How to Create a Channel on Instagram IGTV

In this article, we will show you how to create your own IGTV channel in the new Instagram IGTV application. Also, we will explain how to start off your channel by uploading your first IGTV video. So, let’s start right away with the explanation.

Steps to creating a channel on Instagram’s IGTV

This is a straightforward process; you can start your IGTV channel in just a few simple steps. Follow the ones below, and soon you will have an IGTV channel of your own.

Instagram recently launched the IGTV app. It is separate from Instagram; you can 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 IGTV channel purposes. It is totally up to you.

The first thing that you will need to do is to download that IGTV application from the App Store or 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 the Download button to start the downloading process immediately. Once the download and installation process has been completed, open up the IGTV app. If you have previously used the Instagram application and are already logged into your main Instagram account, you will also be automatically logged into the IGTV app. If you want to use a different profile in the IGTV app, log out of that account and log into another or make a new one.

After setting up the account, you will use the IGTV app to find the gear icon and tap on it to open up Settings. The gear icon is usually located in the top right corner of the IGTV app. The first thing you will see when that Settings menu shows up is the “Create a channel” button. Tap on it right away, and your channel will be created.

That is 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.

Steps to uploading a video to your IGTV channel

This is also a very simple process. You will have to open up the IGTV app first. When the Home page loads, look for the + button. The button is usually located in the top left corner of your screen.

And now, your gallery will open up, and you will need to choose a video you want to upload to your IGTV channel. Tap on it when you do find it. You will be taken to another page where you will need to write the name and a short description of your IGTV video.

Of course, you can also choose a cover for your new video and edit the video right there if you want to. When you are done setting up the video and typing the name and the description, click on the Upload button to begin the uploading process. This process will only last a few seconds; after that, your IGTV video will be live, and everyone can see it. If you want to attract an additional audience, you can share that IGTV video to your Insta Story.
