I know the national radio has started to make past shows available for
but how often do you miss the key shows ..
Same with the TV Art shows that are on at weird times '
If these we collected and podcasted ' then you could watch / listen to
all of NZ
Arts based content in one sitting . without (irrelevant ads)
I think it's inevitable that most major media outlets will be providing
on-demand services in the next five years. Aside from Tivo/My Sky devices,
the BBC are making big steps in this direction in trying to make all their
radio and TV available online anytime within a week of original broadcast.
There's a bunch of programmes that Concert FM made with Richard Nunns, which
is peramantly available from the upgraded Radio NZ website (must actually
listen to it one day) and so it the Split Enz series, I think - probably
streamed rather than downloadable/podcastable. Now that I think of it, I
have noticed a few really lo-res TV items re-appearing on websites like
stuff.co.nz, or was that the xtra site?
But like you've said, what happens when the pipes start running out of room?
Excuse my naivety but is this possible? If everyone starts downloading video
content, will the world run out of bandwidth just like petrol?
1227 downloads of Speakeasy in 2 days .. ?!
Wow, that's impressive.
