AB Parade Press Release

Many of you are wondering why we canceled the LIVE Webcast of the Apple Blossom Parade.

The following is the official press release from WLM & NSLive.tv.

May 26, 2016.
Revision June 17, 2016
Seeing that Eastlink is a generous contributor to the Apple Blossom Festival and we were unaware that of the exclusive contract they have with the festival regarding its coverage we have cancelled our planned webcast out of respect for the festival organizers in the hopes of maintaining good relations with them so we might be able to work with them in the future. There are many events that Eastlink doesn’t cover for Apple Blossom Festival like the K-Rock Birthday Bash and fireworks. Two events that would be fantastic to webcast.

We are already setting our sights on other events around the province. Stay tuned for more information on these and other events.

Sincere Regards

Brian Cottam.

  1. Hi Brian – unfortunate turn of events – I think your estimate of 10 years is generous. We haven’t had cable for about 5 years now and other than not being up on the water cooler gossip on current network shows we don’t miss it!

  2. I applaud you on this. Most festivals and events are going this way…big companies with money. I am glad you are taking a stance. You folks do an amazing jog and i look forward to seeing other projects you do in the future.

    Support a LOCAL business!

    1. I firmly believe in paying everyone.
      We had planned, once sufficient sponsors were on board, to give them a percentage. After all they are providing the event for us to cover. Too bad they are locked into a contract for opening this up to others like ourselves could generate even more income. Their loss.
