Xtra to bring Hero Parade live to Web
- 10 February, 1999 22:00
Can't make tomorrow night's Hero Parade up Ponsonby Road? No problem.
Xtra will be operating a WebCam to cover the parade as it happens.
The parade starts at 8.30pm (NZDT) when Prime Minister Jenny Shipley cuts the ribbon with the assistance of the Opposition leader Helen Clark and Alliance deputy leader Sandra Lee. With the party that has traditionally followed the parade now shifted to the following weekend, crowds are expected to be larger than ever.
Xtra's Hero Web Camera will deliver an image to the ISP's Hero Site every 30 seconds. The site is at http://www.xtra.co.nz/hero/
