Norwegian broadcaster NRK to broadcast Eurovision Song Contest with Bambuser

The Norwegian delegate will in collaboration with NRK cover their Eurovision journey, starting today and lasting through the competition ending on Sunday 30th of May. The viewers can follow all the behind the scene action, follow their daily lives up until the final. We are of course happy to see bambuser being used in the coverage of the event as wikipedia states -
"The Contest has been broadcast every year since its inauguration in 1956 and is one of the longest-running television programmes in the world. It is also one of the most-watched non-sporting events in the world, with audience figures having been quoted in recent years as anything between 100 million and 600 million internationally."

Follow the action (in norwegian)

Check in on Foursquare with a Live video

At the Bambuser offices we love live streaming and we love checking in to places. We've heard that there are quite a few of you who fancy that as well... Therefore it was quite a no-brainer to merge two cool things into one. Starting from today you can connect your Foursquare account with your Bambuser account (go to your dashboard -> settings -> share -> and connect to Foursquare). Next time you fire up a live broadcast from the Bambuser mobile app, you will have the option to share the broadcast on Foursquare and check in on the venue you're at. If you've connected your Foursquare account to for example Facebook it will be posted on Facebook as well. Neat, right?

Try it out and let us know what you think!
