Pegasus Television Network just announced via a press release that is has launched channels in the top 200 television markets in the United States. Â The channels will be based on-line, but each market will have its own channel where they can not only broadcast their 24/7 live national webcast but also local, regional and national advertising, news and information.
A use of technology that PegasusTV is counting on is the new internet-capable televisions, dvd players, and set-top boxes. Â Through these, viewers will be able to view the horse-related content in a manner they are normally used to viewing TV and not tethered directly to a computer screen. Â “Building on emerging statistics that viewers actually prefer watching local news and advertising within their own communities as opposed to national news or ad content, PegasusTVÂ deliversÂ coast-to-coast, national footprint coverage while allowing for local customization.”
PegasusTV is currently broadcasting which a range of interesting programming. Â Their website, however, has a way to go. Â An ad in the upper-right corner of their home page prevents one from accessing the Sacramento page. Â Only after finding a page without any videos on the page was I able to access the Sacramento page. Â The page was broadcasting their national live feed. Â When clicking on the schedule for the local channel I was redirected to an error page. Â So while I have high hopes for PegasusTV, and they do have some content now that can be viewed, only time will tell if they are able to improve the site and make a real go of it.
Currently PegasusTV is free including a video library. Â However, there is a $3.95 per month “large screen, no adÂ subscription version”Â option in which you’ll receive “unlimited monthly access to the 24/7 Pegasus Television Network’s national channel plus [an] automatic 25% discount onÂ anyÂ DVD from JustHorseVideos.com with no limit on how many DVDsÂ you can buy each month.”
