Interactive Live TV on the PC - LiveStation

Imagine watching your live TV content at the desktop, at the airport, at home and in fact, anywhere one gets an Internet connection to their PC! Imagine a quality image with no buffering or stopping! Imagine the possibilities of being able to allow to 'click' on a TV advert exactly as they do on the web but while watching your existing TV channels.

Skinkers the market leader in push technology, unveiled LiveStation, a peer-to-peer Internet broadcast technology co-developed by Skinkers and Microsoft Research. LiveStation integrates Microsoft Silverlight (previously called “WPF/E”) with Skinker’s peer-to-peer (P2P) technologies to set a new standard for cost effective delivery of high-quality live video content.
LiveStation uses Silverlight to create a rich interactive user experience for live video delivery. The peer-to-peer approach ensures bandwidth usage is minimized and removes the need for powerful, expensive server farms to stream live TV shows and events.
