Andrew Finlayson, news director at Fox News Chicago, dropped me (and I’m sure many others 🙂 ) an e-mail regarding a new project from a group of journalists in Chicago:
The concept is pretty simple you can watch streaming news footage from different TV stations live on the web.
You can choose to grab streaming from the US and around the world. I jumped straight to RTÉ and watched the incoming Irish government cabinet receiving their seals of office.
Good performance and quality (the streaming, not the cabinet 🙂 ), I also checked BBC World, Sky News UK, Sky News Australia.
Really interesting resource for tracking global news.
From their About page:
LiveNewsCameras.com brings together the resources of journalists around the world and makes live streaming video easy to find and use on your computer.
As of today, there are nearly 150 channels of live streaming video here – that number is growing every day.
You can preview what is on any given stream just by leaving the site open on your desktop – many of the thumbnail images will refresh automatically every minute or so.
