The Feed can contain multiple TV Shows which contain Feed episodes and various settings and options.
The TV Show is a container of the Feed timeline and all of the settings contained inside.
Entering the Applicaster Dashboard (cms.applicaster.com) and then clicking on Feed & Interactive will show us the landing page where we can create TV Shows.
Creating a TV Show

To start the Feed, we must first create a TV show.
In this screen we can see the following options:
Name - This will be the name of the TV show, displayed in the CMS and in the app.
Facebook Page URL - Enter the URL for the Facebook page you wish to connect to the Feed so that posts from this Facebook page are shown to the connected user. Use the Validate Facebook Page button to confirm the page will work.
Twitter Hashtags - Enter comma separated Twitter hashtags you wish to pull in the Feed for the connected user. Add # before each hashtag.
TV Show Image - Upload an image for the show. It will be used as the TV Show's thumbnail inside the CMS. Size: 720x405.
Click Save to complete the creation of the TV Show.
