    Since we all know that about 85% of us are expecting a lot from today's event especially for Windows Phone, it is safe to assume, we are all going to try and glue ourselves either the live blog here or live feed straight from Microsoft. I'm going to work "overtime" at work and enjoy the stream at 80kbps broadband speed.. what about you guys? ;)

    It will be 5pm GMT, so my boss will be impressed to see me working late ;)

    It's happening at 5pm UK time and I'll be on my commute home. I'll have to catch up afterwards.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the live stream, since I'm going to be on a business dinner at that time. So my hope is that someone will upload the entire event to YouTube, so I can sit on my couch and watch it on YouTube through my Xbox One when I get back home.

    Headed in early today to fix someone's system and just hoping no one calls during the time frame. Will be split between watching the live show and the addendums on the twit.tv network.

    According to the Microsoft press release the event will be available to stream afterwards so you shouldn't have too much of an issue. Should be posted at the same location as the live view.

    It will be hosted for offline viewing on the same page.

    In this case I just hope they're going to provide an HTML5 video this time. IE on the Xbox doesn't support Flash nor Silverlight. :) But I could just share it from my Surface Pro 3 to my Xbox in this case I guess.

    I'm assuming the only reason you want it on Xbox is because its connected to a giant 60 inches TV and you like Satya's hairstyle on huge screen?

    It's only a 46" screen and only HD ready. But it's more comfortable to look at than a 12" tablet. ;) At least for a longer time.

    Going from last year's experience - no. But you never know. It will most likely be HTML5 stream so may be Lumia can. But if it is Flash - you are out of luck.

    MS is usually streaming using Silverlight. I don't remember any Flash based stream by MS. :) But I hope for HTML5 as well.

    I am sure someone in the team has to realise that people with Lumias can't watch their stream and it is better to reach as many peeps are possible esp to have their #WINDOWS10 hashtag trending!

    Totally sad, it's not even near trend yet. But good to see them trying to get the hashtag around since this morning!

    It's confirmed. It's streaming using Adobe Flash. Try loading the video from your browser and right click the video.

    Yes. I started it on my Lumia 920, Nexus 6, Internet Explorer 11 & Chrome on a PC, and VLC on a PC. So far I haven't found a configuration it hasn't worked on.
