APRIL 8, 2018 - In preparation for the shutdown of Original Livestream on July 9, 2018, announced earlier this week, the Roblox Television Networks Group has launched the “HD Switchover” campaign, which aims to move both viewers and broadcasters to newer, higher-quality broadcasting platforms in advance of the service’s shutdown.

Original Livestream had served as a cornerstone of Robloxian television’s development, growth, and innovation since the origins of Robloxian television broadcasting in 2008, but in recent years, development had ceased on the antiquated Flash-based platform, and in advance of the discontinuation of that technology, the RTNG had already been planning to migrate from the platform.

In addition to continued broadcasting for Robloxian television company owners, the main selling point of the transition for viewers is the launch of high-definition broadcasting – a long-desired goal for the industry, but impossible to achieve under the constraints of the former Original Livestream platform. The industry’s move to new streaming platforms will allow broadcasters to broadcast in the now-standard high-definition television format for the first time ever.

Over the three-month countdown to the discontinuation of Original Livestream, the Roblox Television Networks Group will promote the switch to high-definition broadcasting, encourage broadcasters to plan their migrations to new services, and advocate for broadcasters to publicize their plans to inform viewers.

In addition to its existing promotional tools, the RTNG will launch a brand new page on its website, rtng.tk/hd, and social media additions, to promote the changes and inform viewers with news and updates about the transition.
