Linkin Park Television

August 26, 2011

I just got off the phone with our LPU team this morning.  We talk regularly, starting to prepare for the next year of LP Underground, and looking for ways to make stuff awesome for the members.  Nothing specific to report yet, but it just got me thinking…one of my favorite features of LPU is the ability to download any episode of LPTV–members can download any of our episodes, in a variety of resolutions.  Here are two of our most recent LPTV episodes

Go HERE to check out the videos you can download.

    watching MTV Worldstage from Moscow over and over again. I was at another edge of the earth that day (btw im russian), but even in MP4 this is the best live perfomance i had luck to see. Thank you guys, awesome.

    I think my favorite part is when Phoenix says that he’s got the Chester :D I am so using that from now on…

    After my two long posts I really do not want to spam you, but ask for help. We still are trying to get as much ideas as possible for the female merchandise. If you can please tweet this link: http://therosko.wordpress.com/2011/08/20/linkin-park-merchandise/ or do whatever you think is the best. :) Thank you, Mike. I hope you’ll enjoy the LA show. It’s sure going to be amazing!

    I did’nt buy the number 10 because it is too expensive for the content.
    But I expect a lot of 11, hoping to see some demo of A Thousand Suns

    ps : great idea for next album => http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UI5BbqlpbhU

    I think the LPTV episodes are the most popular things you guys do for us fans.
    The social networks go totally bonkers when new episodes are online. They aren’t only funny as hell, but also give an insight into all the stuff the band is up to, no matter if it’s a tour or studio work. I hope you never stop making them! Cheers to Mark Fiore for shooting them and looking so handsome XD.

    Little idea for the next LPU year: Annual Lite membership with everything minus LPU Summits and Meet&Greets. Most fans don’t join LPU cause they can’t use the live stuff out of different reasons. Other idea: you offer all features seperately so that fans can compile their own LPU package. You could sell different annual membership packages with different numbers of features: Small package = 3 features, middle = 4, big package = 5 and the fans can choose which features they want in their package. So I could buy a small LPU membership with the band chat, LPTV DL and M&G, or a big LPU with Summits, M&G’s, chat, LPTV etc. Don’t know if it’s doable, but it would be cool.

    The LPU/LPTV’s are one of my favourite features from the LPU. Though it would be awesome if you’d either kept uploading more regularly than usual or extend the LPU ones even longer. Even though I don’t know how much of there time it takes to upload them…

  13. cincybmxlpfreak on August 27, 2011 at 10:41 am

    I love LPTV. I’ve been watching it since, like, forever. <3

  14. Claudia B. on August 27, 2011 at 9:04 am

    Honestly the idea of having the chance to download the LPTV episodes in HD sounds nice but there are a bunch of people who upload those episodes and it’s really easy to download them straight from YouTube, even via Linkin Park’s official channel. I hope you’re aware of that.

    It would make more sense if exclusive merch were added, a message board as well.

  15. therosko on August 27, 2011 at 9:03 am

    If someone who has never been an LPU member says that LPU is a bullshit and is not worth it at all, then I can only say…why are you talking about something you have never done/seen? The trial chat? Oh,come on…there were so many trolls online, so many people spamming and being silly, making fun, not respecting anyone…That’s not LPU…that was a nice try to make you (the non-LPU-members get in touch with us and learn more about being an LPUer by asking us! I personally talked to many people and I can say that they liked it.
    To Mike… everything you, guys, do for us, is appreciated! Of course we would love to see something new, but we all love you and you know it ;)

    It is indeed sad to see people hating so bad on LPU or on things you are saying/doing in general. Yes it is true that there are many people (even LPUers), who download the episodes of LPTV and even LPU*TV and upload them on Youtube. Yes it is true that band member- chats might be laggy if your connection is not good enough, but I must say.. I’ve been an LPU member for 4 months now and every single second spent with LPU was totally worth it and has changed my life. It feels like a family. Every band member cares about us all and wants to hear our opinion on many things as well! This is already enough for me! They might have never been to my country, but I found a way to go see them.

