A week before its official release on glorious bluray, Roger Waters epic Us+Them concert film is to be broadcast on Sky Arts in the UK. It is not the full version of course, it is an edited down director’s cut (I’m not funny enough to think of a joke linking that to the final cut album you try) but it is broadcast at 9PM GMT in the UK for free.

As a UK person I actually had no idea that Sky Arts had come to Freeview – it is usually a subscription channel as far as I know. They often feature lots of Pink Floyd content and have broadcast plenty over the years.

In addition to the main prize at 9PM, they are also broadcasting lots of other goodies from 6:30pm so have you dinner, get a brew and tuck in!

How do I get Sky Arts for Free?

Sky Arts is now available on channel 11 and through Freeview Play. You’ll need to retune your TV or set top box to update your channels and watch Sky Arts. You will want to do that today rather than leaving it to the last minute to avoid any increase in blood pressure beyond healthy parameters! How to return my TV????

I had the good fortune of watching this amazing concert at the Echo Arena in Liverpool (my review, pics and video). Absolutely loved the show. The visuals and theatre of it was magnificent. Combined with a great live performance, this recording is a must have.

Pulse – a live show with lots of energy and a favourite amongst fans. It showcased The Division Bell album, and is a greatest hits show with a great looking stage

Pink Floyd Live in Pompeii – this 1972 classic is set in an amphitheatre in Pompeii and features early material from the band. It is a documentary interspersed with live performances. There is a famous scene with Nick Mason and a certain pie! Take it easy, Nick!

Pink Floyd 1970 KQED TV Broadcast – a favourite amongst collectors of Pink Floyd bootleg recordings, this hour long show filmed for broadcast at Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, is a treat for the ears

Coronavirus Lockdown Response

It is nice to see what people are doing in response to the Coronavirus pandemic in terms of helping people get through it. The social isolation people are going through to reduce the spread of the virus will be making people stair crazy so it is great Pink Floyd is making these videos available for people to watch. Even if you already have all these DVD’s, it is a nice opportunity to start watch parties on Facebook and to stir up discussion about the videos and recordings on the Pink Floyd Forum.

Talking about discussion, David Gilmour and Polly Samson have of course been airing at 8:30pm GMT on their Facebook live streaming taking questions from fans, reading from Polly’s new book, and playing some new music and covers. All good fun. Romany Gilmour has also been treating us to her harp playing skills even though she is only on lesson 6.

How Do I Watch Pink Floyd Free DVD Streams?

You can watch on Pink Floyd’s official YouTube channel. The first video Pulse premiers today at 5pm GMT. I will also be posting the videos on this page up above.
