The Stream of Consciousness Online Television Network airs live, interactive shows every weeknight on the homepage of its website www.theStream.tv. Connecting live viewers to interesting guests and celebrities in the Los Angeles area is the main focus of many of the shows. These broadcasts are a true hybrid of simple webcam vlogs with a chat room and live, multi-camera switched television. Most viewers can’t even believe it’s actually live and interactive until someone on camera reads their screenname.
The programming line-up covers a variety of formats including simple talk shows, live band performances, and interactive contests where the live viewers can play along to win prizes such as video games, movies, energy drinks and even full gaming consoles. Most of theStream.tv shows focus on specific niche topics like film production, video game culture, politics, sports and entertainment news. Each episode is archived on the site for on-demand viewing. The live broadcasts are also syndicated on live, streaming video sites such as Justin.tv, Stickam.com, BlogTV.com and Ustream.tv.
