Streams are long dead now, unfortunately the box which was saving them had also expired and lost the data and timestamps, i'd been hoping to catch the "final hours"
Looks like we had a power surge as a lot of stuff suddenly isn't working. drat. Time to ring insurance.

When it was alive it was on:

First link is active by flash player shows nothing, Second link (actual content) is now 404.

RIP Alt.

Even the website is gone now, just get an error message from the hosting company

*edit*

I just did a search on the Companies Office website for Alt TV Ltd

Liquidator was appointed on the 18th of March and a report issued today about them, I think its very fair now to say Alt TV: RIP

I'm a bit gutted really, they were quite a breath of fresh air on the airwaves and enjoyed some of their programming epecially in the early days when they had the 700k MMS streams off orcon.

I do have a small snippet of video that did make it across the servers before we must have had the powersurge from hell, contains about 5 music videos early in the morning on the 5th march.
