Bounce TV to Broadcast Whitney Houston Funeral
Network plans no commercial interruptions in coverage
By Jon Lafayette -- Broadcasting & Cable, 2/16/2012 3:25:09 PM
The new network aimed at African Americans might be the only broadcast outlet to air the funeral uninterrupted. Bounce's coverage will begin at noon ET, 9 a.m. PT.
Houston died at 48 years of age last Saturday, a day before the Grammy Awards. Interest in the singer help attract 39.9 million viewers to the awards broadcast, the second largest audience ever for the Grammys.
Bounce TV, which launched in September, airs 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the digital signals of local television stations. The network targets African Americans between the ages of 25-54 with a programming mix of theatrical motion pictures, live sports, documentaries, specials, inspirational faith-based programs, off-net series, original programming and sports.
I really would like to see the broadcast , however like so many others I did not know the rebroadcast date .Perhaps BOUNCE can do another rebroadcast it so more people can pass the word and be able to see the homegoing of a very special person

Hi..I was also wondering if BounceTv would rebroadcast the late Whitney Houston's funeral? I programmed the dvd recorder for 2 hours and the funeral went over 4 hours, therefore, I missed the other 2 1/2 hours.
Thank you for any information that you may shed on this very important matter.
