NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 4, 2009) - earth television network today announced the official North American launch of its website, earthTV.com, allowing visitors to experience near-to-live camera feeds from more than 60 worldwide locations on five continents. earthTV also reaches more than 2 billion television viewers globally by providing live programming to over 50 TV networks in over 200 countries, including The Weather Channel, NHK and Sky TV, their most popular show being THE WORLD LIVE.

earthTV.com provides real-time weather and geographical information for all camera locations, as well as individual video links and embed codes for third-party websites to post the camera feeds.
