France 24 TV channel launches on the internet

France 24 (similar to BBC News 24) has just launched on the internet, offering live streamed 24 hour international news in English, French and Arabic.

Earlier tonight (when the news was on) the same item was being simultaneously broadcast in English and French so it gave a good opportunity to practice my French by trying to follow what the news items were about. I tried watching both the English and French news streams in two different Firefox tabs and managed to completely crash my PC with a blue screen of death! At the time I tried the Arabic channel wasn't broadcasting.

An interview is on right now and is only being broadcast in French (on all three feeds).

The full France 24's website is due to be launched tomorrow evening (8th December); right now there's just the TV feed being broadcast.
