BTV, live stream just got easier to see

Sharp-eyed viewers of the city’s website, that archive of All Things Biloxi, may have noticed the addition of two new icons at the top right of the page.

The BTV icon now makes it easier to get to the online simulcast of BTV, the city’s municipal channel also carried by Sparklight and AT&T UVerse, and the “LIVE” icon is a link to a new live stream dedicated to City Council meetings and other events the city may choose to stream live on YouTube. In fact, the City Council meeting today will be streamed live at 1:30 p.m.

Previously, the city used the Lighthouse stream for public meetings, interrupting the live feed from the Lighthouse, which is used regularly by local TV stations and The Weather Channel to give audiences a view of the Biloxi beachfront in realtime.

The Lighthouse cam continues to be accessed by clicking on the lighthouse at the top left of the city’s website.

The YouTube channels and BTV simulcast are maintained by the city’s Information Systems Division.

City Council meetings are live steamed by the city on the new YouTube channel and are replayed later on BTV. An archive of council meetings is accessible 24/7 on the city’s existing YouTube channel.
