This is a new project I'm working on.

The objective is to create a "tv channel" oriented to communist viewers, yet open minded and not sectarian. As an international channel, its programming will be in english and spanish. Should any collaborator provide and any other language, better.

So far it's a mere stream of videos of speeches, movies, music and propaganda of soviet times and about the revolution around the world. There are things in english and spanish, while there's a constant ticker with news from leftist news sites.

It has been made in a site that allows to make live tv shows through internet. The idea is to make a weekly news show in english and in spanish about the revolutionary movements across the globe. If this goes well, many talk shows can be added later.

If anyone is interested, I'm looking for people willing to make this news show, a director and an anchorman/woman, material to add to the streaming playlist or any kind of help you'd like to give. If you like to work alone, you can ask for a time slot for your show. Of course, this is all for free, for the cause! I'm not making a buck out of it and I don't know how to do it either...

Just PM me if you're interested

You can view the "channel" here: http://www.mogulus.com/sovietv
Feel free to add the player to your blog/website if you like, and make the audience bigger.
Thank you!

I cant steam it fast enough and my connection isnt particuarly slow. What exactly is the purpose of a live "channel" anyway? Wouldn't it make more sense to make a series of downloadable videos on your site and made available from sites with more bandwidth like Youtube and such?

I have a pretty fast connection and even I have trouble with it buffering and whatnot. It is a good idea though.

This is a great idea Che!

It seems to be working okay on my end, but it still gets a bit jumpy at times.

Thank you all for your support. I'm still looking for good quality videos to add to the playlist.
The server is slow and jumpy, but it allows the scolling news on the lower side of the screen, which I like.
They claim they'll make it faster with newer releases, so I hope it will be better.

Well, there's Battleship Potemkin and October playing.
Now there's a video on demand option, you can see them there.
If you have more links to movies I can add, please send them to me. But the important thing is that they have a revolutionary message, not just any film made during the soviet era.
I'll be adding some speeches, as soon as I can make the subtitles.

Very cool! Is mine not loading properly, because all I see is a Soviet Propaganda poster with a sickle and hammer.

Can you stream Youtube videos from there?

I have some useful stuff, but I think most of its on youtube. Just let me know how I can contribute and I'll help out the channel.

Brilliant.

I used to own one of these stations on Mogulus.
It was all on current world wide news.

Soviet TV is going under reform.
The original idea was to make a weekly news program. But now I'm considering making it into a sort of analytical newspaper and have the video as a way to remember how life was in the USSR. So there would be articles analyzing the current communist movement, news from several left groups and the videochannel.
The idea of the video channel would be more in spreading communist values than in nostalgy or military praising of the USSR.

You can help me in any way you want. I'll be needing reliable news sources, original articles and videos of all kinds. But keep in mind I want to make it with a professional look and serious journalism. If you want to send me your articles in english, I'll be glad to translate them into spanish so as to publish it in both languages.

There's a draft of the place at http://www.soviettv.com.ar

So no military parade type videos? I only ask because I know of a few which are done quite well and tastefully.
