    I need a web feed, I have no idea how to get that signal. I have dish network, does that help?

    Someone who has a G4 with streaming server software and a decent internet connection and a Tv signal to firewire converter thingy and some other stuff I know nothing about: Please set up a private stream and let a select few of us follow the event.



    I´m first in line...

    I'm calling around trying to find somebody who knows how to setup a satellite feed... (frustrating, they are mostly dense as bricks...)



    If I CAN get it setup, I will at the very least record the sucker.

    If you have a local Apple Store with a screen call them up and see if they will be showing it. Chances are they will be.



    But...my local store does not, I would have to go to Palo Alto and that is a bit out of the way for me.



    I wish they would stream it via QuickTime...

    Now if I can only get in there a few hours early and setup a quicktime streaming server.....

    I just called up Palo Alto and they said they will be broadcasting the event...so...I cannot see why other Apple Stores with the a screen would not do it

    My Pop has a satellite dish but he lives an hour away. Think it'll be worth a day off from work, an hour ride and dealing with my Mother? hehe

    I would love a QuickTime stream. I mean, they had an audio stream of their earnings report, and that wasn't really all that fun...

    Apple just removed the press release announcing the satellite broadcast....

    (link to pr page )



    This WAS the link to the release



    Why?

    Stranger and stranger. I just called Apple PR (and held for 10 minutes) before being told that no such press release existed. Then after I told her I was holding a printed copy I was put back on hold. After about 30 seconds she came back and said that there was a broadcast, she said she could email me the info. I asked her if it would be posted online and she said it should not be made public.



    Somebody oopsed. I

    'll post the email she is sending me shortly.

    Madbidouille points out that the satelites mentioned in the press release are not being viewable in Europe. Does that mean that there also will be a quicktime stream available?

    The Apple Press release still appears on the PRNewswire.com site from this morning (which is what I pasted in the first post). There is no listing on the Apple PR site however. I wonder if they are planning on webcasting the event after all. That could be the reason for the confusion. Tech TV could also show it if they wanted to. Have to keep an eye on their website as well.

    I guess Apple will introduce an US only music download service, so there is no need for international broadcast \

    You may be right unfortunately. If this is the case, what exactly would stop Apple from launching the service in europe. Isn't my money worth anything to Apple?

    Rights issues to recordings, particularly older ones (up through 1952), may prevent an international debut for the time being. In Europe many recordings are in the Public Domain while in the U.S. they are still under copyright. Also, some artists are on different labels in different territories. I believe this will all be worked out eventually but it is possible that the music service will be North America specific only to start. Only guesses, but the answers are written in the wind my friends, the answers........
