The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration is proud to announce a continuation of the joint partnership with Charter Media to provide a live streaming video webcast of the 70th Annual Celebration.

The project will allow fans around the world to view the two events via computer for the fourth consecutive year.

The webcast has been made available free of charge for the Spring Fun Show performances while viewers will have an option of purchasing nightly, championship weekend, or full show packages for The Celebration.

“We continue to be very happy with our relationship with The Celebration,” said Audrey Wiseman, Charter Media Vice-President of Advertising for Tennessee, Kentucky, and Louisiana.  “We’re providing a service that helps The Celebration while exposing potential customers to the services we provide.  That’s what a great partnership is all about.”

There were some technical issues within the Charter infrastructure that caused some outages of service in 2007.  “Charter has been doing a great deal of testing and are doing everything possible to make sure the viewing experience in 2008 is as good as it can possibly be,” said Celebration Director of Public and Media Relations Chip Walters.

Fans wanting to view The Celebration online will need to make sure they have the latest version of Windows Media Player downloaded to their computer.  Higher speed connections, such as Charter High Speed Internet, other cable-based connections, or DSL will provide the smoothest viewing experience.  An active link will go up each night on The Celebration’s home page ( as well as Charter Mainstreet (  The service can be ordered by going to either of those sites as well.
