Thanks to a tip from VOA's Steve Herman, I'm watching live video stream of TVN in Chile. This is using an Acer Aspire Revo mini-pc fed via HDMI cable to the family's HDTV, resulting in AD (adequate definition) rather than HD (high definition) video from the scene, but remarkable nevertheless. Commentary is in Spanish, as TVN is a domestic station. The correspondents, anchors, and camera-persons are doing an excellent job. I'm an old shortwave enthusiast, but shortwave was rarely as good as this for "news as it happens." Wishing the people of Chile a speedy recovery.
