While the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys won’t be televised this year, key components of it will be available via the Twitter app Periscope on the 1st live streaming channel for Periscope … Parachute TV!
According to The Wrap on Wednesday, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) has teamed up with Parachute TV, to provide Daytime TV fans with unique, behind-the-scenes access on Periscope. Along with red carpet coverage on Parachute TV, Emmy winners will have an immediate opportunity to interact with fans on Periscope, moments after they make their way backstage.
Awards shows are doing an incredible job with live-streaming apps like Periscope and Facebook Live,” said Parachute TV Co-Founder Caroline Lesley, who will also serve as one of the event’s hosts on Periscope. “And giving fans a chance to interact with their favorite celebrities backstage is another great step forward.” Parachute TV, which launched on Periscope last August, now reaches more than a million viewers.
Parachute TV will cover the red carpets of both the main ceremony on Sunday, May 1st and the Creative Arts Emmys on Friday night, April 29th.
