Hamaika Telebista´s jump to the net

Hamaika Telebista is a TV channel created in the Basque Country a few years ago, and,  since the own countries products must be preserved, so do news media. For this reason, Hamaika Telebista is now expanding on the net.

“Mientras Internet aparece en la televisión, también se acelera un doble movimiento en sentido contrario. Por un lado, la Red se abre a las cadenas de televisión existentes y, por otro, a “cadenas Web”—es decir, creadas exclusivamente para ella.” (Francis Balle and Sophie Boukari)

So apart from creating a TV channel, Hamaika Telebista has opened its way thanks to the use of the net and its tools such as social webs or microblogs:
