Can live tv be shown. All we want really is the bbc one or two channels. 

Any ideas on how this could be made possible?

Gartree High,

We don't have any content that would display live TV channels, however there are probably multiple ways you could go about this. If your display supports picture in picture, you could simply load up the channel that you want on PIP and create an empty space in your presentation for it. If you have access to a live stream through the web, you could probably add that stream through the HTML or Web Page Widget.

Hi Gartree,

Here are a couple ideas.

You may want to take a read through this thread and more specifically CAI's answer https://community.risevision.com/rise_vision_inc/topics/how_do_you_get_tv_into_a_gadget?topic-reply-...

Another option that could be something like ScreenFeed, it's not "live" but they have a few news options.http://www.screenfeed.com/browse/category/news

Lastly if your TV has the picture in picture setting you could use it to show tv and your signage. 

Thanks,
Shea

Thanks

I had a look at that before i posted.

Still none the wiser. I think an html embed would work but dont know how to embed something like this

Hi Gartree,

An HTML embed will not work, the BBC does not allow that page to be displayed in an iframe. Unfortunately other than what I suggested above i'm not sure how you could get TV into your signage.

Gartree,

I know this live stream news channel from UK https://youtu.be/y60wDzZt8yg. You can embed it through custom HTML in your iFrame or YouTube Widget, which I recommend because it removes all YT ads. Unfortunately, this is the only news channel from UK I know that has live stream on YT.
