We went to and upgraded our television package so that we could watch our favorite band in a live concert. HDNET is a channel that you can get that broadcasts live concerts. Our favorite band, Widespread Panic, was playing a concert at a small venue for about five hundred people in their hometown. We were luckily enough to get tickets, but live in Salt Lake City and were not going to be able to make it all the way back to Athens, Georgia for the concert. We ended up giving our tickets to my husband’s brother and a friend. They had a blast. We were glad that we got to watch the concert on television. Even though we weren’t there, and were missing a concert of a lifetime, we felt like we were. We even saw some of our friends in the crowd on TV. It was the next best thing to being there in person. We will definitely be watching more concerts live on HDNET that we are not going to be able to attend in person. It was a great solution to being geographically challenged for the concert.
