Biography Orfeo TV - Telestreet (Bologna, Italy)
Orfeo-Telestreet has distinguished itself by organizing audience campaigns against the monopoly position of the major television stations; people can make their own television programs. With the aid of mutual link-ups and co-operative efforts, the Telestreet projects achieve an optimum mixture of media technologies, based on both television and the Internet. This allows Telestreet to set up street television stations on a relatively small budget. In Italy, there are now about 250 mini television channels, each run by 10 to 15 people. With the aid of aerials on the roofs of houses, each station can broadcast to a radius of about 300 meters. If several aerials are linked together, it is possible to broadcast to a larger area.
