What is Twitch?

"It's essentially the YouTube for live gaming: people broadcast themselves playing and/or talking about games while other people watch them (either live or via archived footage) while chatting about it."

(Stuart Dredge, 19 May 2014, Guardian Unlimited)

Mixcloud: joining the dots between radio shows, Podcasts and DJ mixes

"Quite simply, Mixcloud helps connect radio content to listeners more effectively. Mixcloud is re–thinking radio by joining the dots between radio shows, Podcasts and DJ mixes. We refer to them as Cloudcasts – audio shows that are stored in the 'cloud' and available to be streamed on–demand.

A Cloudcast is an extended audio show that is hosted in the 'cloud', in other words hosted somewhere centrally on the Internet rather than on your local hard–drive. Therefore, unlike Podcasts, Cloudcasts can be enjoyed via on–demand streaming without any waiting required. ...

Mixcloud is a legal platform for on–demand radio shows, Podcasts and DJ mixes which contain copyrighted music. The only licensing option available at present is a streaming format, and Mixcloud is committed to providing a legal option which supports artists and ensures they receive royalties for the shows and mixes which contain music. In addition, the site can keep track of what you (and your friends) listen to, so we can make better recommendations and provide a more personalised site tuned to exactly what you like to hear."

Open IPTV Forum: Content on Demand

"With traditional TV services, consumers are able to watch scheduled programs where the only interaction possible is the ability to change channels. IPTV not only allows users to interact with scheduled programs, such as voting with their remote control, but also provides Content on Demand, where users select content items they want to watch at a time of their choosing. The Content Guide can not only be customized by the user, but can also integrate scheduled programs and on–demand items. For example, this integration would allow users to search for the name of stars that they have seen on TV shows and find on–demand movies by the same actor that they could watch immediately. IPTV services connected to service providers on the Open Internet would not only allow users to search for content–related articles and blogs on the Internet, but also, for example, let users buy the same products, such as clothing or furniture, used by celebrities on TV programs. All these features could be provided without using any additional or dedicated device."
(Open IPTV Forum, 6 January 2009)
