Bali Gets First Internet TV Station
SEMINYAK ~ An internet-based Bali television station was launched this week, providing people around the world with access to the best the island has to offer, the company behind the venture said.
The site offers various “channels,” including Villas, Spas, Clubs, Culture, Resorts and Food, and available for viewing this week were short interviews by presenter Leonie Naronah with head chef of Ku De Ta nightspot Phillip Davenport and Rahn Hall of Prana Spa.
The site also featured a brief tour of The Elysian villas.
â€œBali Alive is introducing Bali’s customs, tourism and businesses to the world via professionally produced television programming via the internet,â€ the station said in a statement.
It said production chief Chris Abbott and sales chief Jason Michael came up with the idea of Bali Alive after visiting Bali over a period of 20 years.
â€œWe found plenty of Bali information on sites featuring lots of inactive words and pictures. Having spent over eight years developing TV programs for the internet, we decided to use our skills to showcase Bali,” Abbott said.
The site also lists investment and real-estate information about Bali, but it was not available this week.
The statement invited requests for stories to be produced and aired by Bali Alive, however an email sent by The Bali Times requesting details, including possible fees, was not answered and phone calls went to mailboxes.
