The Inside Track

Not a film. Not a concert. An experience.

Go behind the velvet rope and beyond imagination.

FIRST SPIN® is a broadcast event like no other, combining the energy of a live performance with the all-access vibe of a red-carpet Hollywood affair.

From the moment you take a seat at your local theater or VELOCITY HD Digital Suite, FIRST SPIN takes you on a live VIP journey from backstage to onstage with your favorite recording artists.

FIRST SPIN’s one-of-a-kind interactive technology enables fans to pick the artists’ wardrobe, choose the songs they hear, and ask the questions they’ve always wanted to ask. Live and in High-Definition.

FIRST SPIN also features high-impact premieres of hit movies, television series and DVD releases. You can walk the red carpet with Hollywood stars and interact with your favorite filmmakers.

Ask questions. Discover the story behind the story, from script to screen. No one gets you closer to the lights, camera, action.

FIRST SPIN is an exclusive, see-and-be-seen event. No two shows are alike because the fans make the rules.

FIRST SPIN has featured interactive, live HD events for superstar recording artist Jewel; CMA and ACM award nominees Steel Magnolia; GRAMMY® winners and jazz legends Wynton Marsalis and Stanley Jordan; and EMI classical pianist John Bayless.

Hear it. See it. Be it. First.
