about mtvU who had the exclusive premiere of the video:

MTVU actually took over the the College Student Unions channel that used to be broadcast at Universities around the country. Tons of Student Unions have contracts that specify that they have tvs tuned to that particular channel (or did as of 2006 when I was still working at one here in STL).

That channel* (the original and when it was absorbed into MTVu) was how I got to first see videos that got little play elsewhere by Our Lady Peace, Dredg, Switchfoot (pre-blowing up), M.I.A. and tons others, cause the TVs were always on playing vids (and re-runs of the real world and the road rules back then).

It's great for people who are into new music, and the Woodie awards is celebration of all those sorts of artists. It's closest to vintage Fuse in that concern. BUT... You can only get it on extended cable and satellite as far as I know, or on campuses.

for college aged folks it's demographically specific and meant to appeal to you guys, and in a way, they get it right: http://www.mtvu.com/
*checked the wiki, and it confirms what I recalled, but didn't post cause it was so obvious that I wasn't sure of myself. At UM-St. Louis, where I worked, it was called the College Television Network. The article mentions the Burly Bear Network as competition, which is funny, cause at Truman State, that network took over the On Campus feed while I was an undergrad up there.

Hopefully the Video will benefit for Television Airplay on Campuses and in those same types of buildings and on campus feeds. In my case, youtube is the place I go to "rediscover" videos or live performances I saw elsewhere on Television at some point.

MTVu is where I first heard Arcade Fire. That was early 2005 and most of the other stuff on there never really caught my attention - I didn't spend too much time in the student center so maybe there was some better stuff being played.

The only other video/song I remember being shown in late 2004 I guess was Somewhere Only We Know by Keane which my roommates and I referred to as The Forest Song. Laughing
