How (you could have watched) live broadcasts

There will be several live broadcasts throughout the day (technology willing!). These broadcasts will go out simultaneously on:

The best way to watch live broadcasts

However for the best experience, we recommend using Periscope.  For the uninitiated, here’s how to do it:

  1. Follow @attacats twitter account on twitter (you’ll need a twitter account)
  2. On your smartphone install the Periscope app (Android or iPhone)
  3. Open up the Periscope app and when asked enable notifications

The advantage of this method is that you’ll get a notified on your smartphone as soon as we go live thus ensuring you don’t miss a thing!  With the other methods, you’ll have to be in the right place at the right time.

Missed a live broadcast? They’ll all be in the live reporting feed.
