For my viewers who are not familiar with Meerkat:

What is Meerkat??

Meerkat is a new startup that has found a simple and captivating way to capitalize on our societies obsession with Live-Blogs, tweets and Instagramming of every major event. Meerkat, a desktop and (iOS app only right now) rose to popularity these last few weeks especially during the #SXSW15 event is Austin Texas. This new app allows you to easily live-stream video from your phone to Twitter, so your followers can watch and comment in real time..  read more here

Most Meerkat users are aware that the app offers an option to save their video streams on their mobile devices but does not save to YouTube for you.

There is an App available” Katch” that allows you to simplify the process of preserving your memories while passing off the storage and distribution concerns to YouTube’s servers.

By adding “#Katch” to your Meerkat video stream description, you’ll immediately alert Katch, which will then save your video, upload it to YouTube and then send you the link via your Meerkat comments.  read more here

We add  #Katch to our Meerkat Video Titles most of the time to capture our video for posterity.

Streaming the Oscars With My Verizon FiOS

Featured

Streaming the Oscars on VerizonFiOS

To live stream the Academy Awards, there’s a catch

You can access the live stream — of the pre-show, full ceremony and Jimmy Kimmel’s post-show — at Oscar.com, ABC.com, WatchABC.com and the Watch ABC app for Android and iOS if you reside in Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham or San Francisco.

Rosamund Pike Gone Girl

Live streaming is only available if you are a cable or satellite subscriber for any of these TV providers: Comcast, Cablevision, Cox Communications, Charter Communications, DISH, DirecTV, Midcontinent Communications, Verizon FiOS, Google Fiber or AT&T U-verse.

If you don’t pay for a TV subscription, you’re mostly out of luck when it comes to the main show. But you can at least enjoy free access to the Oscars red carpet and backstage cameras on the Academy’s website and ABC’s Facebook page.

Streaming The Oscars with Verizon FiOSAfter the ceremony airs live, the broadcast will be uploaded to Watch ABC for viewers to watch on demand for only three days. It will be taken down on Feb. 25.
