For those of us who weren’t lucky enough to get golden tickets or did not get them on purpose, and will be giddily watching WWDC from the comfort of our own homes, Apple has added its promised WWDC channel to Apple TV for viewing the live stream of the conference’s keynote tonight.

The keynote can also be streamed from Apple’s website via Safari on OS X or iOS, or QuickTime 7 on Windows.


The keynote will kick off at 10am PDT today when Tim Cook and other top Apple execs will take the stage at Moscone West Center to reveal the next version of iOS and OS X to the 5,000 developers present.

This year’s keynote is expected to include a peek at iOS 8 and OS X 10.10, in addition to Apple’s new home automation platform. New hardware is also expected to appear at the event — possibly in the form of new iMacs, a 12-inch Retina MacBook Air, or even the long rumoured and eagerly anticipated iWatch.

Given that Eddy Cue recently claimed at the CodeCon that Apple currently has its most exciting product pipeline in 25 years, this could be an event to remember.
