June 22, 2020
Insight TV, a global content producer and provider of 4K UHD HDR linear and digital channels, will be the only channel to broadcast the ‘Global Goal: Unite for our Future’ concert in 4K UHD HDR on June 27th.
Organised by international advocacy organization Global Citizen, the concert will be broadcast across all of Insight TV’s platforms in 46 countries around the world. Insight TV will also have the special available on demand from June 28th to June 30th.
Global Goal: Unite for our Future will serve to highlight the disproportionate impact Covid-19 has on marginalised communities – including people of colour, those living in extreme poverty and others facing discrimination. Hosted by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, the concert will celebrate innovators, scientists, health workers, activists and organisations working to develop and distribute Covid-19 tests, treatments to everyone.
Performances from Shakira, Coldplay, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Hudson and many more will be featured, along with appearances from global stars such as David Beckham, Chris Rock, Forest Whitaker, Hugh Jackman, Opal Tometti, Charlize Theron, Ken Jeong, Salam Hayek, Olivia Colman and more.
“Covid-19 has been an equal opportunity destroyer of life and livelihood, but the way governments, facilities and supply chains have operated in response to its widespread damage has been anything but equitable,” said Rian Bester, CEO, Insight TV. “Insight TV is joining this essential call-to-action via the powerful combination of music and television. The experience will be all the more impactful when viewed in 4K UHD HDR and we hope to play an important role in communicating a message that resonates around the world.”
