Setting up a photo slideshow as the off-air content on a channel

Whenever your channel is off-air (no live content is broadcasted) you can show an image or a slideshow on the channel. Or you can choose to put an off-air playlist for this purpose together.  

If you decide to show an image or a slideshow (multiple images) on your channel in its off-air state, there are a few things to consider before uploading an image:

  • Maximum file size is 10Mb
  • Max image size: 6000x6000 pixel.
  • You can add maximum 20 images to an off-air slideshow (basically per channel)
  • Maximum file size is 10MB
  • Supported file types are .jpg and .png
  • Maximum resolution is 6000x6000px
    • Recommended minimum resolution is 720x720px
    • Recommended image aspect ratio is 16:9. Please note that uploaded images which don’t have – or do not conform to – 16:9 aspect ratio will be shown in full against black background or will have black bars on the sides.
