News Broadcasts

MSNBC Logo The Office of Information Technology is pleased to offer live MSNBC streaming webcasts. We desire to provide access to real-time news coverage to our faculty, staff and students who do not have access to TigerVideo cable or other media sources during the day. During a pilot period, lasting from April through June, 2002, OIT made available a number of concurrent streams of live MSNBC TV. After incorporating user feedback and monitoring network and system load to adjust streaming bitrates and encoding settings to provide the best user experience possible, we have decided to continue this service for the foreseeable future.

A short survey was initialy held in order to gauge interest in this service; here are its results:
Should this service continue beyond June 4, 2002?
Yes:95%
No:5%
 
Do you watch a TV news channel?
Regularly:54%
Sometimes:39%
Never:7%
 
Given this live broadcast, would you be more likely to keep up with the news?
Definitely:80%
Perhaps:16%
Probably Not:4%
