I’m a big fan of P2P live television service Livestation, and unlike many other sites we’ve covered them heavily. The service offers live television from a range of major providers, including BBC, Al Jazerra, France 24 and others. More recently, they added support for internet streams as a well, so it now offers CNN and others all from the same handy interface. I watched all the US Presidential debates from Livestation, and its my first port of call for anything I need live TV news coverage on.
We also have a nice Livestation story: Livestation picked up streaming of the Large Haldron Collider after I mentioned in a post that it would be great if they could, so they also listen, and continue to deliver.
The next stage in the development of Livestation is an iPhone client, which given they’ve only had a Mac client for less than a year is remarkable progress. The iPhone client will be officially demonstrated on Livestation live December 4 at 5pm GMT, or 9am PST. Unfortunately that’s 4am my time so I won’t be tuning in, but if you want to see the future of mobile TV, it’s a recommending viewing experience.
Here’s the preview video:
