We have an update on last week’s exciting news about Heritage Broadcasting Service, the new streaming channel for shows about archaeology and cultural heritage.


Heritage Broadcasting Service, or just plain Heritage, is now available for subscription at heritageTAC.org, ahead of the formal January 1 launch date, as we push the site to a public environment for the purposes of testing and feedback.  Developed by nonprofit Archaeological Legacy Institute (that’s us, the people who created The Archaeology Channel at archaeologychannel.org), Heritage features more than 100 outstanding film titles from many countries on familiar subjects such as ancient Egypt, Stonehenge, Mesoamerica, and Peru, but also on diverse and rarer topics ranging from prehistoric astronomers to the only Japanese bombing of the US mainland in World War II.  Many more titles are in the pipeline.  Subscribers can watch all the shows now on their desktop computers, tablets and smartphones, as well as on smart TVs using Chromecast and similar devices.  Beginning January 4, it will be available on smart TVs with Roku as well as on their desktop computers, tablets and smartphones. See our short video about Heritage at https://youtu.be/e8md5evVUro.


Gift cards (at http://heritagetac.org/gift_cards/new) are available already for immediate redemption.  You can support this nonprofit service now by reserving gift cards as presents or even for yourself.


Please help us spread the word widely about Heritage!
