Report to NABO Delegates:  Reno, July 2009

EITB has finally settled on using the Adobe Flash Player to reproduce their TV programs on the internet. If you don't have the Adobe Flashe Player installed in your computer, you can down load the program from the following link:   This link takes you to the download page and should have the correct version for your operating system selected to download and install it. If it is not correct, select your operating system from the same page and follow the instructions to install it.

When you select the link to watch Canal Vasco or ETB Sat, a small window opens up with the image. To see the image in full screen, click the button that appears below and left of the image. To exit full screen, click the ESC key on the keyboard.

The links for the televisions and radios appear at the lower part of the first page of  

You can find the programming guides for Canal Vasco and ETB Sat for the current day and two more days in advance as follows: Click on the Television tab, select either Canal Vasco or ETB Sat. In the page that opens up, select the Programming, Programacion tab depending on the language you are using. The times given on the programming guides are Euskadi times and you have to figure the time difference between your time zone and Euskadi. Keep in mind that ETB Sat programming on the internet is what is being shown in Europe at that moment via satellite. The majority of the pelota games are shown live on ETB Sat. Some of the games are also shown on Canal Vasco. Besides pelota games, there is a lot of interesting information and news available on both channels. Also, don't forget the five radio stations from, both in Spanish or Euskera. The page shows a lot of video clips and news. To see Canal Vasco and ETB Sat it is necessary to have a high speed internet connection.

Since EITB made the change in March to use the Adobe Flash Player to reproduce their programs on the web, they have had many problems. I have made many phone calls and sent some e-mails to alert them of the problems that I was seeing here, which many times they were unaware of the problem. There are still some problems from time to time. Sometimes the program locks up and it is necessary to stop and restart again.

Thank you very much.
