Gang of Youth’s MTV Unplugged to air this weekend in the U.S.

Well this is pretty great news for those of us who

a) call ourselves GOY fans,
b) live in the U.S., and
c) still haven’t seen the MTV Unplugged performance from a few months ago:

The show is going to air this weekend on the MTV Live channel. Here are the times:

  • Saturday (Dec. 1) at 9:00 PM and 12:00 AM ET
  • Monday (Dec. 3) at 10:30 PM ET

Now, before you get too excited, this isn’t the main MTV channel we’re talking about, nor is it MTV2 or even MTV Classic. It’s MTV Live, and your cable/satellite/TV provider may not carry the station. (For example, here at Casa McGee, we pay DirecTV a boatload of money every month for a zillion channels and we don’t get MTV Live. Ugh.)

If the Wikipedia page for MTV Live is correct, you can find the channel here:

  • DirecTV: channel 572
  • Dish Network: channel 369
  • AT&T U-verse: channel 1505
  • Verizon FIOS: channel 715

It may also be available on your local cable network; check your guide or call them or whatever you need to do.

Good luck. I’ll probably be paying DirecTV a little extra this month to get whatever extra package I need for MTV Live. And then canceling right after.
