Second Life Cable Network Launches
SLOz (Australia’s Second Life news source) reports this week the anticipated launch of SLCN. The Second Life Cable Network.
The found and technical director of SLCN is Australian Gary Wisniewski.
“What is really exciting about the broadcast is that it will be streamed onto the web live at the same time as the event is taking place in-world. This means that for the very first time, people can view in-world events without needing to be there themselves”, says Wisniewski.
The first broadcast will be live from the Hoe Down Under (today) where Australian bands and performers will stage a virtual concert, sponsored by AUSTRADE’s Australian Music Office in Los Angeles.
Almost like a try before you buy! It’s a pretty interesting move and one that pushes the SL realm into a more realistic, accessible and lifelike environment.
So I wonder how long it’ll be before we begin to see episodes, documentaries or reality TV through SL? My bet – Is not that long at all.
