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.
