First Ever Live Concert Streamed Live To The iPhone.
At 9:00 PM Pacific Time, Apple will stream its first-ever live concert to the iPhone. The concert is by an Electronica / Ambient / Experimental band called Underworld from United KingdomApple has its own HTTP streaming protocol which uses adaptive bitrates to deliver a continuous smooth stream in varying network conditions which was released in June. So I guess the AT&T network, and the O2 network where the band came from might handle the load without much trouble. Then again it is AT&T, I will know tonight!
So fire up your iPhone and surf to iphone.akamai.com or underworldlive.com with safari browser. The concert is free.
