Exclusive Adult Swim Second Life Event: Introducing Live Video Streaming in SL
Be among the first to experience live video streaming inside Second Life at an exclusive Adult Swim screening event, held this Friday, May 8 at 4 p.m. (SLT/Pacific)/7 p.m. (ET).
Watch two classic episodes and two all-new unreleased episodes from the forthcoming second season of “The Shivering Truth” at this special event, to be held inworld at a new venue created exclusively for this screening.
During the event, you can chat with fellow fans of the show and other special guests as you experience the show together for the first time in the virtual world. Free limited-edition virtual gifts and mementos will also be distributed during and after the show -- just look for the “Free Gifts” kiosk near the front entrance.
The event also marks the first media partnership utilizing the new limited-release Second Life Viewer, which enables content creators and entertainment companies to broadcast live video events to virtual world audiences. In the future, you may see several new forms of entertainment including movie and TV premieres, live concerts, and artist/fan meet-and-greets. We're very excited to partner with Adult Swim for the debut of this new feature, which we plan to integrate into the main Second Life Viewer release in the coming weeks.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
- Whether you are new to Second Life or a returning resident, you’ll need a special Viewer to see the Adult Swim live video stream in Second Life and participate in this event. Download the all-new limited-edition beta version of the Second Life Viewer in advance of the event to ensure that you are ready. Please note that other Viewers will not be compatible with the live stream during the screening event!
