MSN Live Earth Streaming A Success

MSN streamed the Live Earth concert even this past weekend, and by all accounts it was a success. Microsoft claims it connected more than 10 million streams, the most simultaneous viewers of any online concert ever. The worldwide audience tuned in to see concerts in New York, London, Sydney, Tokyo, Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg, Hamburg and acts including The Police, Genesis, Bon Jovi and Madonna, Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson, Black Eyed Peas and Jack Johnson.

Steve Lamb writes that you can see a replay of all the performances now at Harrison Hoffman details the Soapbox-powered website created by MSN for the concerts, which uses some pretty cool design in making it easy to find the music you are interested in.

Shame then that I can’t the damn thing to run. Must be network congestion, or something.

  1. Wow, That is a great news after yahoo’s “Internet Radio Day of Silence” It is not just limited to audio streams so you can say they are different things but all these broadcasting activities through the internet will let us practice more with copy rights and help us to determine the right directions for those. Thanks for the great news.
