Getting started on IBM Watson Media is easy! In order to broadcast, you first need to create an account.

In order to create a account:

  1. Click on the 'SIGN UP' button in the upper right corner.

  2. This will take you to our pricing page. To sign up for one of our Pro Broadcasting plans, click on 'VIEW PRO PLANS' and select either a Silver, Gold, or Platinum Level account. You can sign up immediately for free, however, by selecting 'START FREE TRIAL'. The free trial lasts for 30 days, after which you can sign up for a Pro Broadcasting account or continue as a free user.

  3. After selecting your plan type, you will be directed to the signup page. Here, you can enter your first and last name, the email address you wish to be associated with your IBM Watson Media account (you will log in with this email address), and the password for your account. Please note that by signing up for IBM Watson Media, you are agreeing to our terms of service and our privacy policy.

  4. After creating your account, you'll want to check the email you used in creating the account for a verification link. This is to make sure that your email is really being used by you.

  5. Open the email, and click on the button to start your free trial!

  6. At this point, you can choose to go live immediately, check out the video manager, or just look around your account. You can find specific instructions on creating your first channel and broadcasting from our web broadcaster in this help center, or search lots of other  topics from our help center home page.
