First, let us thank Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja for inspiring us with the pure message of our guruvarga, especially the Gauravani, message of Sri Caitanya, coming in the line of Srila Rupa Gosvami (rupanuga).
Then let us thank our loyal subscribers who have supported us for the last year and a half. And then let us honor the heroic efforts of our small band of broadcasters to keep the broadcast up and running while constantly looking for ways to improve this service - like now. Please read on, dear reader.
Pure Bhakti Webcast and NOW ALSO AT http://pbwebcast.com (historial, defunct) -- featuring both live and pre-recorded lectures and harikatha festivals of Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja -- started with an internal group of subscribers in late December, 2002; made our first public announcement on VNN on February 19, 2003; and a year later, on February 4, 2004, upgraded to all video (making on-demand audio a free service at http://asksp.com/sp/portal/ ,historical, defunct).
We offered a single stream at one bitrate (28kbps), one video after another 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. While exciting, it was both time consuming for the devotees managing it and limiting to our subscribers: they only got to see the one video we were showing at any one time.
Now that has changed as of today: Aksaya Tritiya, April 22, 2004, the auspicious day for new beginnings.
For only US$12 per month, you can access and select from a HIGH QUALITY VIDEO ARCHIVE of lectures and bhajans of over 100 videos. (We will continue to broadcast LIVE where possible.)
You watch what you want, when you want!
And some with your choice of two speeds: regular modem (56kbps) and DSL (broadband). Eventually all will be available at both speeds.
And we are adding more each week. There are over 400 in our possession - and more are being uncovered and submitted every day from all over the world!
By the way, do you have any we could archive for the future of the world? Send us an email and well arrange and pay to have them shipped to us by registered, insured post, archived, and returned to you in any form you desire - original or copy of tape, VCD, or DVD. Free one year subscriptions for all donors of videos!
AND, you can try this for FREE for THREE DAYS!
Go to http://pbwebcast.com (historical, defunct).
Start your free trial period, NOW. If you like it, do nothing and you will automatically be subscribed for US$12 per month after the 3rd day with automatic renewals every month.
If you decide it isnt for you for whatever reason, unsubscribe at any time. (No refunds for partial months. Sorry.)
Looking forward to seeing you at the Pure Bhakti Webcast! Radhe Radhe!
