Sarah Austin, video blogger and founder of Pop17, announced today the launch of techku, a new 24/7 internet channel. techku will focus on original content in the technology space and combine live video with produced shows, and correspondent segments from around the globe. Utilizing the model of CurrentTV, techku hopes to be the first online technology news television network, featuring up-to-the-minute coverage and breaking news in real time. With support from Mogulus, techku will have their first broadcast to their global audience as they present live coverage from the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) from the Intel Corporation booth (#7153 in Central Hall) using Clear, the new powerful 4G WiMAX wireless broadband network provided by Clearwire and backed by Intel.

Using the Mogulus PRO studio, techku puts the power to broadcast into the hands of its users, including distribution, monetization, and branding. In addition, broadcasters have the option of going mobile using Qik.com for on-the-spot tech news and interviews. To start, the techku broadcast channel has a specialized team of known video and technology bloggers. Later, when the techku portal launches, the ability to broadcast will expand to any user, which will provide the unique broadcasting experience in conjunction with a new social media platform to technology enthusiasts worldwide.

"techku will leverage the star power of video broadcasters to empower the bright new faces of tomorrow through our professional broadcast channel," said Sarah Austin. Austin went from "small town geek" to internet entrepreneur in 2008 by blogging and broadcasting about online micro-celebrity. "Our channel features original content provided by international contributors with a proven track-record of millions of video views."
