Daily Tip: How to watch the Royal Wedding live on your iPhone, iPad
Wondering how to watch the Royal Wedding on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad? The Royal Wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton takes place on Friday April 29 at Westminster Abbey, London, England. The event will have huge interest around the world. The problem is, what are you going to do if you want to see it all, but can’t get in front of a television? Well as long as you have your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and a reliable data connection; that’s all you’re going to need. There are a couple of options, read on and we will tell you all you need to know to enjoy the big day!
The Royal Wedding Live Stream
The Royal Wedding Live Stream is going to be your first port of call as this is the only official way to watch. This stream will be available internationally and is a YouTube hosted live stream. The coverage will start 10am UK time and will last for four hours, all live. It will cover the ceremony at Westminster Abbey, the procession to Buckingham Palace, and the newlyweds’ appearance on the palace balcony for an expected first public kiss. William’s press office will also provide a live blog providing commentary and historical information as well as additional footage.
TV Catchup (UK Only)
This we believe is a UK only service that streams free-to-air TV channels. You can stream BBC and ITV who will both be showing all the build up and ceremony.
You can access the TV Catchup service on your iPhone [iPhone Link] and there is also a higher quality stream for the iPad [iPad Link]. You need to sign up for a free account, once you have done that, you can stream the required TV stations and enjoy all the celebrations.
That should be all you need to enjoy The Royal Wedding visually. If you can’t stream any of the live video, you can still keep up to date on what’s happening. There is an official Twitter stream and a dedicated Facebook page; which will be updated as events unfold.
There is also a plethora of apps available in the app store now. These all vary in price and most include all the build up to the big day, we are not aware however of any that will offer a live video stream of the event.
