LIVE EARTH Announces their TV Partner

     January 28, 2016

Live Earth: The Concerts for a Climate in Crisis, which is being performed all over the world on July 7th, has found a television partner and I couldn’t be happier. The reason? Universal HD.< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Yes, anyone who gets the channel will be able to watch the concerts all day long, from all over the world, in perfect High Definition!

The last time there was a big concert performed all over the world – Live 8, two years ago – MTV tried to cover the event and it was a fiasco. I still remember during the Pink Floyd performance MTV cut away from the stage to their “VJ’s” and had them talk about how amazing it was rather than focus on the music and the fans.

With Live Earth partnering up with NBC Universal,I think it’s safe to say we’re going to get great coverage of the event and not listen to commentators talk over the performances.

And if you don’t have HD there is no reason to panic, the NBC Universal conglomerate will be running the concerts all across their networks like NBC, Bravo, the Sundance Channel, CNBC and MSNBC. More info is below, including a list of some of the performers.

And here is the link to the official website.

Universal HD to Air Concerts Live In High Definition All Day
