channel PEAR is a collaborative, cloud-based media platform that lets you discover and watch live content from around the world on your favorite devices. channel PEAR was launched in 2014.

IPTV providers often give their customers playlists or individual stream URLs to connect them to their content, but lack support when it comes to content playback on popular streaming devices. With channel PEAR, you can create and manage a personal media library in the cloud that integrates seamlessly with your existing setup and syncs the content of your library to all your devices.

channel PEAR lets users discover live content from around the world through the "Media DB" (media database), which consists of sources that other members of channel PEAR have posted. Please note that content in the media database is not moderated, not rated, and not guaranteed to work.

channel PEAR functions as a flexible and customizable hosted library that allows you to add and manage various types of media content ranging from live streams, MRSS feeds, individual videos, and more.

channel PEAR also offers a free RESTful API for developing custom integrations.

channel PEAR is not intended to replace your cable subscription and should not be used as such. channel PEAR is not a cable, satellite, IPTV, or OTA provider.
