The students from my class (Live Experimental Interactive Television) at ITP are on again tonight. This week it is Unitv:
UnItv is an exciting new venture in live television. Performed as a local news broadcast, the ‘news team’ is given real-time user submitted content (images, questions, lyrics, and youtube videos) on which they improv the news, weather, a celebrity interview and a performance with a special musical guest. The home television audience is provided with a two-screen setup where they use our website to become part of the show. In the spirit of true improvisation, our cast is dependent upon user suggestions to make up the show as they string one joke along to the next. UnItv was created through the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU in collaboration with Manhattan Neighborhood Network and airs on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network Tuesday April 20th at 8:30pm. For more information, check out http://unitv.me.
If you are in Manhattan, you can watch on MNN at 8:30 PM:
Time Warner Cable channel 34
RCN channel 82
Verizon FiOS channel 33
(all in Manhattan only)
If you aren’t in Manhattan, there *should be* a live stream of the program on http://unitv.me
Hope you catch it!
