San Francisco TV station Slings the news

I find this article and this idea obvious and had to happen sooner than later. This and the Ustream kind of broadcasts is really going to disturb the status quo of the broadcast media, at list in terms of the way you can do it.

“traditional” media is going to add this to their already big bag of tricks, but anyway this is not going to change the opened possibility for anyone to make a tv internet show with lots of not so expensive tricks 🙂

CNET News.com’s Erica Ogg visits CBS 5 in San Francisco to see how the newsroom is using a Slingbox to get live video feeds for traffic, weather and breaking news instead of relying on standard news vans using satellite signals.
