Cold and Wet December Day?
No problem. December has been declared U2 Month at DirecTV.
December has been declared U2 Month at DirecTV, four solid hours of U2 progamming, starting with Elevation Live From Boston (a 90 minute cut) and featuring documentaries, videos, interviews and rare footage.
Premiering on Saturday, December 1 at 6:00 AM (ET), "U2 Month" will air on DIRECTV channel 103, 24 hours a day through December 31.
