From Boing Boing
Participatory Culture Foundation, a nonprofit devoted to making it easy for the general public to make, share, and see media using the Internet, has just launched a new site called Make Internet TV, a one-stop guide to making your own Internet TV.
This guide has step-by-step instructions for creating video feeds that can be easily subscribed to and have the potential to be watched by millions. Very soon, this site will feature short videos from experienced internet video publishers.

This is already done by MiTV Corporation Sdn Bhd is Malaysia's third pay television operator.After having obtained all the necessary approvals from the censorship board on its broadcast contents. The company is offering over 40 channels from content providers worldwide.

One of MiTV's distinguishing traits from Astro, another pay television operator in Malaysia, is that it utilises an Internet Protocol over Ultra High Frequency based transmission system. Subscribers require only to install a standard UHF television antenna instead of a satellite dish to receive broadcasts. As a result, some of Astro's major caveats, such as disruption of service under bad weather conditions, do not apply to MiTV users.

On 31 October 2006, the company announced a corporate and technology restructing exercise. The exercise included suspension of all marketing and new subscription activities. In addition, approximately 66% of the companies workforce was retrenched. 66 % of the company workforce that has been retrenched will only be given a 1 month salary payment upon their termination.
