de-streamed in Kuwait
Posted by adiamondinsunlight on April 25, 2007
Kuwait popped into my life again today, much to my surprise.
While looking into news of a recent censorship issue on Kuwait One, I came across the Kuwaiti Ministry of Information website.
I clicked through to it, expecting to find contact information for Ministry personnel and perhaps some additional information on the story I was following.
Instead, I saw a bit box running across the lower half of the page, with the text:
تم إيقاف خدمة بث قنوات الإذاعة والتلفزيون
حتى إشعار أخر
Audio & Video Streaming is stopped
until further notice
Is this true? Is it no longer possible to stream radio and television content over the internet in Kuwait?
Ohhh, these small Gulf countries and their large autocratic aspirations.
