Updates + Sightings

The Whiskey Media channel is now currently installed by over 5,000 Roku users!

Not a bad little milestone, and it only took about 3 weeks to get there.  We’ve been maintaining a healthy and consistent 1,500 installs-per-week average.  It’s still listed under the “What’s New” section of the Roku Channel Store, and I’m sure that’s been having a positive impact as well.  Hopefully the numbers don’t fall off too much once the channel is no longer “new”.

Zatz Not Funny! recently got a sneak peak at the next Roku firmware, and take a look at which channel is selected in the new Channel Store!  Even better, the story was later picked up by Engadget.  It’s always nice to see the Whiskey Media channel make an appearance, and the new layout looks great too.

After a few busy weeks, I have now just started working on the next version of the channel.  At the very least, I plan to include the ability to search for videos and to listen to podcasts.  I’m toying with a few other ideas as well, but I’ll have to do some testing to see if they’re feasible.

More to come!

One week out

It’s been a week since our Whiskey Media channel was published to the Roku Channel Store, and we’re happy with the results! It’s been downloaded over 1,500 times in just 7 days, which seems like a pretty good number. Hopefully the download rate doesn’t plateau too quickly.

In related news, it also got some video attention from Whiskey Media’s own Tested!

Will and Norm took a gander at the Whiskey Media channel during their Roku Quick Look. FYI guys, I wanted to have Tested on the channel! Currently only Giant Bomb + Comic Vine offer APIs, so that’s what I supported. Tested + Screened + Anime Vice will be added as soon as their APIs are exposed, which I hope is soon!

All in all, a good week.
