TED Live 2013 memberships now open, now include iPad mini

Posted by:

A membership to TED Live lets you watch the TED2013 and TEDGlobal 2013 conferences live from the comfort of your home, school or business — and join a global community of conversation around ideas as they happen live. And the TED Live experience has a new component.

Starting today, anyone who registers or renews will receive Apple’s brand new iPad mini*. The mini will be an integral part of the Live experience, streamlining the viewing and offering new ways to interact.

TED2013 takes place Feb 25 to March 1, 2013, near Los Angeles, California (GMT-7) and TEDGlobal will be happening from June 10 to 14, 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland (GMT +1).

Memberships are available for individuals and K-12 schools for $995 and can be shared with 10 people in one place. Higher education and small and medium business memberships are $2500 and can be shared with 50 people in one location. For more information on member levels, head to our website.

Even if you live in a time zone far away from Los Angeles or Edinburgh, you can stream the conference on “tape delay” at your convenience. And a permanent archive of the entire conference is available for you to rewatch at any time.

The iPad mini will be the center of your TEDLive (and TED) experience, by letting you:

  1. Watch the conference live
  2. Beam it to your televisionº
  3. Chat with other members in the TED Live private Facebook group
  4. Watch TEDTalks with the acclaimed free TED app
  5. Read TEDBooks in our free TEDBooks app**
  6. Send in photos and movies during the conference
  7. And, well, do everything else an iPad can do
