About the Video Feed

Welcome to the Friday Night Tech live video feed.

This live feed enables you to watch the show in progress. Using multiple studio cameras and a high quality audio feed to add in you can enjoy watching us flail and act like idiots, live.

Despite having this live video feed we’re still are a radio show though. It’s not necessary to use this feed in order to enjoy what we’re really all about. That’s where our audio stream comes in.

Don’t have enough internet bandwidth? No problem for the MP3 feed. But hey, got the extra tube space? Like watching us humiliate ourselves? Enjoy.
