'iPad mini' event will be streamed live to Apple TV, Mac & iOS devices

post #1 of 66
Thread Starter 
Apple has added a new channel to its Apple TV set-top box called "Apple Events" that will live stream the company's media briefing today. In addition, the event will also be streamed to iOS devices and Macs.

Users are invited to tune in at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern to watch the "Apple Special Event" live. The presentation will be held at the California Theatre in San Jose.

In addition to a live stream of the event, Apple TV users can also watch Apple's other presentations, including the iPhone 5 unveiling, the 2012 Worldwide Developers Conference, and the introduction of the third-generation iPad with Retina display. Streaming via Apple TV requires a second- or third-generation model with software 5.0.2 or later.

For those on a Mac, the live stream requires Safari 4 or later on OS X 10.6 or later. On iOS devices, Safari on iOS 4.2 or later is required. The stream will be made available on Apple's website.

Apple TV


Apple has on occasion offered live streams of its events, most recently in September of 2010. However, those events were streamed to Mac and iOS devices, not the Apple TV.

A week ago, Apple sent invitations to members of the press inviting them to see "a little more." The company is expected to introduce a new, smaller iPad with a 7.85-inch display.

Also potentially on tap today are new Macs, most prominently a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. The company may also introduce a new version of iBooks, and a revamped version of its iTunes desktop software.

AppleInsider will have full, live coverage of today's event.

I noticed that two hours ago, but I didn't bother posting it here because they never give credit round here and just would have posted a separate story.

 

The new channel is called "Apple Events" btw.

While very good, also very unfortunate for those of us at work and away from their Apple TVs at home.

Stuck this into two other threads.

 

 

I think they really want to "show" us something!

 

Could it be a TV?   Just kidding.  Maybe.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

I'd have to tip that the iPad mini will be available in the same colours as the iPod Touch, and in 16gb and 32gb versions.

Oh man thats awesome. And it's great evening timing for me here in Europe. So I'll buy some crisps on my way home from work. And tune in.

I hope a live stream app shows up in the App Store. Or better yet a live stream link on apple.com

What a great day to be working from home in the afternoon! Will definitely be tuning in!

Yep, definitely one of the bonuses of being a UK Apple fan, all the announcements are at 6pm, so you can watch or read about them live after work.

Ok- now that Hulu plus is up- and iPads have amazon instant, hbo go, and show time. Lets bring those three and a music streamer (pandora, spotify, Etc) to the Apple TV to make it the best by a mile!

If they announce apps for the atv (unlikely)- it'll be the best announcement today!

It started already. Ah well 3 more hours to go, then get home quickly and have a stop at the nearby shop to get beer and chips and startup my appleTV.

There is a new link on the Apple Website so far only on the US localized site.

I don't see the need to restrict this for Mac only on the website. That's stupid.

Mine is suffering all day already. That's the disadvantage of living in Europe. You'll keep looking for stuff regarding the event all day on the Internet.

This reminds me to stay focused on my work. Have to go....

you can also look for it in windows if you have quicktime.

Gotta be out at that time - driving a friend to an appointment and waiting for her. But ... I have an iPad 3rd gen and there's superfast LTE wireless data in our area. That could chew up a lot of data on my plan though. But - there's a library nearby with free open WiFi ... Also a McDonald's if they offer the bandwidth ...

Sure about this? Because it's not clear at all on their webpage.

I actually won't have any problem to watch it, but this restriction for windows users (if there's actually one) is odd.

Dumb question... how do I receive this on my iOS device (iPhone 5)? (Non-WiFi)

Answer: Simply go to Apple's website with your iOS device's Safari browser and click the link on the homepage. duh. Thanks to those that set me straight.

True. It's annoying. Plus one of the two submission features doesn't work. But that's the least of the HTML and scripting problems on this site LOL. I'd just post it in the forums somewhere.

A couple weeks ago I viewed Captain America via Amazon Instant using the "apps" in my Blu-ray player.  The quality was just OK but it was free so no big deal.  This weekend I rented The Avengers on my Apple TV and man the quality was great!  They sure do their "hobby" better than anyone else.  It was very close to Blu-ray quality.

Agreed. Hence my question!

 

Add: here's what the Apple website says: "Live streaming video requires Safari 4 or later on Mac OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later."

Those last two aren't really a thumbs up until you can subscribe directly without a basic cable plan.

Wouldn't hurt for them to up the onboard storage for holding more rentals and more buffer space.

They might add more audio/video stuff but it will never likely be a free for all game

Hopefully they will also change up the UI so you don't have to go to computer to find your stuff cause the big obvious buttons go to the stores. Those should be our stuff/links to match and purchases

Last time they did this the traffic overload killed it for many. They might have upped the servers etc on their end but there's also a likely increase in potential users. So while it seems dumb on your end it could be a necessary evil.

Wait until h.265 comes out. Hopefully they will up the quality rather than use it to keep quality and reduce files (do that with the 720p maybe)

If they can get the studios etc invested in this so we get better quality, pricing, release times etc then this could be great. We also need extras from the DVDs in all films, and they work in iOS, kill this buy in SD can only rent in HD. HD on all titles, fill in missing seasons etc.

I'll add my voice to the concept that seems glaring here ... I want to see what I see on Apple TV available on my iPad! I mean as in the exact same screen I see on my Apple TV on my iPad when I run an App (called Apple TV maybe?) so if I am not at home with my Apple TVs I have the same options on my iPad.

You remind me of the days when I travelled from the UK to the States for every Mac World show, Boston and San Francisco. I used to love the free Mac World magazines (actually they were like massive glossy newspapers back then) they gave out and all the pure adrenalin in Silicon Valley. Visiting Apple HQ was like a pilgrimage lol. It always made me feel like I was living in the last century when I came back to the UK regarding keeping up with Apple and technology in general (not talking about any thing else here, well maybe the weather).

Oh I don't know, I can understand not wanting to support anything but the finest delivery platforms 1smoking.gif Besides maybe hundreds of PCers will rush out and buy a Mac or an Apple TV just so they can watch. 1biggrin.gif
