C-SPAN to Authenticate TV Streaming

Publish date:

C-SPAN is migrating the live online feeds of its public affairs programming to an authenticated TV Everywhere model. Going forward, online, live access to C-SPAN’s three television channels (C-SPAN 1, 2 and 3) will be available only to verified customers of C-SPAN’s cable and satellite TV affiliates. C-SPAN-produced programing on those TV channels will be available to all web users on demand in the C-SPAN video library, which includes more than 200,000 hours of content. Essentially all the programming will still be available free online to everyone, just not aggregated in the form of the live, linear TV channels.

Those who want to stream the live feeds of the TV channels will be asked to enter their cable or satellite provider credentials to access that stream.

“Requiring verification for the live feeds of our three cable channels reserves these channels for customers who are supporting them through their monthly cable or satellite bills,” according to the network’s web site in a FAQ post. “Over time, this policy will enhance what we can provide the general public overall, and helps preserve the important public service mission which guides all C-SPAN operations.”
