New TV Channel - Floorball but...

The world's largest floorball magazine - innebandymagazinet - today opened up a new service. It is webb based TV galore via them at
It looks magnificent and is filled with clips and live streams from... well it seems like Sweden..

This is fully perfect and should have been done a long time ago. However you may always raise the question why this kind of media (moving images) is separated from images and text that stay with their regular site - but that is just our guts reflexion.

OK, if you dive into this, please notice a few things. Most of the material is sourced from other places like YouTube, Tango, TV4, Vimeo and so on.  Things are free - but not always so it is kind of a mess and weak standards/mixed interfaces. This means that you can not always find the embed code that handy if you want to use it - you must go to the specific source page. A solution built on YouTube like IFF's online channels seem to be 100 times easier for the blogger to work with. And if you use Google's own chromecast to watch TV on the big screen - only YouTube is supported..

Two thoughts come out from this:
A) It is incredible how the increase of Big Data eventually will provide us with so much Floorball that most likely we will see a couple of 24/7 channels one day that just constantly stream live games across the globe - not a bad idea huh?
B) We do not think TV will fill the recent twitter request for daily International top notch HighLights of the world's best scoring - as for instance the NHL is doing - so someone else has to fix that as we do support that request too.

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
