Michael Jackson memorial: where to watch online

Wanna be streamin' something?

Today's Michael Jackson memorial service in LA is expected to be the biggest event in internet history.

There are fears that the surge in demand will even crash some servers. When Jackson died, Google even thought it was under attack due to the millions of users searching for 'Michael Jackson'.

The memorial is being shown live by numerous TV companies worldwide, and approximately 50 cinemas across the US are planning to broadcast the memorial live, for free. It will also be relayed to big screens across the UK, Australia and Hong Kong.
