Great news for those following along at home: Apple is streaming video of today’s event live. And it gets better. As Peter Cohen points out, you can watch the live stream via a new channel on your Apple TV:

If you’re near a newer Apple TV, though, you may be able to watch the event yourself. Apple recently added a new “Apple Events” channel to the device, and that channel now lists “Apple Special Event — LIVE.” If you’re using a black Apple TV, make sure it’s running the latest software update to see the new channel and the content therein (software update 5.0.2 or later is needed).

If you can’t watch live, or if the stream gets bogged down, then Ryan Block’s liveblog coverage on gdgt is the second-best thing.
