Looks like somebody on Reddit leaked the unlisted webcast link. Note it currently says "Launch webcast" and not "hosted" or "technical". EDIT: It's linked from the SpaceX website, not leaked. Still unlisted on youtube, though.

Looks like somebody on Reddit leaked the unlisted webcast link. Note it currently says "Launch webcast" and not "hosted" or "technical".



If you look at http://www.spacex.com/webcast then you'll see only that one link.
Based on prior experience that means there will only be the one webcast stream.
If I had to guess, it will be of the "hosted" variety.
Recent norms have been that there would be two links [hosted and technical] appearing a couple of days before a scheduled launch.

Mods: not certain if this qualifies for Updates or if I should have put it in Discussion for NROL-79 - move as appropriate.
