Livestation launches Apple iPhone streaming via Akamai Media Delivery
Livestation, a UK-based global provider of online broadcast content, has launched its streaming application, which allows live TV broadcasts to be sent to the new Apple iPhone using Akamai Media Delivery.
The Livestation technology puts broadcasters in direct contact with the users and generates revenue for them when the application is purchased from the iPhone App Store.
Livestation went live with its application in June with BBC World News as the first broadcaster pushing live content to viewers in 16 European countries. The Livestation service being used by BBC World News offers two quality streams: 96Kb/s on 3G/Edge and 300Kb/s on WiFi.
