More EU “web streaming services”

In our excitement about Europarl TV, we missed the re-launch of the EPP-ED internet video station at It is a slick new platform.

As the EPP-ED points out in its press release, “EPP-ED TV first broadcast via the internet in June 2007”, making it the old man on the block as it just beat the Commission’s EUTube out of the blocks.

The Socialists and ALDE group have not progressed from providing the infrequent link to a YouTube video of an MEP’s speech or a scintillating press conference.

The Commission’s EU Tube continues to churn out slightly humorous, professionally-produced videos with racy-for-a-governmental-organisation sexual references. Last Wednesday, Make Love, Not CO2 joined the list. In just 33 seconds, one learns that turning off the TV when not in the room, taking showers instead of baths, towel-drying instead of blow-drying hair, covering pots with lids, riding bikes instead of driving SUVs, enjoying quiet candle-lit ambiance instead of blasting music leads to… a nice romantic dinner instead of a date leaving in frustration.
