Streaming Video Set To Go For Celebration



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - Fans wishing to watch The Tennessee Walking Horse National CelebrationSM on their computers via streaming video can sign up for the service, starting today.

            The CelebrationSM, in conjunction with Charter Media and WdA International, are producing and making all 15 performances of the World’s Greatest Horse Show available on pay-per-view streaming video.

            Fans will have an opportunity to choose from four different plans:

 

ALL ACCESS PASS – All 15 Performances                    $49.95
CHAMPIONSHIP PASS – Final three nights                    $19.95
DAILY PASS #1 – Any full day (first 8 days)                    $  7.95
DAILY PASS #2 – Any full day (final 3 days)                   $  9.95

 

            “We received a great deal of positive response from our webcasts last year,” said Celebration CEO Ron Thomas.  “The quality was outstanding and it opened a window for people to view the show that could not be in Shelbyville in person.”

            Streaming video was made available during the Spring Fun Show in 2005 to give potential viewers a sneak peek and what will be offered during The CelebrationSM.  Nearly 1,500 people subscribed to the service for the 2005 Celebration.  Internet viewers will get the exact same feed that goes to the JumboTron video screens and to the closed-circuit system in the barn area.

            “The CelebrationSM is a great partner that has allowed us to spread our wings and try some new things,” said Audrey Wiseman, Charter Media Vice-President of Advertising for Tennessee, Kentucky, and Louisiana.  “This project is a natural progression to provide wonderful family entertainment for our customers and expand the audience for The Celebration.”

            Charter Media will be providing other family entertainment throughout the eleven days and nights of the show, including live karaoke at the annual Barbecue Cookout.

            “We had a terrific first year with project,” remarked Bill Anderson of WdA International.  “People seemed to really enjoy the telecast. With multiple cameras and special features, it makes for an interesting viewing experience.”

            Fans wanting to view The CelebrationSM will need to make sure they have the latest version of Windows Media Player downloaded to their computer.  Higher speed connections, such as Charter Pipeline, other cable-based connections, or DSL will provide the smoothest viewing experience.  An active link to securely sign up for the service is available now on The Celebration’s home page (www.twhnc.com) as well as Charter Mainstreet (www.yourmainstreet.com).

            The 68th Annual Tennessee Walking Horse National CelebrationSM is slated for August 23-September 2.
