No Pivot, No worries, you can still Hit Play on Hit RECord On TV! < Streaming

Originally announced by Regular Joe last March, recent news about new variety show hitRECord on TV! is that fledging Pay TV channel Pivot has renewed it for a second season before it has even premiered.  In case you are not familiar with hitRECord, here’s the network’s pitch:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has collaborated with thousands of artists from around the world to create a new kind of television variety show featuring short films, live performances, music, animation, conversation, and of course, more!

Now, where do you find Pivot?  That may be your real challenge.  Like most new networks (it premiered in August here in NY), it has an uphill climb getting distribution from MSOs.  They are  providing a live linear version, but that still requires you to be an existing, paying customer.  Even thought the web site states “PivotTV Is FREE With Your Cable Subscription” the site and the iOS app currently only display two options

  • Dish Network
  • DirecTV

What is the good news then?  You can watch the premier episode for free, regardless of pay TV provider.  Happy viewing!
