Off Topic (kinda): Looking for Live8 telecast USA on July 2

Anyone know of a cable or satellite broadcast in the USA on July 2 of the Live 8 concerts?

We're planning a day-long party on that day a would love to have live video playing on some TV screens.

We have Comcast -- I just called them, and they were, basically, clueless.

Don't really want to do the PC webcast thing, especially for something this big (on my puny computer).

Does anybody know of a definitive live telecast on pay-per-view, BBC America, a satellite provider, etc?

Can't find any info via websearches (except for other countries).

AOLMusic.com will show and play the concert, but they say that Geldoff and others are still trying to seal deals with US networks.
I thought it was July 6th?

Maybe there's still hope for seeing it live if Mr. Geldoff is still in negotiations with US outlets.

Thanks, Scarlett.

The answer came today: it will be on MTV and VH1. Goody!
