Republicans and Democrats Stream LIVE

obama.jpgTwo great events took place recently on Ustream.TV

First, Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama did his first official broadcast on Ustream. While Obama had appeared before in the context of the various debates that we’ve broadcast, this was the first time that his campaign officially used Ustream. As you can see, our broadcast was embedded in both Obama’s campaign Web site and MySpace page, and drew a nice
crowd.

Second, Ustream.TV is proud to announce conservative uber-blogger Michelle Malkin has decided to use Ustream to add live video to her online political channel, HotAir.com. A brief test with her and her co-founder chatting and munching on takeout from McDonalds quickly scored several hundred viewers, a figure which will be much higher once she begins to embed and promote on MichelleMalkin.com, which is one of the most read political blogs in the
world.

We continue to believe you will see more and more live streaming during the 2008 election cycle.
