I dropped in on the UK channel martialartstv.com, an innovative channel set up for fans of the martial arts. Here you will find a whole lot of streamed content, downloads for your phone etc. The channel is simple in design but is a great example of a niche making its mark in the online world. OK OK I know the the martial arts are pretty huge so perhaps to describe it as a niche is an understatement, but this is a young channel providing a host of programmes, interviews, documentaries, a great library and of course fights galore, everything from Sanjuro to hard core Thai. The movie section is a little disappointing with just a Bruce Lee biopic and the truly dreadful UK movie Draining Lizards. With the wealth of classic cinematic material out there it is a shame that this all that is offered - or is it that it just a nightmare obtaining the necessary liscences? It would also be great if the channel shared its programming, I would have loved to paste a little window here.
Enough of my negativity! MartialartsTV does what it does with aplomb and if the martial arts are your thing then this is the place to be.
And they want your material so if you are that way inclined get writing, get fighting, get filming!
