TheOldPath.TV’s live streaming page launches with Ustream.TV, Facebook
TheOldPath.TV launches on August 11 a new webcast page using UStream.TV and Facebook interactive chat that will regularly stream the live broadcast of Bro. Eliseo Soriano’s Bible Exposition and to reach users of these popular social media platforms, respectively.
The webcast page will be located at The Old Path Live with Facebook page.
TheOldPath.TV, the award-winning video streaming website of the Members Church of God International (MCGI), initially features live and archived videos of the episodes of Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path), Biblically Speaking, Truth in Focus, and Itanong Mo kay Soriano (Ask Soriano). In recent years, however, the organization reinforced its live streaming capabilities through TheOldPath.TV, and opened several video channels on Youtube.com in hopes of reaching to a wider audience and using the interactivity features of the popular video sharing site.
Bible Exposition, a symposium-like live event, is one of the signature bible study activities hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano. As the resource person and speaker, Bro. Soriano answers questions from live audience from a venue. With the aid of technology and the Internet, Bible Expositions are simultaneously held live on a scheduled venue and across other nations through live streaming.
Bro. Eli Soriano is the award-winning host of one of the Philippines’ longest-running religious program, Ang Dating Daan. Last February 2009, his blog site was awarded the Most Popular Website of the Year by the Philippine Web Awards, which is an annual competition for website excellence organized by the Media G8Way Co.
Facebook, a social utility online to connect people from everywhere, is now the leading social networking website with more than 132.1 million unique visitors since April last year, according to comScore. Two-year old UStream.TV, on the other hand, a popular site for lifecasting and live streaming of events, said it now have more than 1 million registered users who generate 1.5 million hours of live streamed content per month with over 10 million unique hits per month, according to a Businesswire.com report.
