    Poking around the "New channels" section on my Roku, I stumbled across "Love From London". It's filled with concerts and seems to have few, if any ads. I'm watching a Judie Tzuke concert from 1985 right now and no ads. The video quality is very good (if SD) and the sound is excellent.

    If you have a Roku, or a TV set with a Roku built in like a TCL or a HiSense, you should check it out.

    Looking through the list I see shows by:

    • Cabaret Voltaire
    • The Blow Monkeys
    • Curiosity Killed The Cat
    • Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel
    • Pete Shelley
    • Danielle Dax
    • Lee Aaron
    • Steve Marriott
    • The Fabulous Thunderbirds
    • Lords of the New Church
    • Wishbone Ash
    • John Martyn
    • Climax Blues Band
    • Dr. John
    • Rick Derringer
    • Livingston Taylor
    • Marty Balin
    • Poco
    • Orleans
    • Nazareth
    • UFO
    • Flesh For Lulu
    There are also some very old music TV shows from the likes of Dean Martin.
    Haircut 100's bassist is freaking amazing!

    I'm not clear who's paying for it. A well-developed channel and the bandwidth necessary to support it are expensive.

    Glad you dig it! I was just looking at this list and knowing that there is stuff here that some of my fellow Forum members are going to love.

    Roku channels sadly follow Sturgeon's Law and 90% of them are crap.

    The name of the channel is Live From London. Apparently I have to re-read everything after posting because the Android spell checker goes and changes things much earlier in the post for no apparent reason.

    Was a little hard to find, searching "London" and not "Live" worked. Have homework today and appreciating some new music. As I scrolled the selections UFO ended up as my 1st stop. Looks very interesting, thanks for the post :)

    Glad to help! I don't know when they'll start to monetize the channel, but until then it's cool to see full concerts in good quality for free!
