VH1 Digital Grooves Into 2007 With New Installments of Its 'Box Set' and 'Live@Vh1.Com' Series


PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 11 -- VH1's "Box Set," a made-for- broadband original music program, is migrating to VH1's linear channel this month for the first time with "Box Set: Gwen Stefani," a music retrospective that includes a compilation of the artist's music videos, performances, and exclusive interview clips. "Box Set: Gwen Stefani" will premiere on VH1 on Wednesday, January 24 at 11 PM*. It will also be available on demand on VSPOT, VH1's broadband channel beginning the same day.

"Box Set" joins other VH1 music series and programs such as "You Oughta Know," "Hear Music First," and "Live@VH1.com" in the growing list of VH1's made-for-broadband franchises that have made the uncommon shift from online to on-air. Included in "Box Set: Gwen Stefani" are exclusive, never-before-seen interview clips of the artist as she walks through the videos she's created as a solo artist, including the latest hits from her second solo album, The Sweet Escape (Interscope).

VH1's in-studio performance series "Live@VH1.com" kicks off the new year with "Live@VH1.com: Norah Jones," launching on VSPOT on January 16. The Grammy-winning artist will perform acoustic versions of "Little Room," "Until The End," "Thinking About You," and "Sinking Soon" -- four songs from her upcoming third album, Not Too Late (Blue Note). Additionally, beginning January 23, fans can stream Norah Jones' Not Too Late in its entirety, exclusively on VH1.com through its "Hear Music First" program, one week before the album is released.
