PODCAST: THE FASHIONTRIBES INTERVIEW WITH REED PRICE, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF MSN VIDEO WHICH HAS COMPLETE COVERAGE - & 6 HOURS OF STREAMING CONTENT (WHICH YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE!) - ON THE OFFICIAL DOINGS AT TIMES SQUARE FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE 2006! - MP3 File

The next best thing to being there - and possibly better, given a) you get to forgo the fight to stake out your spot starting early in the morning; b) the freezing weather; c) the fact you're standing around with at least a million others - is watching it from the comfort of your couch. “For the second year running, we’re giving New Year’s revelers around the world a unique view of Times Square,” said Rob Bennett, product unit manager for MSN® Video, TV and Movies, which will be covering the official doings on 42nd Street at MSN.com/NewYears. “Last year viewers spent 45 minutes on average watching the celebration on MSN Video and this year we are making it even more interactive by giving consumers the opportunity to choose the camera angles and the events to focus on, instantly shaping their New Year’s Eve experience.”
