Twitter & Dick Clark Productions Team Up to Stream More Live Events




Twitter is continuing its slow roll of new content deals for its live streaming service. First Twitter teamed up with the NFL followed by deals with the Pac-12, NBA, and even PBS.

Now Twitter and Dick Clark Productions have teamed up. Dick Clark Productions is probably best-known for its New Year’s Eve shows, but this deal focuses on streaming red carpet pre-shows of many popular awards shows.

Now you will be able to watch the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards, 2017 American Music Awards, and the Billboard Music Awards pre-shows on Twitter for free.

“We are thrilled with the success of the Golden Globes red carpet pre-show and look forward to working with Twitter on additional shows,” said Mike Mahan, president, Dick Clark Productions, in a statement about the new deal. “By offering a unique online viewing opportunity, we are able to expand the audience experience and generate deeper, more compelling conversation.”

This is great news for cord cutters even if you are not a fan of red carpet shows. As more events move online showing how successful they can be more services and events are encouraged to offer content online to cord cutters.
