IsumaTV Mediaplayers may also be connected to local television broadcast systems in remote indigenous communities. Through these IsumaTV Mediaplayers, independent and local community managers can select any media content on the website for broadcast on their local community channel.
These television broadcasts are restricted to the remote indigenous communities where the IsumaTV Mediaplayers are located, and IsumaTV does not charge viewers for access to these broadcasts nor collects any payments from the television signal providers. In addition, no advertisements are broadcasted on these local community channels.
Through the installation of these IsumaTV Mediaplayers in remote indigenous communities, IsumaTV has created a network of local servers designed to help users distribute their media content to indigenous audiences, and to help indigenous viewers have access to more media content.
