Why use the Internet unless you can control the content, right? Deal to Put Live Concerts on Internet Is Dissolved
AOL and a group of entertainment entrepreneurs who created a venture to produce and distribute live concerts on the Internet and elsewhere have dissolved their partnership after just 14 months, executives in the venture said yesterday.
The move to unwind the venture, which was called Network Live, came as its co-founder and chief executive, Kevin Wall, announced that he had struck a new deal to produce live events to be distributed through Microsoftâ€™s online service and, potentially, through products like Xbox. The venture with Microsoft will be called Control Room, he said.
No irony intended in that name, of course……..
