‘Cambridge’s iPlayer’ Launched
Cambridge has launched its own version of BBC iPlayer, with shows like Cambridge Come Dine With Me
As of last night Cambridge has its very own TV station and students are more than welcome to get involved.
CU:TV had its launch party at Ta Bouche yesterday.
This is a new venture for Cambridge. The President of CU:TV Alana Hutton-Shaw, a third year undergrad from Homerton, told the Tab:"Following the success of the TAB it was clear that Cambridge was ready to move into the 21st century in terms of media access."
"Loads of other universities have functioning TV stations,and with so many fascinating people coming in and out of the college doors, loads of talent performing on the Cambridge stages, and shed loads of other thing that need to be given film time CU:TV had to be the next step."
Alana's first step, with the help of her team, was to sort out the website as the station will be predominantly web-based and offer a wide range of on demand programmes like BBC iPlayer.
Professional TV Producer Julian Dismore has been on hand to help the CU:TV team to provide quality entertainment for Cambridge's student body.
Students will be able to battle their friends in the kitchen in Cambridge Come Dine With Me, win a veritable fortune in Who Wants to be a Hundredaire? and even see their favourite Cambridge sports' personalities on screen in a Question of Sport.
The website also promises a world exclusive of Cambridge based boy band Blueprint's new music video.

The Tab can't help but wonder with the media storm surrounding Tab Totty whether we'll ever have Cambridge's answer to Babe Station? We can but dream.
