You only need to enter two things to create your first channel. The first thing is the name you want to give your channel. This can be anything. You can also provide an description for your channel. This is just for your convenience and optional.

The last and most important part is the Ingest Location. This location should be as near as possible to your origin server.

Possible regions are: Amsterdam, Bangalore, Frankfurt, London, New York, San Francisco, Singapore and Toronto.

It is possible that not all locations are available all the time. If the location you need is not available at the moment just check back in a few minutes.
