How to watch Asteroid Day LIVE

Watching the 24-hour Asteroid Day LIVE broadcast on June 30th couldn’t be easier. You have two main options to watch Asteroid Day LIVE from wherever you are in the world using your computer, tablet, television, or even your smartphone. We have collected them all here for you! View our full line-up of Luxembourg speakers here and view our full schedule, here.

Watch via the Asteroid Day website

The easiest way to watch is certainly via the AsteroidDay.org/live page. The stream will appear on the website’s dedicated live page hours before the broadcast goes live on June 30th at 3.00 AM CET (GMT+2, Central European/Berlin/Paris time).

 Television

Obviously, you can also stream the option above to your Smart TV.

But if you prefer to receive the broadcast more conventionally via satellite, we have got you covered there as well. Thanks to the support of SES, all of Europe will be able to receive the broadcast via satellite – check this map for the exact area covered!

Starting on June 1st you will be able to tune your television to the official Asteroid Day channel where for 24 hours on June 30th you will be able to watch Asteroid Day Live. In the days leading up to this we will broadcast a still image. Once you’ve retuned your TV and receive this image, you will also receive live broadcast on June 30th. To retune your TV go into settings and either ‘retune’ or ‘update’ your channels (the exact procedure depends on the TV’s manufacturer and model). After this process is complete you will be able to find Asteroid Day TV.
