Heads Up: Bill Maher free live-stream LIVE special "Crazy Stupid Politics" tonight at 10:30pm ET

Last edited Thu Feb 23, 2012, 10:27 PM - Edit history (2)


FREE Bill Maher SPECIAL titled #CrazyStupidPolitics: Thursday February 23rd 10:30pm ET - live-streamed on Yahoo!
(with a mindblowing announcement at the end)

Looks like it will live-stream at 10:30 ET here: http://screen.yahoo.com/crazystupidpolitics/
Note the count-down clock on the link above.

p.s. If you opened the window up earlier in the day then be sure to REFRESH the page.

Enjoy

3. I'm not familiar with Yahoo's live stream.

It says to get started, you have to first log into Facebook. Is that to watch or to be able to comment?

4. No, I think you need to do NOTHING except click on the big play button at 10:30pm ET


that 'get started' button is for folks that want to find 'friends' and set up an account,
you shouldn't have to do that to watch the live-stream LIVE event.

Edited to add: Might have to refresh the page at 10:30pm ET first but I don't know for sure,
I've never watched anything live on Yahoo before.

5. Thanks! I will give it a try, then.

Good point about refreshing the page. I'll leave it in its tab and then refresh it at 10:30 just to be sure.

11. Am I the only one who can't get this to stream for more than 10 seconds without locking up?

Yahoo may have overestimated their capacity (I am on a T3).

I never get to hear Bill live

I hope this goes on Youtube later.

15. It auto-restarted for me about 20 minutes in and is a little bit better now

just running late.

They are launching this service tonight from what the page said. Likely they were overwhelmed with what the streaming was going to do to their resources.

That said, Tx4Obama was the only source I saw promoting this. I don't have HBO and didn't see it elsewhere on the web this week.

Sounds like they have some work do to before they go live. LOL

20. I just happened to find out about it when I was reading an article that Maher posted on HuffPo


otherwise I wouldn't have known about it either.

Here's the HuffPo article I read this afternoon:

19. That was a cute way of presenting it

by talking about how it is the best investment he can make to keep in hopes of keeping what he has left for fear the 50% batshit insane vote the clown car into office.

The first half hour or so was really mangled last night. I hope their engineers get that all straightened out soon. This looks like its going to be cool.
