TV - Cast setup

Casts are used to show and share leaderboards and players’ achievements in Pointagram. Each cast has its own script of competitions, battle results, widget boards, and badge awards to show.

A cast can be accessed through either a share link or by going to tv.pointagram.com and enter the cast’s channel name and pin-code.

Casts can be displayed on a big screen TV by attaching a media player like a chrome bit or windows mini-PC.
