Quick Start Guide - Setting up your channel

If you don’t already have one, set up a Recast fan account. Go to the Recast.tv home page and hit the ‘join now’ button. You will be asked to enter an email address and password to create your account.

Using the link you received in your ‘Welcome to Recast’ publisher email, set up your account on Recast Publish. You will need to provide your individual details including name, address and contact information, or the details of the organisation you are representing.

Read and agree to our Terms and Conditions, you will not be able to publish content on Recast until you have agreed to our T&Cs.

Set up your channel. To do this, you will need to add your channel name and description, along with a profile picture and cover image, to represent your brand and the type of content you’ll be sharing.

  • Profile Picture (1080 x 1080 pixels)
  • Cover Image (1920 x 1080 pixels)

Tip: Don’t use any text on your cover image as it is used in various different shapes and sizes around the site and text gets cut off.

To add additional admins for your channel, go to the ‘Channel Admins’ tab. You will need to enter the full username for the fan account you want to add as a channel admin.

Tip: You can find your username by clicking on your account and then ‘Edit profile and data’

You can now access your Recast Publish account at publish.recast.tv.

Upload or schedule your first piece of content by clicking the ‘New Video’ button and selecting the content type.

Tell you fans about your channel. Make sure you’ve added a link to your Recast channel from your website and on social media. Make it as easy as possible for fans to find and watch your content.

Tip: We have a whole section of marketing assets and advice available to you to help you promote your channel.
