The youtube app built into the PS3 won't bring it up (its prob not designed to recognise a live broadcast)

1000kbps = 60000kbpm = 60Mbpm = 7.5 Megabytes per minute.  How long was the show, 2.5 hours?  Then, about a gig of data!

I fix stuff!

It was streamed off local Akamai servers, so everyone should have gotten pretty good performance.


Awsome show U2, as usual :)

It should be, it's the same show they play every night!  ;)  Seriously, that is a ridiculous (ly awesome?) stage.
