Seattle Wireless TV was created by Peter Yorke and Michael Pierce in July of 2003. Episodes covered various happenings within the Seattle Wireless community, which aimed at offering free wireless internet access in the area. Lasting only seven episodes, the series finished in June 2004. It is notable that SWTV can be credited as one of the first iptv shows because of how early it was produced.


Seattle Wireless TV — July 2003

On this month’s show, Peter and Michael report on the wireless project called “SnowNet” a project where Casey Halverson plans to use mountain tops to connect communities via a 802.11b backbone. We then check out the first link connected to SnowNet. “TacomaNode” located in Tacoma, Wa, it will connect to Seattle via a wireless backbone through SnowNet. Scott Kennedy, the owner of the Drinkmore Caf?, tells us why he has decided to provide free WiFi to his customers while other places charge. And finally we had a chance to try out a new linux embedded product called the “Prismiq MediaPlayer”. Using this device you no longer have to watch your media files on your small computer monitor. Using a wireless card it can hook up to your network anywhere.
