America's Kidz Network will present a September pay-per-view concert featuring popular
teen band 'N Sync.
The taped concert -- the first television performance by
the band -- will debut Sept. 11, and it will feature the band's special-effects-laden
performance, Buena Vista said. The event will retail at a suggested price of $19.95.
"'N Sync 'N Concert" will be available on DirecTV
Inc. and EchoStar Communications Corp.'s Dish Network, and it will be distributed by
Viewer's Choice, TVN Entertainment Corp. and Diva Systems Corp.
"'N Sync is one of the hottest groups around, and
bringing such a musical powerhouse to the PPV audience is a fantastic opportunity,"
Buena Vista Pay TV senior vice president and general manager Dan Cohen said. "With
the overwhelming success that they've seen over the past year, we have no doubt that this
will be an equally successful PPV event."
"'N Sync is the fastest-rising pop group in America,
[and] the support of this hot young band is a breakthrough step for WAM!," network
vice president of programming Midge Pierce said.
