VIDZONE UPDATE: Easter Video Eggstravaganza

21 9

I know I’m certainly not the first… and will not be the last person to use that terrible TERRIBLE pun… but I defy you to not do the same given the same opportunity… and let’s be honest… I have come up with worse in my time doing this blog I’m sure you agree.

We have got a whole host of things for you this week (as usual!). Interviews (Paloma Faith), Easter Features and Sexy Playlists as well as appearances from Kate (Nash), Amy (MacDonald) and Ke$ha (???!)… I am unaware of her surname… although I have a sneaking suspicion Ke$ha might not be her first name due to that dollar sign… just a hunch.

You ready?… you sure?… haven’t forgotten anything?… sure you’re sure?… Ok ok… let’s go!

Paloma Faith Interview

You ever wanted to know what Miss Faith has to say for herself… She has always seemed like an interesting “cat” in my eyes, and turns out I’m right… Watch the EXCLUSIVE interview here.

  • Hi Ben – anyway to get this update without installing the theft update?

  • Hey Ben,

    A question; Why don’t we have “Telephone” from Lady GaGa in the Netherlands? We have 7 other video’s but not that one….

    Happy easter!!! :)

  • Hello Ben,
    I’ve been a big fan of vidzone since it was launched last June.
    Great playlists most notably the darksiders and enjoying the latest holiday hits. But my experience of vidzone was not the same last night, after every couple of songs I kept getting the lord of the rings blu-ray advert and at times nearly after every song i played. I don’t mind adverts popping up whilst the songs are on, but it was so repetitive and ruined it for me, and the advert being so much louder than the songs. At least it should run on a timer like spotify so every 15minutes there will be an advert. If I wanted to have a party around with my own created playlist, the last thing i need is a advert every 5 mins, please fix this and keep up the good work. Anyone else experiencing this???
    I doubt i will get a response until after easter so have a good one, and hopefully this problem gets resolved.
    Thanks

    • Hey apples89

      After every video shouldn’t be the case, and not the same advert.

      We will take a look and see what went wrong. Apologies.

      Ben

  • When POLAND???!!!!!

  • hi i love vidzone but i seem to have a problem when skipping tracks when i press skip the next video never loads also have the same problem when i click play now and all i get is the buffering screen. plz fix this so i can use vidzone again ps i have tried deleting and reinstalling vidzone and it didnt make a difference
    thnx a lot :D

  • nice holiday Ben,

    when would it be possible to play your own playlist “random” by the press of a button.
    this would stop starting my day with a rickroll but at random i still get rickrolled :)

    • Hi S-Cript

      Hahahahahahahaha.. you want to rickroll yourself… classic… I will mention it to our dev team that we should add a dedicated rickroll button…

      Seriously though… You can randomise your now playing by clicking triangle on “now playing” item on the main menu and selecting shuffle. So just queue up your playlist do the above and you are good to go… in other words… instant random rickrolling.

      Hope this helps

      Ben

  • When will VidZone in the Czech Republic????????

  • Hey Ben, great update, one problem though, I keep getting the damn LOTR Blu-ray advert after EVERY music video, is this a bug?

    • Hi Rick_X

      Thanks for the heads up… We are looking into this now. I don’t suppose you could check (at the next convienient moment of course) now to see if you are still having the issue and email ps-problems@vidzone.tv with the outcome that would be great!

      Cheers

      Ben

  • thanks Ben for the response, as ‘rick_x’ states above similar problems, it was the only advert I saw all night, and at best after every 2nd song, but quite often after each, I played 10 songs there was about 8 lord of the rings adverts. Cheers

    • Hi apples89

      As I said above…

      Thanks for the heads up… We are looking into this now. I don’t suppose you could check (at the next convienient moment of course) now to see if you are still having the issue and email ps-problems@vidzone.tv with the outcome that would be great!

      Cheers
