Live8 To Be Shown In It's Entirety

See People Bitching Works
From @U2:

For all of you North American viewers who were disgusted by the MTV/VH1 coverage of the Live8 show - there's hope. After receiving a flood of complaints from viewers regarding the Live8 coverage, MTV/VH1 sent out a press release today announcing they will air 10 consecutive hours of Live 8 performances, free from commercial interruption, this Saturday July 9th. VH1 will start off the broadcast with the first five hours of the concert, which is scheduled to air from 10am-3pm ET/PT. MTV will then jump in and show an additional five hours, ending the broadcast at 8pm ET/PT. The president of MTVN Music Group, Van Toffler, was quoated as saying "At MTV and VH1, we're in a constant and candid dialogue with our audience. In the wake of our coverage last Saturday, our viewers have resoundingly told us on-line they want to see full performances from their favorite artists. As a result of viewer demand and thanks to the Live 8 organizers and performers, MTV & VH1 will air 10 consecutive hours from one of the most important musical events of our time." For everyone who took the time to send a note to MTV, pat yourself on the back - and set those TIVOs.

This is great news! I tried to watch the concerts on AOL once I realized the VH1/MTV coverage was absolute crap, but I couldn't get it to work really well. A lot of times it would just freeze up on me. I hate watching video footage on a two-inch screen anyway.

Each channel is supposedly showing 5 hours, with each channeling focusing more on the demographics of their audience. So VH1 would be playing the bands such as U2, Sting, Pink Floyd, etc., while MTV would be airing more of the performances by Green Day, etc. I thought that's what I read somewhere today, but too tired to track it down.

OK...this isn't quite on topic, but I glanced at this thread title and I thought it said "Live8 To Be Shown In Eternity" and I thought -- Yikes! Perhaps Bono really is God!

...think it's about time to get some sleep.

So far, VH-1's re-broadcast was GREAT !!

Watching MTV's re-broadcast now ... and it's really GOOD too !!

It's absolutely the best thing those networks could do ...

To show the entire broadcast all over and without those announcers or commercials !!
I'm happy to see VH-1 and MTV took our complaints seriously !!
