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 www.petetownshend.co.uk 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.
