We’re almost there.
The official launch date is now tentatively set for October 13, 2009.
So what has happened recently?
We’ve managed to gather a set of software components that will allow us to launch a minimum service, including the possibility of a regularly scheduled television show. We’ve also found at least two separate computer equipment suppliers who can satisfy the channel’s initial hardware requirements. Even the choice of a datacenter and Internet service provider are very close to be finalized.
It’s not certain at this time if this launch will include the live television broadcast component, but it will definitely include the live Internet streaming component which will be satisfactory as a proof of concept.
