Channel Options - View, Boo And Cue:

  • View: This is the window the content will play in.

  • If you are viewing and booing from the same computer, open the View and Boo windows in different tabs or windows.
  • You are only counted as a participant if you have a Boo window or client open.
  • The lineup will not advance unless one View window is active for the Channel.
  • Not all options exist for all Channels, it depends on the Affiliation type the Station has with the Network.
  • The default threshold for booing an item off is greater than 50% of active Boo clients, except for 2 or 1 Boo clients, then a Boo always advances the Lineup.


  • I have a Network 'cool-network' which contains members.
  • There is a Station 'cool-station' affiliated with that Network.
  • There is a Network called 'lame-network'. This Network is one of many that wants to watch and boo 'cool-station'.
  • Someone in the 'lame-network' invites the Boo Jockey of 'cool-station' into the 'lame-network' Network and the Boo Jockey creates a 'boo only' Affiliation of 'cool-station' with 'lame-network'.
  • The members of 'cool-network' go to the Channel: and they can submit content (Cue), View and Boo. They are the only ones that can see anything at that Channel.
  • The members of 'lame-network' go to the Channel: and they can View and Boo.
  • The Boo Jockey decides 'lame-network' Booser's taste is so bad, he changes the Affiliation to View only.
