Online Western Entertainment Network Streams Satellite-Quality Video and Audio Programming

Gold Buckle Network™ ( is at the forefront of the movement toward media convergence. The rapid growth of broadband and wireless Internet access and the diverse connectivity of modern television displays have enabled hundreds of millions of people worldwide to watch and listen to streaming digital video and audio over the Internet. Today, Gold Buckle Network’s (GBN) Internet-based entertainment network offers programming that rivals the quality of a satellite television broadcast.

GBN streams digital satellite-quality video over the Internet to a worldwide audience. At up to 1.5 megabits per second, exclusive GBN video content is streamed at the same rate as a DVD or a satellite television broadcast. GBN streams its entire content library at lower broadband rates as well, so all broadband Internet users enjoy high-quality digital video on their computers and digital television displays.

GBN has helped popularize Internet-based multimedia entertainment since mid-2004. Leveraging its media streaming technology and building a large content library, GBN has rapidly become the leading online network for the American West. GBN offers viewers hundreds of hours of Western movies, bull riding, documentaries, kids’ shows, music and more, all available anytime.

“Gold Buckle Network is at the center of the multimedia convergence taking place across the globe today,” said GBN President Christopher F. Hill. “Now that broadband Internet access is common and television displays offer diverse connectivity, it just doesn’t matter anymore how the content reaches your TV, whether from an antenna, a satellite, a coaxial cable, or the Internet.”

GBN content is portable and on-demand. Western enthusiasts watch their favorite GBN shows and listen to music from any computer with Internet access. In addition, the GBN library of Western video and audio entertainment is available on demand, allowing viewers to watch content when they want, as well as pause, rewind, and fast-forward through any title.
