There's a way to watch the 'iPad mini' event live
*UPDATE: It looks like the event will also be livestreamed on Apple's website. However, the fine print does make it sound as if only Mac and iOS users will be able to watch it. There's still some hope left for Windows users, but we can't know for sure until the thing has started.

Apple usually doesn't stream the media events where it reveals its latest and greatest inventions, however, the one that's going to take place today, the iPad mini event, will be an exception to the rule, maybe even the first of many.

Unfortunately, the event won't be streamed through any of the typical channels we know, but will be broadcast on Apple TV. That's right, if you want to watch this live event, you need to own the Apple TV. Apple has officially confirmed that a new Apple Events app is now being rolled out to Apple TVs around the world, and inside it, people can now find the "Apple Special Event - Live" entry, which, as you may guess, is no other but today's event.

Those who own an Apple TV should tune in at about 10AM Pacific, 1PM Eastern, 7PM Central European (or 5PM GMT). If the Apple Events app doesn't show up, make sure that the device is connected to the Internet and wait for a few minutes - it should appear.

So far, we're not aware of other channels where the event might be streamed, but if we find something you'll be the first to know. Stay tuned for our in-depth coverage of the event and the new device/s!
