Dear Maria, and others wondering about this,

To watch the Channel on broadband, you first need a broadband
connection (anything faster than a dial-up modem -- cable internet,
DSL, or an institution's T1 or greater) and Windows Media Player
plug-in (a free plug-in from Microsoft, with versions for both Mac
and PC). Then simply go to http://www.learner.org/ and click "watch
now." To find out when your program will be airing (since the
broadband is simulcast with the satellite channel) go to
http://www.learner.org/channelinfo.html?uid=168&sj=

More information about our broadband streaming is available at:
http://www.learner.org/broadband/faq.html

Sincerely,
Alison Reid
Annenberg Channel Webmaster
