Sorry but couldn’t find an appropriate thread.

I think we’ve been using the crowded streaming market thread - probably time to give it a thread of its own.

More than likely will come to Australia you’d think since Haunt TV is already on 10 Play and 7+.

ABC iView now has 4 live streams. Not really FAST as there’s no advertising.

In addition to the five SBS TV stations, they also have a video stream for SBS Chill. Not ad supported either I guess.

The word to describe those live streams is IPTV channels.

NBC / Telemundo just launched 15 local news/FAST streaming channels in the US.

This is on top of the 15 or so local 24/7 streaming/fast news channels that CBS already runs. I don’t think ABC has any.

Canada also has abouut a dozen - with Toronto alone having three 24/7 LOCAL fast / streaming channels.

Markets down to about 3 million in the US now have 24/7 local news FAST/streaming channels. These things are not that complex or expensive to set up anymore.

We must be getting to the point in the 18 months ahead where Seven or Nine launch at least a national one.

I thought Ticker News was a streaming FAST Aussie news channel?

Why bother with a dozen crappy news channels that no one will bother watching where we have ABC News, Ticker, Sky News and all the international news channels like BBC, CNN, MSNBC etc.
