Ski films—or snowboard films for that matter—are for addicted skiers and snowboarders who can never get enough snow time, actual or virtual.
But, for the truly, profoundly addicted, two SkiTV websites allow ski and ride film viewing any time.
The Ski Club of Great Britain has launched the UK’s first dedicated snowsports Internet TV channel SkiTV.co.uk showcases some of the best ski and snowboard films on the internet and offers a wide range of inspirational programs.
Fresh information is uploaded every Monday, with weekly themes, such as “beginners’ week” in the Instruction section.
“As television and the Internet start to merge, users want to choose what they watch, when they want to watch it,” explains Betony Garner, the Club’s PR and Press Manager. “SkiTV.co.uk allows viewers to select films of their choice at any time of day or night.”
SkiTV.co.uk offers the extreme skiing, boarding action, snowsports events, instructional films, safety guides, resort guides, news and weather and environmental features. Viewers have unlimited viewing for an annual fee of £10. Ski Club members have unlimited viewing as part of their membership.
Ski Press TV
In partnership with the Egan Entertainment Network, Ski Press Media, Inc., offers Ski Press TV.com, claiming to provide consumers and industry pros access to “the biggest bank of winter sports video content and on-snow event coverage in the world.”
The Ski Press TV.com library includes everything from World Cup events and regional and national ski movie premieres to movie teasers, snowsports TV shows, international snow news and live on-hill content from around the world of skiing that includes free viewing and pay-per-view programming.
