MTV to add fan livestreams to music programming in 2017

Back in June, MTV Music tested a slot that allowed fans to broadcast their dance moves on national TV. A specific hashtag meant the show’s producers could see people’s livestreams in real-time and pick the best ones to accompany each music video. Now, MTV Australia is planning a full-time show that will utilize the same concept next year. It doesn’t have a name, but Viacom — MTV’s owner — says it will be a “truly innovative and immersive fan experience never seen on television.” – Nick Summers, Engadget
