Tiger Woods has dominated internet and newspapers for all the wrong reasons over the past couple of months. And now, for the first time after the scandal broke out, Tiger Woods will be holding a press conference early morning today when he’ll confront the public and apologize for his string of affairs that tarnished both his image as a role model and his endorsement earnings.
This is not of any major interest for us which deserves a post, but rather it is about YouTube streaming Tiger Woods press conference live online. This is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, it’s going to get a lot of traffic, as many people will be at work and won’t be able to watch the conference from their TV sets. But it’s also another live video feed on YouTube, which historically has almost exclusively featured recorded content. Remember, few days back YouTube announced a major deal with IPL, where in IPL 2010 cricket matches will be streamed live on YouTube!
Not just the sporting events, YouTube has tried live feeds for U2’s show as well as Obama’s speech recently. But their decision to live stream Tiger Woods’s press conference is a bit surprising. Though it is newsworthy, it’s more of a gossip than sports news, I would say more of TMZ kind of event. I believe Youtube will venture into live feeds more and more in coming days, though the recorded video content will remain as their primary business.
