Steps to creating a channel on Instagram’s IGTV
This is a very simple process, and you will be able to start your IGTV channel in just a few simple steps. Just follow these ones down below and soon you will have an IGTV channel of your own.
Instagram recently launched the IGTV app. It is separated from Instagram, and you are able to only watch and post IGTVs there. Of course, you can use the same account that is the main account in your Instagram application, or you can make a whole new account just for the IGTV channel purposes. That is totally up to you.
Okay, so, the first thing that you will need to do is to download that IGTV application from the App Store or from the Google Play Store. Just go ahead and open up the application store on your device and search for the IGTV app. As soon as you find it, click on the Download button to start the downloading process right away. When the downloading and installation processes have been finished, open up the IGTV app. If you have previously used the Instagram application, and you are already logged into your main Instagram account, you will be automatically logged into the IGTV app too. And, if you want to use a different profile in the IGTV app, simply log out of that account and log into another, or make a new one.
After you have set up the account that you are going to be using in the IGTV app, find the gear icon and tap on it to open up the Settings. That gear icon is usually located in the top right corner of the IGTV app. The first thing that you are going to see when that Settings menu shows up is “Create a channel” button. Tap on it right away and your channel will be created.
That is basically it. If you want to find out how to upload a video to your IGTV channel, head over to the second paragraph of this article.

Of course, you are also able to choose a cover for your new video and edit the video right there if you want to. When you are done with setting up the video and typing the name and the description, click on the Upload button to begin the uploading process.
