We now want to expand our content to include video capabilities and we’re very excited to be able to offer a ‘perpetual film festival’ to our devoted audience.
New York (PRWEB) April 6, 2006
With the launch of BreakThru Radio (BTR) last summer, the station’s goal was simple: to play the best music by unsigned and independent artists. The belief among the DJs at the station was that some of the best musical artists in the world were going unheard due to the brick walls put up by labels and traditional radio. This belief has been proven correct by a listening audience that has grown to more than 2 million a week - making BTR the largest internet radio station of its kind.
It is in this vein that BTR will expand its content to include video and films. In doing so, BTR will provide its audience with content from the most talented undiscovered filmmakers in the world. The programming will span a variety of formats, including short films, music videos and episodics.
“We’ve discovered amazing talent to play on BTR and truly believe that the only thing these artists need is an outlet in which to be showcased,” says Cal Rifkin, co-founder of BTR. “We now want to expand our content to include video capabilities and we’re very excited to be able to offer a ‘perpetual film festival’ to our devoted audience.”
BTR’s media player will broadcast 24 hours a day and is now accepting video submissions to launch its inaugural programming in June.
