we’ve announced in December is now publicly available for all broadcasters!
The new channel design comes with lots of benefits:
- Responsive layout looking great on all screen sizes
- Large player and more room for the chat
- Large video gallery
- Interactive Chat & Social Stream
- Description now available for VODs
- Less ads on the page and a lot more room for your content.
Customization options include:
- Cover image
- About section with rich text formatting, including images and links
- Links to external websites (Facebook, Twitter, Paypal etc)
- Links to your other channels on Ustream
To see the new look in action, check out these channels that are already on the new design:
A great thing about the new design is that all customization will carry over to mobile. The iOS and Android app updates will be released in a few weeks.
From now on all new channels get the new design by default. If you have an existing channel you can choose to migrate to the new design manually until April 2nd, 2016 when the old channel design will be discontinued.
