The Who Launch Their Own TV Station

Published: 2004-09-30
The Who's Pete Townshend is taking the communicative powers of the internet one step further than most artists. The legendary guitarist has turned the web site into a virtual television station. The program, dubbed Who TV, is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week using Windows Media Player stream.

Planned features for Who TV include broadcasts of live performances, rehearsals, and artist showcases. The site even promises that if The Who go on tour again, the footage from the live shows may end up on the station. There will also be a thing called Vox Box in which people can say whatever they want to the camera - it sounds much like City TVs 'Speakers' Corner'.

The webcast is to have free access for fans, with only 'big' events coming with a price tag of unknown amounts. Recent material that's popped up on Who TV, which was launched this September, is 'The Who - Live in Boston' DVD (released September 14th). This weekend promises the broadcast of movie made by a Meher Baba follower, which will fill up two hours of Who TV.
