Jay-Z to stream concert on his new YouTube channel

NEW YORK

The rapper announced Thursday his performance at the new Brooklyn sports arena will be live-streamed on Saturday at 9:30 p.m. Eastern time. He says it'll air on his new Life and Times channel.

Jay-Z's new channel is part of an original programming initiative by YouTube, owned by Mountain View, Calif.-based Google Inc. Life and Times promises a lineup of "in depth lifestyle pieces" based on the tastes and interests of Jay-Z.

The rapper is christening the Barclays Center with a weeklong series of shows. The arena is the home of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets, of which Jay-Z is a minority owner.
