Hi. I’m trying to decide whether to buy ROVIDX apps for my wordpress site. Let me describe what I’m trying to do.

Basic Idea —> digital signage project to connect charities with churches.

Step 1 – Each church purchases a Roku or firestick and plugs it into any wall mounted flatscreen.

Step 2 – They all access the same ROKU or Firestick channel/app.

Step 3 – Several charities upload advertisements/announcement images to a central web drive (dropbox, google drive is fine)

Step 4 – these images get pushed out to all the ROKU channel/app or Firestick channel/app… as simply rotating announcement or advertisement slides on the TV’s at each of the churches.This way the charities can dump their ads and announcements in a web folder/google drive/whatever, and all their ads show up on church TV’s around the country (with the ROKU devices) as digital sinage (i.e. rotating wall ads).

IN OTHER WORDS – while it would be cool to set up a TV/movie channel, I’m really just interested in having people accessing images. Yes, yes, I could do all the extra work of weekly turning images into a movie slideshow, but this is 2020, thats uncessary extra work. (I’ve found one other source that does the above with ROKU but its too expensive to whitelabel).

EXTENDING THE IDEA…

Step 5 – some churches may no like the idea for just announcements/ads but would go for it if they could use the screen for their own digital sinage.

Step 6 – individual channels are set up for each church that wants their own digital sinage.

Step 7 – we do the same thing as 1-4 but just for an individual channel created for a single church to use for its own sinage.

I know this can be done because I’ve done it through another site… but its too costly to do multiple channels and remove whitelabels.

Why don’t I just have the churches buy $150-200 units for the back of their TV’s and do read digital sinage. Cuz they are all really small churches in our network and wouldn’t go in for a product like that, but my jump for a $40 ROKU or firestick. (Not all churches are big into $$$ believe it or not).
