How can we watch the live feed of the test?

LIVE FROM OKLAHOMA, YOUR LIVE FEED VIDEO SUCKS!

That site is in the middle of BFN. I don’t know how anyone could stream anything out of there. Course there’s always one douchebag that thinks he can do better.

Hi ARW,
Besides SpaceFlight Insider’s – there was no live feed. It was challenging to get a feed out of the desert (the site is surrounded by mountains and the internet bandwidth was limited).
Sincerely, Jason Rhian – Editor, SpaceFlight Insider
