I've been researching (I'm totally new to this) on how to set up a full service, professional and commercial TV station with a variety of programming. But I haven't been able to strip down to the basics as to what exactly I need (do I need a broadcasting licence? Do consumers need a box?) exactly to operate (with fully staffed people).
Instead of relying on existing cable and satellite networks, the content is delivered directly to people's computers and TVs.
You need a couple of cameras (if doing live presentations), some pre made content with a playback device such as a black magic hyper deck, switcher, a live streaming encoder, an account with a CDN, and a website that has a built in player that can accept a live stream feed.
All doable for about $60k setup.
$1.70 per GB for CDN costs there abouts. That includes every user downloading and you uploading.
