Latest News | Bennett Miller to direct Tim McGraw ‘American Express Unstaged’ live concert webcast


American Express announced recently that GRAMMY award-winning, country icon Tim McGraw and Oscar award-winning director Bennett Miller will be the next pair to collaborate in the popular live stream music series “American Express Unstaged,” on September 16th from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

Miller (Moneyball, Capote, The Cruise and Foxcatcher), one of contemporary film’s most influential and unique storytellers, was brought together with Tim McGraw by American Express to capture the excitement and emotion of McGraw’s performance through an engaging digital viewing experience.

“Bennett is such an incredibly talented director and I’m excited that we get to work together on the next ‘Unstaged,’” said Tim McGraw. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for him and his work. I know with his unique, creative point of view, this will be a really special experience for me and my fans on the day my album comes out.”

McGraw and Miller’s collaboration represents the 15th installment of the innovative live stream music series “American Express Unstaged.” Launched in the summer of 2010, “American Express Unstaged” showcases some of the music industry’s most breakthrough artists playing at landmark venues around the world, while tapping some of today’s most influential filmmakers to direct the live streams and using digital and social media to connect the online audience to the live shows in unexpected ways.

In partnership with VEVO and YouTube, the performance will begin at 9:00 PM ET / 6:00 PM PT on September 16, will be directed by Miller and will be live streamed for fans tuning in from all around the globe.

The performance is timed to the release date of McGraw’s newest album, “Sundown Heaven Town,” available on First Play on iTunes Radio presented by American Express beginning September 9. First Play on iTunes Radio allows fans to listen to full-length albums a week prior to release.

Latest News | Live streaming service Twitch to be acquired by Amazon for $970 million


After months of speculation from a number of sources that Twitch would be scooped up by Google to bolster it’s YouTube platform, enter another tech giant who’s also ready to play in the live streaming world.

Seattle-based company Amazon is set to acquire the live streaming service for $970 million cash, with the deal slated to go through in the second half of this year.

“Being part of Amazon will let us do even more for our community. We will be able to create tools and services faster than we could have independently. This change will mean great things for our community, and will let us bring Twitch to even more people around the world,” noted Twitch CEO Emmett Shear.

Integrating the two products will serve Amazon’s expanding video business as it looks to compete with Hulu, Netflix and YouTube in the video streaming arena.

“Like Twitch, we obsess over customers and like to think differently, and we look forward to learning from them and helping them move even faster to build new services for the gaming community,” said Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
