NEW LINK ANNOUNCEMENT AND DESCRIPTION:
WE NOW LINK YOU TO THE WORLD'S FIRST ALL MARITIME CONTENT TV AVAILABLE OVER YOUR COMPUTER 24/7.
Maritime TV.com brings you 24 / 7 video programming devoted entirely to naval and commercial maritime subjects. Many of the important on line and print trade journals that we link you to in our NEWS SERVICE are producing features on this service. There is an archive so if you missed a feature at air time there is a good probability that you will be able to find it and play it later.
HERE IS WHAT THE SERVICE HAS TO SAY ABOUT ITSELF:
"As a pioneering global Internet broadcasting and streaming media company, TV Worldwide (www.TVWorldwide.com) developed the first Internet TV network of community-based interactive channels, including Maritime TV (www.MaritimeTV.com) in 1999. Maritime TV is now the industry’s pre-eminent channel for live and archived webcasts and video presentations involving the commercial and military shipping industry. Programming on Maritime TV ranges from congressional hearings on important marine industry issues, to live interactive town hall and advocacy group meetings, to training on shipboard safety and operational fundamentals. Maritime entertainment-based programming is also available, including the entire collection of episodes from the renowned television series, ‘Victory at Sea’. Over time the channel has also evolved into a leading source of industry-specific information for media outlets in the mainstream press, such as USA Today. Maritime TV is pleased to serve this industry, so vital to the global economy, as the world’s first maritime TV channel"
While we love books and indeed earn our primary revenue by selling books we have always accepted as part of our mission to bring you all manner of maritime information, to serve as your single portal to the maritime world. We have reviewed this service and are pleased to recommend and link to it. Maritime TV is a not a paid advertiser at this time. Please keep in mind that we have little direct control of the advertisements that Google places between our posts, so if Maritime TV ever appears there, please note that we recommended it before we ever advertised it. We are very serious about our recommendations and conscious of the apparent conflicts that may arise at times when a publication that accepts a critical role in an industry accepts advertising, but advertising is the only way we can provide the service free of charge. So we exercise care and try to be up front about any apparent conflicts. We have had no contact with nor anticipate any contact with Maritime TV .com. We simply tuned in like any other viewer and recommend it as a source of general maritime information. We will be carrying this link near the top of our station identification and notice board posts daily as one of our half dozen or so key maritime links (OUR MARITIME PORTAL) that we suggest in the early stages of any maritime research.
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Visit the link below for complete system requirements we do know that the service may be utilized with a variety of browsers, we used Google Chrome with no problems, you of course need one of the later versions of windows, and media player but basically we didn't see any system requirements that most computers under 42 months of age don't have or are able to get on a free down load. But then again, despite being an Internet blog, we are far from Geeks. Give Maritime TV .com a try at:
