Chaos Delivers Radio and TV Content

Online music services provider ChaosMusic has launched two new online entertainment services in a move to accommodate anticipation the convergence of digital media delivery technologies in Australia.

ChaosVision and ChaosRadio will provide on-demand streaming entertainment by using the Microsoft MP3 player to deliver content through the ChaosMusic portal.

The two channels will initially be made available free of charge to ChaosMusic members from June, and through a combination of resources with Groove FM, Kgrind, the OzWorld Network and take40.com, the sites will showcase Australian entertainment content internationally.

ChaosVision will feature a music video clip channel, a visual arts and multimedia channel, a live concert and festival channel and the Kgrind extreme sports and alternative music channels.

ChaosRadio will operate as an online radio tuner and plans to develop a 'click to buy' online purchasing facility for users in the future.

ChaosMusic chief executive officer Rob Appel said the launch of the two new content channels marked the company's first step towards the delivery of music entertainment to the merging digital media markets.

"ChaosMusic and ChaosVision will commence operations in the narrow-band environment of the Internet but as higher bandwidth alternatives become more popular these two services will be even more relevant. They will further expand global promotional opportunities for Australian music," said Appel.
