Create Your Own Online Worldwide TV Channel

New free tools are here for Mac users and will be available soon for Windows that will allow anyone to build a worldwide, or community based, Internet TV channel. This from a Boston Phoenix article :

Worcester’s Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF), a small cadre of young activists and programmers, … has developed an open-source, nonprofit Internet TV platform that looks to draw the average viewer into this brave new world. Called DTV … it’s an intuitive, user-friendly way to find free online video, subscribe to daily video feeds, organize your video library, and, importantly, publish your own video content. It’s a significant development in online television, and the first major step in the PCF’s grand mission to “create an independent, creative, engaging, and meritocratic TV system for millions of people around the world.”

The article adds:

If you yourself are a vlogger, or the star of your own reality show, or a political group that wants to host video on your home page, the DTV makes it easy to do so. Their separately downloadable Broadcast Machine software (they hope soon to integrate its functionality into DTV itself) makes posting regular video content — becoming, in effect, another channel on DTV — as easy as posting to a blog
