Coronation Court/ George chatting to the viewers
Coronation Court was the site of the UK's first Superchannel, involving tenants in producing shows about their lives, their homes and their community for global broadcast - from debates about the future of high-rise living to online, from campaigns for tenant rights to tea dances. More importantly than this, the Superchannel presents residents with a set of new media tools with which to maintain and develop their community links and to influence decision-making about their future.

Superchannel Studio Berlin

Superchannel is a network of local studios used by people and communities as a discussion forum, presentation medium and a physical gathering place. It is a tool that enables you to produce internet TV engaging users in the creation and evolution of content.
Superchannel started in 1999 at a time where interactive live streaming was far from commonplace. The first experiment was carried out at Artspace 1%, Copenhagen. The second studio opened in 2000 in Coronation Court, a tower block in Liverpool. Since then more than 30 studios opened in very different locations. While Superchannel stopped to be active in 2005, some of the studios, such as Tenantspin, continue to be active using other media platforms for production. Superchannel.org is a collaboration between SUPERFLEX and Sean Treadway.
