For some, April 29 is going to be a very early morning. Canadians excited by tomorrow’s marriage between Prince William and Kate Middleton will be setting alarm clocks and getting up to watch the live ceremony set to start at 5 am EST. And with an expected global audience of 2 billion – or one in every 3.5 people – that amounts to a lot of sleepy people.
But Rogers customers need not worry. At 5 pm on Friday, April 29 and until May 2, you’ll be able to sit in front of the TV, your computer or your tablet and watch the full CBC coverage of the historic nuptials on Rogers on Demand channel 100 or Rogers on Demand Online for free. Not only will you be able to watch the entire wedding ceremony, you’ll also have access special content including pre-wedding events, and post-event highlights which amounts to more than 7 hours of royal wedding content. In addition, Rogers on Demand will have a selection of more than 15 royal themed movies available, starting at $3.99.
If you’re still keen to get up at the crack of dawn and catch the ceremony live, you can tune into Citytv’s coverage of the royal wedding which begins at 5 am EST (4CT/3MT/2PT) on Breakfast Television and continues throughout the day on CityLine, CityNews at Six (Toronto) and the primetime special, Citytv and HELLO! Canada…Your Invitation to the Royal Wedding. Royal wedding coverage will also stream live online at Citytv.com/royalwedding and the Citytv iPad app.
Busy all day April 29? No problem. You can relive Citytv’s full coverage of the Royal Wedding online until July 31.
Will you be watching the Royal Wedding?
