1stweather.com and myforecast.co.uk are to integrate earthTV’s revolutionary webTV-player into their websites. The weather sites – the consumer sites of b2b weather information specialist CustomWeather – will now have access to broadcast footage from earthTV’s 70+ broadcast quality cameras that circle the globe. These cameras allows 1stweather.com and myforecast.co.uk to plug into live pictures from cities, ocean shores, mountains, and lakesides from London, to Lagazuoi, Honolulu to Hamburg, Sydney to Stuttgart, and from Dusseldorf to Durban. The partnership, which encompasses broadcasting, mobile, and web platforms, will allow both parties to share revenue from advertising carried on the webplayer.
Munich Headquartered earthTV.com – daughter company of the Telcast Media Group – has long pioneered cutting-edge technology with global broadcasting and web development. Florian Lormes, earthTV’s director of sales and marketing and deputy head of new media, said of the new contract: “1stweather.com and myforecast.co.uk are outstanding consumer web sites. They offer users unmatched guidance and up-to-the-moment weather information on a local, regional, national, and global level.
