The Orion Party Web T.V.
This includes a serious case to make the licence fee history. To encourage people into the new technology , via a national computer renting scheme which is very detailed so people get exactly what they want e.g. Education Software , NetPhone , Games Equipment etc. The hardware and software for the individual user will be specifically configured to their exact wants and needs. The standard average payment for this will be about £10 a month. Land T.V. would be free. BBC 1 would be where BBC 1 & BBC 2 programmes would go, sponsored by company sponsored slots or the lottery and therefore would contain no advertisements. BBC 2 will be used to show internet pages for free and also to educate people into the new technology.
WEB T.V. would be paid via 2 methods. Access i.e. you dial up the programme number and you pay a certain amount. Also information could be paid for via integrated royalty software. So the longer you view , The more you pay. Each individual programme could have its own royalty rate, films etc. would cost more , ancient repeats hardly anything at all. You would know before viewing the programme / information how much it will cost you.
Music , Poetry , Visual Art , Museum Tours , Tutorial Assistance , Radio Broadcasts and Concerts , Plays etc. are just a small number of examples of beneficiaries to WEB T.V. It is a much fairer and better way to support a wider spectrum of media. And moreover the media can control itself , without interference of producers who think they know best, although with current evidence one is not so sure. And the viewer can watch a programme when it suits them and not miss any due to daft competition by current broadcasters where they put programmes of a similar nature at the same time as each other. So it is better value for money overall. You get a life. You can control what you see on T.V. rather than the T.V. controlling your life.
Examples of Web T.V. using current technology :
Links to information i.e. electronic news etc. :
I feel with a national renting scheme technology will move forward fast. e.g. The view screen area will more swiftly cover a wall, making it more possible to read broadsheet newspapers this way, at a font size large enough to be comfortable. And using headphone technology all members of a family can watch many programmes all on one screen together happily.

If you would like to have a link to your site from this page contact me. I would like to start up applicable advertising on each policy area. See what suits what you do. Once organisations start to fund link presence on site, these will be the only ones present, to be fair.
