As with all EVAs, they are very intense on coverage requirements. It is a good idea to always have a few people covering at all times, so even if you can only put in 30 minutes coverage, it will be appreciated as part of a group effort.

From yesterday's NASA blog:

During Sunday’s spacewalk, Virts and Wilmore will deploy 400 feet of cable along the truss of the station and install antennas as part of the new Common Communications for Visiting Vehicles system that will provide rendezvous and navigational data to visiting vehicles approaching the station, including the new U.S. commercial crew vehicles.
 
NASA TV coverage Sunday will begin at 6 a.m. EST. The spacewalk will begin around 7:10 a.m. and is expected to last about 6 hours, 45 minutes. NASA TV is available online at http://www.nasa.gov/nasatv.
