Live Video feed for those that can't say to be away from the action while ate work.
SKY NEWS LIVE VIDEO FEED ^ | October 8, 2000

Posted on 10/08/2001 5:24:09 AM PDT by joebellis

Sky News is the sister network of Fox News. It looks like they are sharing resources right now.

A few moments ago, Oliver North was on live giving his assessment of yesterday bombong runs.

Their website indicates that this video feed is live 24 hours a day.

Be Well informed throughout the day.

I was viewing this video feed yesterday when first reports of attacks come out a full 12 minutes before US network reported the AP story.

They also edit out all of their commercials, inserting a little musical diddy containing just the Sky News Logo.

NO annoying commercials!

Thanks joe.

Am I correct in understanding that Fox News Channel no longer offers live feeds?

Thanks for the link. When we are stuck at the office with no radio/tv reception, this will really help.

No more live feeds from anywhere in the US.......the folks who make the commercials wanted to be paid triple the rate for the internet. Altho there were promises to make the feeds available again it seems that there has been no progress all these months.

I have spoken with the online producers at FNC and inquired about the broken links.

Their response was that local cable companies were complaining that their franchise rights were violated by the broadcast of a live feed over the internet. Rather than risk the network being pulled from local cable outlets the opted to end the live feed.

The producer was kind enough to give this link to me for use in time of crisis.

This fits the bill.

Happy to be of help.

I think Fox and the others stopped their live feeds because of bullying from the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, the major union representing the advertisement actors protested the lack of fees for the commercials that were being shown on the net. The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists also wanted fees for songs played on radio stations and tv and as a result more than a 100 radio stations pulled their streaming audio and videos.

As a result, four of the nation’s biggest commercial radio companies — Clear Channel Communications Inc., Citadel Broadcasting, Emmis Communications and Jefferson Pilot Communications — ended their real-time audio feeds. Clear Channel is the world’s largest private radio station operator with 1,300 stations.

In addition, the U.S. Copyright office agreed last year that payments are required, and broadcasters are appealing the decision.

I hear that.

"Live Video feed for those that can't SAY to be away from the action while ATE work."

Is this English? Reads like it's right out of the "All your base are belong to us" translation manual. Take no offense, I needed a good laugh.

Actually, the commercial issue arose after FNC had stopped their live web feeds. I imagine that the poster who stated that the reason was complaints from the local cabel outlets is on the mark. I enjoyed the free FNC but it was undercutting the cable TV people. At the time, however, in my area, the cabel TV did not carry FNC so I was out of luck for quite awhile. That omission has been rectified now, however.
