Apple TV’s Special Events Channel Returns Ahead of Today’s Keynote

Apple has already confirmed that it will be live-streaming today’s keynote via, but it seems you’ll also be able to enjoy the show from the comfort of your own living room, with the Apple TV’s Special Events channel reappearing on the set-top box this morning.

The Apple Events channel usually appears just a few hours before an Apple keynote, but it has arrived early this time around. Users should find that the channel pops up automatically when they turn on their Apple TV, but a restart should summon it if it’s still missing on your device.

Apple’s event kicks off at 10 a.m. Pacific today, and it’s taking place at the company’s own Town Hall in Cupertino. In addition to new iPads — which we’ve already seen — recent rumors have suggested we’ll see new Macs, and possibly even an Apple TV refresh.

Apple’s last live stream was for the iPhone 6 keynote back in September, and it didn’t exactly go down too well. The stream was far from stable for most viewers, and even when it was up, Japanese commentary was dubbed over the actual event audio.

Apple — and indeed its fans — will be hoping for a smoother experience this time around.
