Appspace lets you build your content strategy by providing access to premium content feeds designed and created by subject matter experts that address industry-critical issues with a steady stream of engaging content. Appspace has the following premium content available:
- Industry Feeds. The Industry Feeds card template displays general workplace and industry-critical content feeds from Appspace. Feeds are categorized by industry type or by general topic. This feed always shows current content, along with a 30-day preview of future content that is upcoming.
- Industry Content Collection. The Industry Content Collection card template contains a repository of content items that were previously displayed under Industry Feeds. You can browse and select any of the content items in the repository, and can filter based on the industry type or by general topic.
- News Feeds. The News Feed card template lets you choose from a selection of news providers to display news headlines and media. Each card template will be able to display multiple posts from a single news provider. If you wish to display news from multiple sources, multiple card templates can be used.
To display any of these premium content card templates on TV screens, you will require content licenses. One content license is needed per device that will be used to display premium content.

Publish Content to Users or Devices
Once you have selected and configured your premium content card templates, you will need to aggregate them into a channel for publishing.
- You will first need to add your newly created premium content card templates into a channel. Read this how-to article about adding content to a channel.
- Premium content in a channel can be displayed to premium users through the Employee App, or displayed on TV screens with workplace devices.
Apply Content Licenses to Devices
In order to display premium content on a TV screen through a workplace device, the targeted device will require a content license to be applied. Once a device has a content license applied to it, it will be able to display any of the premium content items in a channel.
- To apply a content license to a device, you will need to access the Device Licensing workflow in the console.
- You will then need to select the workplace devices that will display premium content, and apply the Industry Feeds or Infotainment Feeds content license to it.
