Bahamas Local streaming live
For many people this year, the best seats for the Boxing Day Junkanoo Parade were at BahamasLocal.com, with live streaming as the latest tool in the BahamasLocal.com kit for putting The Bahamas and Bahamians on the World Wide Web.
Braving very cold weather, BahamasLocal.com put a team on Bay Street to send live sounds and video from the parade–the first live broadcast from BahamasLocal.com. Using an online messenger service, dozens of people wrote in with shout-outs, congratulations and a few bits of constructive criticism. The company described it as a success.
Then on January 2, BahamasLocal.com did the same with the Bahamas Association of Athletic Associations'(BAAA)Annual Awards Luncheon.
Streaming the Boxing Day Junkanoo parade proved that Bahamian events can have tremendous appeal. According to the company, more than 2,000 people from six countries watched Junkanoo on BahamasLocal.com. In all, 2,200 viewers from countries including Barbados, Jamaica, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States watched the Junkanoo parade from their computers.
Although representatives from the company shared that there were weather-related challenges to the streaming, the overall response to the project was positive and uplifting. They are planning more live streaming projects for the future.
