Remember that scene of Wall-E in which mankind spends the day looking at screens and eating food as if there were no tomorrow? Well, that day is almost here. We're getting used to doing everything at home, from working remotely to doing our shopping online. The human being is lazy by nature, the first step is to admit it. However, initiatives of the likes of FeelTheLive go even further as it's ultimate purpose is to sell tickets so that you can watch live concerts from your sofa at home.
One of the most important projects by reference Latin artists/bands, broadcasting the most exclusive concerts live over the Internet.
Just think about one of those concerts in which all the tickets are sold out in less than 30 seconds. Or all those people that can't stand crowds of people who can never attend the concerts of their beloved bands. What can we do with this market niche? Very simple: sell unlimited tickets to watch the concert online. It's the perfect business, especially for those who earn profits with the sales of tickets: all fans can now enjoy live concerts and the ticket seller can become immensely rich as the only limit is the capacity of the server of this online platform.
You can choose the camera to watch the concert.
Failed launch but with a promising future
The truth is that the release of this platform couldn't have been any worse. The users of the service were left without access to the concert they had bought tickets for. But despite the flop, we have to admit that the idea is cool (especially because you can muck around with the camera) provided that the tickets are sold at a reasonable price. You obviously can't charge the same to a person that's physically there and to a person watching it at home. The experience and the product are totally different. It's like charging the same for an eBook and a physical book, or a digital game and a cartridge. Who would possibly do that?
Well, the developers obviously have to make sure they don't put their foot in it once again, fixing their platform. From there on, we'll probably be able to become home-watchers of some of the shows held by our favorite artists:
- David Bisbal.
- John Newman.
- Enrique Iglesias.
- Ricky Martin.
- Luis Fonsi.
- Carlos Rivera.
Let's just hope things get better, otherwise, the guys behind this platform aren't going to earn enough money to refund all the tickets they've sold.
