Bell Media is set to launch the first Canadian-made live streaming Twitter show by a Canadian media company called Sides, a “social-first” weekly series called Sides, hosted by teens for teens, explains the company in a press release.
Sides will air weekly on Wednesdays at 5PM PT/8PM ET, which features a rotating host panel of six teens, debating hot topics in current events and on social media.
The first live-stream of the show on October 11 reached over 45,000 viewers, while the follow up show this week saw an increased audience of 400 percent.
Nanci MacLean, Vice-President and Head, Bell Media Studios, said in a statement, “With content being posted every day on the @SIDES social media channels, and the Much broadcast incorporating the conversations happening around each episode, the series is a living thing that our viewers can interact with and help shape from week to week.”
