The Satanic Temple TV is excited to announce our new chat feature: DemonChat.
DemonChat lets us enable chat rooms on our video platform along-side live content, so you can chat with other viewers while you are watching. We want you to be able to participate in a “watch party” style experience experience similar to what you can get on Kast or YouTube Live, but right here on TSTTV.
The rest of this article is a tutorial to help you get started using DemonChat! Please remember: We provide chats for free on live events, but it isn’t free for us to provide this service. Please consider subscribing as a member for only $9.99 / month to get access to everything on the platform.
Get Started: Free Chat Access
To use DemonChat you need to be signed in and have access to the video content. If you are a member ($9.99/month for access to everything on the platform) then you are all set! You can skip down to the next section. If you are not a member, then when you go to the video with the chat (the screen shots here are using The Devil’s Dispatch LIVE as an example), you will see a video with a paywall (indicated by the red BUY button) and a section for the DemonChat application.
If you are on a desktop or laptop browser, the DemonChat section will be to the right of the video; if you are on a phone, you will need to scroll down to the bottom to see the DemonChat section below the video.
To activate DemonChat, you need to sign up… but, you can do it for free! Here are the steps:
- Click the red “BUY” button and select the “SIGN UP” option
- Enter your email address and a password to create your account
- On the price selection screen, click on the $6.66 price option
- On the payment screen, click “add voucher” and type in DEMONCHATTER
- That code will give you a 100% discount and give you FREE access
The voucher will work for all DemonChat-enabled videos, so you only have to do this once. However, the voucher will not give you access to any other videos on the platform… so you may still want to consider signing up for a $9.99/month membership!
Before The Event
Once you have access, if the chat has not started yet you will get a screen like this. Be patient! The chat will be scheduled to start 30 minutes before the live show.
How To Join The Chat
One the chat has started up, your view will change. You are given the option to choose a “Chat Username”. A randomly-generated suggestion will appear in the text box. You can click the “refresh” arrow to get a new suggestion, or you can type in your own username. Once you have selected a username, click on “JOIN CHAT”!
Ready To Chat!
Once you have joined, you can dive right in to chatting! We have a Chat Room Code of Conduct that you must observe while you are using DemonChat.
Remember, for laptop and desktop browsers the chat will be to the right of the video, but for mobile devices the chat will be underneath. The mobile view should be optimized for you to hold your phone in portrait orientation, so you can see the video in the top half and the chat in the bottom half. We know different phones have their own quirks, so if you view looks bad or is difficult to use, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and send us a screen shot, along with the name of the type of phone and browser, so we can help get it straightened out!
If you want to leave the chat, you can simply close your browser, navigate to a different page, or type
/quit in the message box. If for some reason the chat doesn’t show up, or sticks with a “loading” message, please try refreshing the browser…. sometimes things just get stuck! For anything else, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any question at email@example.com!
Have fun chatting, and thank you for enjoying The Satanic Temple TV!Tags: Something New
