    ...are a joke:

    Requirements: Live streaming uses Apple’s HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology. HLS requires an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Safari on iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with Safari 6.0.5 or later on OS X v10.8.5 or later, or a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. Streaming via Apple TV requires a second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.

    Seriously? I need Windows 10 to view the Live Apple Stream on a PC? I know Apple doesn't want you watching on a PC, but sheesh. That's a little over-stingy, even coming from Apple.

    Yep it has been exclusive to Apple. Surprised it is on Win 10!

    Reminiscent of when people find out that an airplane actually has wifi, then proceed to immediately start complaining about it. :)

    "the other side" should be grateful they're even allowed to peek. :p

    Just open VLC and use the stream URL:

    Code:

    Works fine for me, watching it right now, though I am using a Mac. It should work through VLC nonetheless.

    I have Windows 10, but I'll never use Edge. So I'm watching the event on my 6+

    Isn't the point of a sales pitch to have as many people hear it as possible? I've never understood why Apple would want to limit who can see their keynote. It's like they're saying, "we're so awesome, we don't even care if you know what we're selling". :p
