Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Herbert Becker, the Jeff Busby of Internet television...
"More immediately, a controversial start-up service called Icravetvi plans to launch a low-budget Web broadcasting network June 1 using new technology that lets TV networks put their signals directly on the Internet.
"We have a deal with BBC-TV to broadcast their content online," Herbert Becker, chief executive of Icravetvi owner EnterVision Inc., said in a webcam interview from his office in Montreal. "We have signed a contract with John Daily, a producer who owns a video library to give us access to 600 pieces of content, including the 'I Love Lucy' series. We will have a lot of other broadcasts available at launch."
An earlier incarnation by one of Becker's associates was shut down last year by angry TV stations, and the legal status of the new venture remains unclear.
