Website Unveils Plan to Stream Royal Wedding Live YouTube
A major website is joining in on the royal wedding frenzy, announcing plans for a live stream of the nuptials between Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton, according to the site.
The site is YouTube, which will join a wide range of U.S. broadcast and cable outlets in covering the event, with CNN alone placing 125 reporters in London, as previously reported.
YouTube, which is owned by Google, notes that Google search trends show that the U.S. and U.K., predictably, are among the top 10 countries searching for "Royal Wedding,” along with less obvious countries such as Singapore and the Philippines.
YouTube will start streaming the wedding at 5 a.m. ET on Friday, April 29, and will follow the procession, marriage ceremony and balcony kiss, along with a live blog commentary on the events, the site notes.
