The recent Xbox Dashboard update brought with it a host of new apps and features. One of the new apps is attempting to show its muscle with a live streaming event next week. Jon Stewart, Coldplay, Sarah Silverman, Stephen Colbert and many others are streaming live to Xbox 360 on March 4th from Amnesty International’s Secret Policeman’s Ball.
On Sunday, March 4th at 7 p.m. ET/ 4 p.m. PT, EPIX will live stream the broadcast of Amnesty International’s Secret Policeman’s Ball, a one-night comedy and music festival, via Xbox 360, Roku, and www.epixhd.com. Performers for the night will include American comedians Fred Armisen, Hannibal Buress, David Cross, Bill Hader, Rashida Jones, Seth Meyers, Bob Odenkirk, John Oliver, Andy Samberg, Sarah Silverman, Statler & Waldorf from Disney’s The Muppets, Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig, plus British comics Noel Fielding, Micky Flanagan, Peter Serafinowicz and Jack Whitehall. Other musical and comedic stars performing for the night are Coldplay, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Mumford & Sons, Russell Brand and Reggie Watts.
EPIX is one of the top video apps available for Xbox 360 users to stream top-tier movies to their TV screens.
I thought a few of you might enjoy the experience. The Xbox 360 is really showing off here. I can’t imagine what the Xbox 720 will bring.
