KKTV live streaming results

Just talked with KKTV/Channel 11 news director Nick Matesi about the station's first-ever live streaming coverage over its Web site, The station provided live Internet coverage of Gov. Bill Owens' final state of the state address on Thursday.

"Our little test went flawlessly," Matesi said. "It was really cool. It sets the stage for a lot of possibilities in the future. When you have those types of events, but you don’t want to cut into programming, it’s a way to provide coverage."

A technical snafu prevented KKTV from recording Owens' speech to make it available to download later, but future live streams will be recorded and posted on the Web site.

Next up, KKTV will live stream its Broncos postgame show Saturday night and is planning to do the same for President Bush's State of the Union speech.