  17. valkriz on August 27, 2011 at 8:25 am

    Mike, it really makes us fans happy that you are always thinking about ways to make the LPU better. You work a lot and we appreciate you for it, I hope you enjoy life with your family and loved ones as much as you enjoy work! :)

  18. jershalp on August 27, 2011 at 7:40 am

    I love both these LPTV episodes :))
    I so wish my parents let me join da LPU :(

  19. onedegreeent2011 on August 27, 2011 at 6:29 am

    Love LPTV (Mr. Hahn’s ‘Alien’ film hand-action reinactment was awesome lol). Beyond the great episodes and inside glimpse of LP I love the LPU community and well worth the 60 bucks for the summits and meet and greets (MSG!) :) and the t-shirts and artwork pack I just loved. You rock Mike thank you. :)

  20. guro2105 on August 27, 2011 at 5:27 am

    Haha, I can see myself in the second video :D

    Mikey & LP ROckX

  22. mikeecem on August 27, 2011 at 4:08 am

    like you said awesome stuff for lpuers. my hubble opinion, you should finish lp’s new album next year

  23. immortalizemyname on August 27, 2011 at 3:58 am

    Hi, Mike and everyone. It’d be great to know how do you feel about Moscow’s concert, “Wisdom Justice Love” flashmob, Moscow’s audience…
    We did our best to produce an impression upon Linkin Park. Hope it has been stayed in your memory, guys.

    2:
    I’m not a member of LPU, but the most appealing aspect of it to me is interaction with the band -the summits/chats. However, it’s hard 2 know wen they’re gon be, so I don’t want 2 pay 4 something I might not get. I’m in Australia & u don’t tour here 2 often,& it also makes timing with the live chats difficult. However, I did the free LPU weekend & stayed up 4 the orientation chat&didn’t really like it. There were way 2 many people & it was pretty laggy. If u cud figure out a way 2 make interaction with u mor certain, I’d be in 4 sure. Even sumth simple like locked members-only Twitter account where u answer our questions & DM us.

    1:
    Anyone can download the videos from YouTube. You don’t even need a browser plug-in; there are many websites that simply require you to enter the URL, and they offer you a choice of the resolutions the uploader’s made available (i.e. keepvid.com). The official LPTV YouTube only offers 360p, but that doesn’t stop members from uploading the high-res videos. (I haven’t checked, but I’m sure they do.)
    It’s a cool feature and makes the job easier, but not something I’d consider exclusive. Any videos or music you give your members will leak. As for merch and stuff, not that I don’t love you, but it doesn’t really appeal to me.

  26. enjakuro on August 27, 2011 at 1:41 am

    hey mike
    it’s awesome to hear about the progress being made for the next lpu year. but still i’m a little skeptical bout the whole thing -just look back at the disastrous starting of lpux…
    i know, that what we get now is still much more than other bands do and also that 60 bucks, even if the membership fees increased, isn’t much for what we get.
    to say it short: pls don’t promise things that will never happen, and everything will be alright (at least for me xP)

    p.s.: Ha.

  27. anvanoppens on August 27, 2011 at 12:36 am

    Wow thanks Mike!
    Wouldn’t know what the LPU would be without LP/LPUtv! BTW, too bad we missed some Werchter (Belgium) footage -& probably some other shows as well- in the last European tour episodes… :)
    Keep posting!

    Can´t wait to hear about it :)

  29. nlopezdearenosa on August 27, 2011 at 12:16 am

    HAHA. I love the troll in the corner at 6:35. Thanks for letting us clueless people know I can load my iPod with your episodes…. (:

  30. Zara on August 26, 2011 at 10:52 pm

    LPTV is great, although anyone can download the HD LPTV episodes from Youtube with a simple browser plugin.

    Looking forward for the package for LPU11 & hopefully a messageboard so the LPU can start to feel like a community again, and it will provide a means of contact with LPUHQ for customer service purposes.

  31. dcl1982 on August 26, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    Ha! @KathyXXX I’m pretty sure you can download them from youtube, as well…

  32. starmony78 on August 26, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    Episode in LPTV make my day, Chester is hilarious… love being part of LPU

  33. argol8489 on August 26, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    You’re right, is one of the best things about LPU.

  34. Alexandra Nofi on August 26, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    Okay, I am just gonna come right out and say it: I hate it when you advertise LPU because it makes you sound like a salesperson. If you want fans to join up, us be straight forward and say, “If you join LPU you get this”. And no offense but, at my job, I can totally work the personal favorite sales tactic far more efficiently. So there ;D

    If you don’t see the humor in that, there’s something wrong with you.

  35. Nina Nine on August 26, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    ..Great job! I love the LPTV, it make me feel like I wanna be part of LPU.. well done! Thanks, you’re the best!

    They keep me entertained for a good couple of hours when my electricity goes out and I have no interwebz. Kudos to whoever came up with that idea.
