For the first time since 2010 “Back to the Mac” event Apple will live stream its keynote on the web: the company has updated Apple Special Event page where the live stream from today’s iPad mini event will start at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Apple has also added a new “Apple Events” icon to the Apple TV home screen. For now, the new channel only offers some past Apple events but it invites users to tune in at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time to watch today’s event live. It’s the first time Apple TV users can watch Apple event live directly on the Apple TV.
Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later. Live streaming video on the web requires Safari 4 or later on Mac OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later.
