Clicking on Clikia

Akin to similar streaming aggregator TikiLive, the recently launched Clikia features an eclectic mix of obscure free channels and pay packages.

Clikia’s free package includes 14 “live” channels, which doesn’t mean the programming itself is live but rather that you receive 24/7 linear feeds as if you were watching broadcast or cable channels. These include channels devoted to classic television, cartoons and movies; a couple of documentary outlets; Jewelry Television and another shopping channel; and channels devoted to Atlanta and New Orleans. The free package also includes two “CatchUp” channels from YouTube (in this case, Sprout and Ted.)

That leads in nicely to Clikia’s CatchUp package, which costs $4.99 per month and adds 77 more YouTube channels. Finally, there’s the Family TV package, which costs $7.99 per month and adds 24 more linear channels – including PBS, Gospel Music4U, Holy Oldys Classic TV, and Living Faith TV.

You can peruse all of Clikia’s offerings on its channel guide, and watch the free ones immediately without signing up.

So how can you sample or sign up for Clikia? You can go online at www.clikia.com; download the Clikia app for Android or Amazon Fire TV/tablets; or go to Roku’s Add a Channel and enter the private channel code “clikialive.” Clikia said that apps for iOS and Apple TV are also being developed.
