Geo Language feature

Did you know that? The MYETV homepage can be very different from country to country and from different languages; we have compiled a list of 490 languages that match countries around the world via the GeoIP, with no customizations the GeoIP will assign to you a language taken from the main language of your Country which will be used as the default language for the entire platform. You can change this language via the “Settings – Change Language” menu.

Not only. Content owners can also decide to restrict the visibility of any content via one or two languages; in this way, the contents with this feature enabled can be displayed very different from country to country. If the contents are not restricted also with the GeoIP it will still be possible to view and/or access them by changing the language of the MYETV platform with that of the contents to be viewed, via the “Settings – Change Language” menu (but in this way also the language of the entire platform will change with the selected one). Global contents with no restrictions, on the other hand, are visible in all countries and through all languages.

You can view if a content has been restricted with GeoLanguage or GeoIP, directly through the timeline in the privacy icons or through the “more information” and “privacy settings” buttons of the content. To help dividing the timeline by countryes, we’ve builded the platform at https://map.myetv.tv which allows you to select easily a country from the vectorial map and see below the timeline with all the contents intended only for that country. Here is the list of 487 languages supported: https://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/php/code_list.php

The “geolanguage visibility” feature is intended for the main timelines for the main homepage and for the network homepage, for the features like playwall and for the instant play.

Please note: the search engine (only the “fast search” option) is not affected by the “geolanguage visibility” feature
