Apple has released details for how to watch next week’s Macworld Expo keynote address, even if you’re not going to be there. In addition to the QuickTime Webcast info MacCentral brought you earlier today, there’s information about the satellite simulcast as well.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs will open next week’s Macworld Conference & Expo at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif. Typically Jobs’ keynote events are memorable occasions where new Apple hardware and software are introduced for the first time. Jobs’ keynote remarks often frame the message from Apple for the rest of the show, and often weeks or months beyond as well.

This year’s keynote address is scheduled to take place a day earlier than it has in past years — the keynote event is scheduled to take place in the Esplanade Ballroom at 9 a.m. Pacific Time on Monday, January 7th. Apple is adding fuel to the fire of speculation that has developed around the earlier-than-anticipated keynote by promising that “This [Macworld Expo] is big, even by our standards” and that Mac users should “Count on being blown away.”
If you’re not going to be at the show and don’t have access to a QuickTime-equipped computer that can view the event’s Webcast, you may still be in luck. If you have access to satellite TV transmissions, the keynote presentation will also be available via satellite:
