Transmission technology[edit | edit source]

All shows are streamed live, and when shows are not being streamed there are usually repeats of past shows, The Computer Chronicles, & movies.

Jupiter Broadcasting also uses social media such as an IRC channel[18] and Reddit.[19][20] The company encourages viewer interaction during live streams.

As of early 2017, all shows from the main JB1 studio are being streamed using Linux and open source technologies. All remaining proprietary software had been removed and replaced by free alternatives which according to Chris Fisher don't present any type of downgrade to the content's quality.[21]

Awards[edit | edit source]

  • Ask Noah, Linux Unplugged, and TechSNAP made it in the top 50 of VertitechIT's Best IT Podcasts: 50 Informative (and Entertaining) Shows for IT Pros. Ask Noah came in #3, Linux Unplugged #20, and TechSNAP #38.[23]
