Industry Moves: Livestation Adds PlayStation Vet Deering To Board

Upstart live PC TV startup Livestation is adding former Sony (NYSE: SNE) Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) CEO Chris Deering to its advisory board, which also includes former CNN veteran Chris Cramer and former AOL (NYSE: TWX) Europe chief Philip Rowley. Deering founded Sony’s EMEA and Australasia PlayStation unit in 1995 and retired 10 years later, but has been sitting on Codemasters’ board. Livestation operates using Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) P2P technology that parent Skinkers bought from the computer giant’s Cambridge R&D lab in 2006 in exchange for giving Microsoft a 10 percent stake. It’s going up against the likes of Zattoo. Release. (Photo: Frank Boyd, some rights reserved).
