DISCLAIMER: I cannot confirm this will work with the keynote stream. I can't get videos on Apple's site to work, but videos from other sites work fine. Hopefully the keynote will work.

Surprisingly, it's very easy to setup:

#1: Download and install any iTunes that includes Bonjour (you'll need Bonjour, not iTunes)
http://www.apple.com/itunes/

#2: Download and install XBMC:
Windows: http://mirrors.xbmc.org/releases/win32/xbmc-12.2.exe

#3: Open XBMC > System > Services > Airplay > Check "Allow XBMC to accept Airplay content" (enter the user pass only if needed)

Watching the keynote

#1 - Open XBMC

#2 - Go to the keynote on your iOS device : http://www.apple.com/apple-events/june-2013/

#3 - Once the video starts playing on your iPhone or iPad, you should see the "Airplay" icon. Tap the icon and enjoy!

Enjoy.

From Apple's website:

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.
