Yes, EVNTLIVE is another live streaming platform but what makes them different is that they film regular live concerts from signed, popular indie artists through to the big names and provide a place, for fans who missed out on a ticket, to see the concert themselves.
The word on the street is that the live music industry was booming in 2012 and will continue to do so in 2013. It is therefore unlikely that companies like EVNTLIVE will impact on the number of people who fork out for tickets to gigs. I know I would much rather be at the gig than watch it on a computer. However, more and more venues and festivals are live streaming performances and they are very popular on sites such as YouTube… when they are free to watch. The on-demand service that EVNTLIVE are going to launch will consist of three options. There will be some concerts available on a pay-per-view basis, some will appear at reduced rates or free on a sponsorship basis, and in some cases content may appear for free without sponsorship.
EVNTLIVE will begin offering invitations to the beta version of it’s service. If you sign up to use the beta version then you can begin using it the following week. The company expects to be in the invite-beta phase for 4-6 weeks as they add content and roll out the service. It is an interesting concept and I must say that I am curious as to how it will work.
EVNTLIVE told Milky Tea Kid “EVNTLIVE will offer both livestreams of concerts across genres as well as archived on demand shows. Some concerts will be free and others will range from $2.99-$6.99. We are starting in the US & CANADA with plans to hit the UK and beyond within the next few months.”
