Alsumaria TV loses 2 Journalists

Watching the brilliant programming on Alsumaria TV on JumpTV you wouldn't think about the 2 journalists that have gone missing in Iraq for the past 2 months. A lot has been written about those two misfortunes.  Let's just say that while the station continues to strive for the best Iraqi programming on TV, they often take great pride and go a long way in reporting the news about the Iraqi people.  The programming is exquisit and the station brand identity is by far superior to anything Iraqi that is on Television these days!  Please write back if you have any thoughts you would like to share regarding this matter.  To blog a bit more and sign the petition, please go on blogspirit to discuss further news about the missing young journalists - a subject that has proved to cut through very close to home for Iraqis everywhere...

Mark Cuban and why he's wrong

While I find you to be the consummate entrepreneur and enjoy your piece above, I think you might have missed a few points here. While I agree that there are at times high bandwidth costs associated with Internet TV and that ad sales might not make it a profitable business structure for some, there is more to online broadcasting than that specified revenue model you outline (MTVU and TOGA TV). I am the General Manager for Sub Sahara Africa for JumpTV (www.jumptv.com) so I feel that perhaps you haven’t completely seen the entire universe of online broadcasting. JumpTV is the world's leading company for live online delivery of TV networks from broadcasters around the world. These TV networks are available worldwide to viewers with a simple Internet browser and Media Player. We are continuously adding new TV networks to its selection of channels. Most of our channels are not available anywhere else in the world except for in their home country. So an Ethiopian student studying at Georgetown in D.C. can watch the news LIVE from Addis Ababa and stay in touch with what’s happening back home. I invite you, and others reading this comment, to check us out at www.jumptv.com. Maybe now the jealousy is creeping back? ::)
