YouTube stars come together for second annual telethon

It’s that time of the year again: YouTube (S GOOG) stars like Freddie Wong, Toby Turner, Daily Grace, Mystery Guitar Man, Tyler Ward and a number of others are coming together Thursday night at 6pm P.T. for the site’s second annual Tube-A-Thon, a telethon-style live event that aims to raise money for charity. Just like last year, the event is going to be hosted by What’s Trending’s Shira Lazar, but this time around, it’s live streamed from YouTube’s Los Angeles studio space, which has been home to a growing number of live events this year, including YouTube’s first music awards show.

Epix to live stream Schooled: The Price of College Sports

Premium movie channel Epix will premiere its documentary Schooled: The Price of College Sports online this Wednesday, giving people without an Epix subscription access to the movie through a live stream at 5pm PT. The movie, which is all about the money in collegial sports, was produced exclusively by Epix. Making it available online could be good promotion for the network, but it’s also an interesting response to piracy and cord cutting. Epix CEO Mark Greenberg told me in a recent interview that the TV industry has to innovate to win over cord cutters:

“Some in the media business call this cord cutting. But three decades ago, we had a different name for this in the industry. We called it competition.”
