View Full Version : Live 8 on TV in America

06-30-2005, 06:12 PM
Can anybody tell me if Live 8 is going to be on TV in America (either broadcast or pay-per-view)? I keep expecting to see it advertised to be broadcast, but I haven't, and I've looked around the internet, and only learned that BBC is going to broadcast it, but I don't get that channel here in America.

I'm most interested in knowing when and if Pink Floyd's set will be televised in America.

If you have access to Canadian TV, CTV will broadcast it starting at 9 tomorrow morning for the whole day.

Will a radio broadcast do? XM radio will be broadcasting from all the venues on Saturday--check www.xmradio.com for the complete schedule. If you don't have XM, you have two days to make a new friend who does. :D
