LONDON – Livestation, an aggregation site for linnear satellite and cable news channels, has introduced a means to “time shift” viewing in a sort of DVR-type scenario, explains Lippe Oosterhof of the London-based company.

Earlier this month, the company announced that this utility to view and share “live” video would be used for the Al Jazeera English language Web channel.

At the Beet.TV Video Journalism Summit at the Financial Times, Oosterhof explains the opportunities to greatly increase viewing of linear programming by creating distinct clips and sharing them via Facebook and Twitter.

The technology driving the time-shifting on Livestation has been created by a small San Francisco-based SnappyTV.
