Live from TEDGlobal TED Conferences

How to watch TED Live

Posted by:


TED Live doesn’t require finding a good seat in the auditorium. With a TED Live membership, you can watch TED2013 and TEDGlobal 2013 from the comfort of your home, share it with your classmates or screen it with your co-workers in the office. In other words, there is no one way to watch.

You can grab some friends and gather around a laptop, like this group of TEDsters watching TEDGlobal 2012.


Or you can project it on a big screen, and accompany it with delicious snacks, like the attendees of the Duarte Design viewing party in Mountain View, California.


This group in Sistole, Colombia, got in the spirit by spelling out ‘TED’ before watching.


Or you can watch TED Live with cake, like these TED enthusiasts in Lisboa, Portugal.


Toker + Associates spelled ‘TED’ out of everyday objects during a screening party in Calgary, Canada.


Or you watch at home. We love how Susan Macaulay set up a TEDGlobal screening on her bike.

TED2013 will take place Feb. 25 to March 1 and TEDGlobal 2013 will be going down from June 10 to 14. With TED Live, you can watch everything as it unfolds in real time — but then again, you don’t have to. If you live in another time zone, you can take advantage of the “tape delay,” and you’ll also have access to the permanent archive, for rewatching the talks that just get you.

TED Live memberships are available for individuals, K-12 schools, higher education institutions and businesses.  With each membership comes an iPad Mini* to stream the conference, access the private Live Facebook group, and download TED Books. For more information, head to our website >>
