Low viewing figures for Council webcasts

The Isles of Scilly have decided not to renew their £14,674 annual video webcasting contract due to very poor viewing figures. Based on figures for the last 6 months of operation the Council has received, on average, 1.4 live viewers per meeting and 6.7 viewers of archived footage.

In our view, the cost and intrusion and disruption caused by video webcasting can seldom be justified.
