Just got some news: tomorrow's Michael Jackson memorial
is going to be broadcast live in 720p Smooth Streaming by Sympatico / MSN inMusic
. The feed is originating from Canada, but is not georestricted! I think this is the first globally available Live HD Smooth Streaming event.
The event kicks off at 10am Pacific Daylight Time (GMT -8). It will hopefully be up as on-demand for 24 hours after, but we're still confirming the rights for that.
Check back tomorrow AM for any updates.
P.S. The Tour de France
is also doing Live HD Smooth Streaming, following the success of the French Open. It's georestricted to France, alas.
