RokuGuide Quick Look: This channel bills itself as a home for webisodes, which are generally episodes of video series shown on the web, such as Husbands. I was expecting this channel to akin to Streamin Garage, which carries the Husbands webisodes, but I became confused as to the true purpose of Octave.
Octave appears to be a random collection of videos by amateur videographers. Many of the videos seem to be produced by high school students, showing clips of the local high school football team and profiling student activities. There are also videos like the one-minute pixilated clip of professional fishermen bringing in a net of fish, with no titles or explanation of what we're seeing.
The channel has three categories: Whatcom, Skagit, and Island. After going through the channel structure several times and Googling these titles, I finally realized that the video collection isn't so random after all. This channel streams amateur videos about small-town events in Washington State. Whatcom carries videos from Whatcom County, with subcategories named after towns in that county: Bellingham, Blaine, Everson, etc. The Skagit County category offers videos about Mount Vernon, Sedro-Wooley, and Burlington. Island features Anacortes, Coupeville, and Oak Harbor.
