Watch the FIRS Inline Hockey World Championships Online Free TV

If you want to see some mad skills by human shelties focused on chasing the moving object, check out the world championships of inline hockey live online. As we've discussed variously, USA cable television seems not to want to show many sports, no matter what they say. They'd rather show whatever gets rankings of course, and is cheap to produce. Some sports jealously guard the rights to their programming, making sure no one in the USA at least can see it. Others realize they need to let people see it to enjoy it (or not) and to build some demand (or not) for watching their sport.

So here's a link:

Watch Hours of Free Internet TV Speed Skating (Long Track and Short) On Demand and Live with Highlights and Recaps

Oh I am so sorry I didn't look this up before, even when I saw press releases earlier this year. I just never quite got to it until now. But now is good too. If you wish you could see long track and short track ISU world cup events on your television, well you might sometimes, but on your computer, you can see many hours of video from this year's world cup season in both track formats. I've only watched a bit but it looks and sounds and feels great!

Open Letter to UNC-TV Regarding Over-the-Air UNC-KD UNC-ED Public Television Broadcast Changes September 2008

I watch free TV, meaning I have an antenna (up in the attic no less, as I'm not sure I want to attract lightning, deal with installation woes, and risk the oak trees damaging the antenna when limbs land on the roof). I receive digital broadcasts, and don't pay for cable television (but do for internet). On good days I can get programming I would not get on cable, including broadcasts from Durham, Raleigh, Roanoke and more. Some days, however, I admit I have trouble getting WXII in Winston-Salem, or WUNC-TV from Chapel Hill or Winston-Salem.

Watch Tour de Georgia Cycling Video and GPS Tracking Free Online

Wow. Really great stuff and sorry to be late on this with the Eddy workshop and guests coming to town, but over time, free internet video and the Tour de Georgia are both getting cooler. As I had to keep telling myself last weekend, I can't leave town right now with lots to do and some of it requiring me to be here, so I will have to enjoy this opportunity from afar it seems. If anyone thinks they want to get a carpool together later in the week, let me know (I know I'm dreamin').

Great Free Public Radio Website NPR PRI APR BBC CBC C-SPAN TV Podcasts

When you're on the road, or even at the local wifi spot, sometimes you can't get the radio programs you are used to. WABE is a fine radio station, but it drives me crazy not to have some of the great programs WUNC and WFDD offer during the middle of the day. And sometimes you might want to follow events in, say, Iowa or New Hampshire (bless your pitiful heart), or Britain or Canada. Maybe you just want to hear some music flavored with curry. Maybe you're silly enough to seek out C-SPAN live over iptv! Maybe you miss University of Michigan TV?

Well for some time I've relied on
