Apple will be live streaming today’s iPad event to Apple TV owners via a new “Apple Events” app. MacRumors reports that a number of users have noticed a new app or channel for Apple Events was remotely added to the Apple TV home screen, and can already be used to stream previous Apple event keynotes.

We expect Apple to offer the live tream on its website, though the announcement and page for the stream are not yet live.

Apple has provided live streams of several events, however it did not offer the live stream of last month’s iPhone event. It also makes the keynote video available a few hours after the event ends. The last time Apple offered the live stream was the WWDC 2013 Keynote, which was held in June. It also provided the live stream of last year’s iPad event.
