In order to give people something to discuss in this new place, I want to know what content do you watch from online broadcast groups. If you don't know what they are, here is a list of a few of the ones I know of.
- TWiT is a tech orientated network, with around 24 shows such as This Week in Tech (for which the network is named) and Tech News Today, Windows Weekly, NSFW show (mostly having fun with tech) iFive, Ham Nation etc.
- Revision 3 was recently brought by Discovery Networks and features a random assortment of shows such as Scam School, Film Riot, HD Nation, Hak 5, Totally Rad show, Tekzilla etc.
- From the UK and now in partnership with BSkyB I believe, features shows like David Mitchell's Soapbox, Richard Hammonds' Tech Head and so on...
There are also some prolific groups on YouTube making content
- This is a group of individuals who play games (mostly Minecraft) who release many videos each week and have grown a strong fanbase which even caught the attention of the beeb! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-18767512
- One of the highest ranked YouTubers, this guy (who annoys me to no end) has a few shows he makes and has MANY subscribers
- This is mainly a couple of guys Ian and Anthony who make funny viral videos, as well as a weekly lunchtime video series as they eat lunch (my favourite of their videos), and occasional videos going through their fan mail. They currently have 1,669,988,040 Video views, and are in the top 5 rankings
- This is a very large group of individuals using Videogames and other computer technologies to make episodes and other story content and is also in the top 5 of YouTube content providers.
These are just some of the networks I have encountered and watch content from. I find myself watching this content much more than the content on television. And when I do watch TV content, its typically on iPlayer or downloaded so it really has changed what I watch, and how I watch.
If you know of content or content producers online you want to mention, lets start some discussion here!
