Thanks remlap. They could possibly be using an internet stream as part of the feed.

And Reuters just cancelled it for technical reasons. Not going well tonight.

Livestream.com is doing okay.

And now in a hold at T-13 due to first stage problems.

No offence to the Russians, but at least they're not using proton rockets.

I wonder if being the first on Falcon-9 is like a 17 year old new driver driving a Ferrari for insurers, can't be cheap for SES.
