  • Easy to use interface
  • Include a default icon and fanart (see the Graphics Guidelines below for details)
  • Use window titles for all sections
  • Look and feel must be consistent with other channels
  • No 18+ channels
  • Channels can't duplicate other channels already offered (e.g. please help build on the existing YouTube channel rather than submitting your own)

Graphics Guidelines

  • Icons must be 512x512
  • Icons must be PNG files and be named "icon-default.png"
  • Icon graphics should be good quality and not be blurry or pixelated
  • Fanart must be 1280x720
