So here's the thing...

Kevin Pereira, Alison's friend and former G4 AOTS cohost, is starting a new streaming service called Sidestream. The service is a bit like Twitch, except instead of watching someone play video games, you get to watch licensed movies with other streamers!

Well, today on Kevin's Twitch channel, during his Front Page program, Kevin announced that:

1) they would be testing the Sidestream service tomorrow (4/6/2017) and was asking people to sign up (for free) so they could be a part of the test, but also announced that

2) sometime in the coming weeks, Alison and Alex Albrecht (Alison's cohost from 4 Points and the Half Hour Happy Hour podcast) have scheduled an event where they will be on the service, watching the movie Scarface (which Alison has never seen)!

Kevin also mentioned that they may be doing a drinking game along with the movie - he wasn't 100% sure.


To setup an account, go to https://test.sidestream.com/  and click on the button that says "Get This" - you will be forwarded to a login/account creation page.

Register for an account and you'll be all set - be sure to write down your password (I didn't and now I'm waiting for it to reset) Undecided

The site is a little "in construction", but if you do have an issue - there's an email address on the Contact Us page.

Lastly, if you can, participate in tomorrow's test - Kevin and his friends/coworkers will be test streaming an episode of "Morning Scramble" - it's a mismash of web videos and old commercials which have become a fave on Twitch for those that follow Kevin's program, The Attack. The program will take place at 9pm Central Standard Time and the more people who participate, the better they can test for any issues/bugs/etc. in the system....so that by the time Alison and Alex have their own Sidestream event, everything should be good to go!  Grin


I'll post updates as soon as I hear more - so keep an eye out here for more information regarding the Alison/Alex Scarface movie watching (and anything else Alison might be part of)!

Later!

Bit of an update here:

SideStream posted this earlier:

Quote from: SideStreamCom
Itís a SCARFACE viewing party! on 5/23 hosted by @alisonhaislip @alexalbrecht LIVE! Go to http://bit.ly/Scarface01  to join them #scarface pic.twitter.com/8p61J0RFAX




So, as mentioned previously - Alison has never seen Scarface, and both she and Alex will be watching it live, providing commentary while YOU (the viewer) watch both them and the movie on SideStream.com - the new service that Kevin Pereira has started up.

They've been working out the bugs, so things should go smooth(ish)...

Unfortunately, this may not be a "free" event - Kevin mentioned on his show, The Attack, that this may be one of the first "pay" events, and he was right. To view the event, will cost $8.99....which isn't too bad, considering what actual movie theater passes cost these days. Plus, you get to see Alison and Alex comment on the movie and if you've listened to their HHHH podcast....you know how it can get Tongue

AAAAAAAANYWAY..... if you're interested, sign up for the event - they describe it as follows:

Say Hello To Our LIttle Event!

Itís a movie night. Itís a virtual viewing party. Itís our first official SideStream event!

Join uber-nerds and besties Alex Albrecht and Alison Haislip live on your screen as they count the "F" bombs and dodge the bullets unleashed by that mad Miamian, Tony Montoya.

If youíve seen Scarface, it is definitely worth another watch with these two co-hosting, and if you havenít seen it before, then WTF? (actually, Alisonís never seen it before, so you can discover it along with her).

SideStream is an all-new service that gives friends and fans the chance to watch a movie they love, together, live in real-time hosted by someone whose opinion they care about.

Join us, tell your friends, just donít go overboard...no need to have guns or blow on hand, that stuff is bad news.

BTW, regarding those "F" bombs, thereís a famous band whoís named after the number of times youíll hear it uttered in ScarfaceÖAlison and Alex will have the scoop.

And if you don't have an account - get one! Grin
