I will continue to mention this station/web site through November. Make sure you check them out but now they are looking for some help. Nearing its second anniversary as both “The First Internet Television Network That Works” and “The Prime Source for 24/7 Heavy Metal Programming,” Heavy Metal Television decided it was time to go to the fans instead of advertisers to make the viewing experience even better in Year Three. Says Heavy Metal Television founder Eric Braverman, “I’m launching this Fund Anything campaign beginning October 1 and ending November 1 to insure that this network remains on the net with minimal commercials, no pop up or banner ads. Part of the money raised will go to updating our gear to bring you faster, better streaming and to create more specialty shows.” If you still haven’t witnessed this metal miracle of science and headbanging, log onto http://heavymetaltelevision.com/jwplayer.html and see just how easily it comes up! There’s no need to log on, much less come up with yet another password. An honest-to-Lucifer live television station, streaming worldwide 24 hours a day—in hi-def video and hi-fi audio whenever available. And that’s the way he’d like to keep it and then make it even better, faster and STILL free!
