UK's first Internet TV channel launched

The UK's first broadband television station, Worldart Media Television , has launched on the Internet.
WAM TV will transmit 24 hours a day, showing alternative arts and entertainment from around the globe. The Internet channel, which is only available via broadband or ISDN, has developed from the Edinburgh Festival Revue, which has been transmitting the Fringe in August every year since 1998 to a worldwide audience.
Paul Blyth, CEO at WAM TV, said: "It has taken many years for us to gather and produce over 5000 hours of original material. WAM TV is a great example of how new technology allows the distribution of television on a scale previously impossible. We are the UK's first internet TV station and I am sure this is the first of many. It gives the viewer a truly different approach to television".
