MTV/VH1 KNOW NOW HOW TO BROADCAST

imageIn the television equivalent of a do-over, the MTV Networks aired 10 commercial-free hours of performances Saturday from last weekend’s Live 8 concerts. Viewers were able to see the entire sets of Sting, U2, Coldplay, Pink Floyd, Kanye West and Green Day on either MTV or VH1, and sometimes both.
MTV took a critical whipping and received complaints from more than 2,000 viewers about their eight hours of Live 8 coverage on July 2. Between commercials, interviews and reports from correspondents, MTV often showed only a song or two from several of the performances.
