I don't think you're going to see the wedding aired, either live or tape-delayed on any of the major US networks. They may send correspondents over to report on it, but I don't think you're going to see any NBC cameras or ABC cameras in the Abbey. Diana's funeral was somewhat of an anomaly, in that this was an extremely powerful and famous figure who died, and as such there was no way it wouldn't be aired live. For example, if something were to happen to Barack Obama, I would fully expect the funeral and such to be aired live around the world, rather than just in the United States.

Did ABC or NBC air Andrew and Fergie's wedding if so I can't see why they wouldn't air William and Kate's. CTV last night on the late night news confirmed they will air the wedding live. Did any other networks besides FOX News air Edward and Sophie's wedding? Charles and Camilla from what I recall were broadcast on major networks weren't they or am I going crazy?

I disagree, I think they'll show it for sure and the very least CNN will.... It'll all be same shots from 1 angle, like the funeral.... It's projected to be the most watched TV event so I think the networks will be in on it... Wasn't there an article somewhere that said one of the networks wants Paul Burrel to commentate?

Everything is projected to be the most-watched TV event, but you have to realize that if the wedding starts at 11am London time (for example), that's 6am EST, 3am PST. That's rather early for us Americanos to get up to watch TV. Granted some people will do it anyway, but will that be enough of a demographic shift to warrant sending camera crews over? No station is going to take a financial hit on something not enough people are going to watch.

Live streams on the internet are a different story. If the BBC or any other UK stations set them up so that people from outside their territory can watch, that would be better as it allows everyone to watch who wants to, but doesn't end up costing networks money.

True- I guess we will see but I will defininatly confirm at least 1 network has it live before I get up at 3am lol :) Still think at least CNN or Fox will cover- another thread said Fox asked Burell to comment so they planning to air it and this websites says 'major US networks'

I know NBC has hinted about airing the wedding. Meredith Viera and Matt Lauer (The Today Show) have already confirmed they'll be in London covering the event, so I think we may very well see it. Now whether they'll air it live I have no clue.

I know that Charles and Diana's wedding was broadcast live because I had forgotten all about it and we were at the beach and someone turned on the TV and there it was!! I would suspect at that time and locations it was also a major, non cable network in the US. So, I do expect that we will see it live.

I heard that NBC was sending Matt Lauer and Meredith Viera over to cover the wedding, which means it will be shown (maybe using someone else's feed, I don't know if there's one feed that is used by everyone or not). I also heard that Katie Couric was headed over for CBS. ABC won't be left out. I'll keep looking to find where I heard the first two, but here's some idea of the interest:

TV network news rushing to cover royal engagement

Piers Morgan's new CNN show will also originate from London for the entire week surrounding the wedding to cover the story.

Piers Morgan will open show with Winfrey - pressofAtlanticCity.com: Arts & Entertainment

eta: As I'm searching, I'm finding that most networks have special Royal Wedding sites:
http://www.cnn.org/SPECIALS/2011/royal.wedding/
http://windsorknot.todayshow.com/
http://www.cbsnews.com/2718-207_162-982.html
http://abcnews.go.com/International/Royal_Wedding

Maybe Amanda Holden will be covering for CBS?: http://www.digitalspy.com/ustv/news/...g-for-cbs.html

Also, it seems video of the Westminster Abbey ceremony will likely be made available free to accredited broadcasters around the world. This article states: "BBC, ITV and Sky News are all planning live coverage, as are a host of broadcasters in the U.S. and around the world. But despite the high tune-in, the Royal Wedding — in 3D or not — likely won't generate a huge payday for broadcasters because the event will air live."

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/404413...-today_people/

I'll keep looking...

I doubt she'll be doing anything, she'll be 9 months pregnant.

They haven't made any announcements yet as far as I can tell, but it wouldn't surprise me either way (I'd guess that they will, since they're billing themselves as "home of the royal wedding" on Facebook). However, I think BBC America has to bid like every other channel for the rights to distribute programming in the US, and it usually airs the BBC World coverage of events (which is often interspersed with news updates and commercials). For Charles and Camilla's wedding in 2005, another channel (I think Women's Entertainment) bought the rights to air the uninterrupted BBC1 coverage.

The wedding will be covered live in australia, in the Herald Sun today an article (just an extract) "The wedding will take place on Friday, April 29 at 11am, or 8pm for those of us here in Victoria. And such is the supposedly feverish local interest in their nuptials that discussions are already being held about rescheduling AFL and NRL matches due to be played that night.....".

I'll wager 1 yrs pay it will be on at least 1 major network as well as several other cable networks. I was 16 when Diana married Charles and I got up at 5:00 to see it. saying that not many people will watch is just plain silly IMO

I won't take that bet!
I'm sure there will be wide TV coverage in the USA, early hours or no early hours.
