Discussion in 'Naval Academy - USNA' started by agolson, May 20, 2010.
Will USNA graduation ceremony be televised? If so what channel?
It will be on a local Comcast channel in the Annapolis/Baltimore/DC area. We usually have to page through the screen guide to find it.
I know last year it was on C-SPAN. I'm not sure if that is normal or simply because President Obama was the speaker.
I did receive the following email about it being broadcast on-line via usna.edu.
USNA will be web streaming this year’s graduation live on May 28th. The link can be found at www.usna.edu however it will not be active until the morning of graduation around 8:45 am.
Live streaming will begin around 8:50 when the Class begins their procession into the stadium and will end shortly after the hat toss.
This video will be available for viewing for approximately 1 week using the same graduation webstream link mentioned above. After that time you will be able to download portions of the graduation from usna.edu or usna.com.
Computer requirements will be a minimum of Windows XP and a current version of Windows Media Player, same with Mac computers.
There will be Commissioning Week videos available for purchase and that information will be sent home to all 1/C families. This video will not include the entire graduation only commissioning week events.
Check the Naval Academy Alumni site for information on the broadcast; they have broadcast the ceremony in the past and often have it available for replay for several days after the event.
The last few years it was on the Pentagon Channel, if I am not mistaken ir starts at 1000 hours, Friday.
Blue Angels Flight Demonstration
For some reason the forum won't let me post on the thread about the Blue Angels Flight Demonstration so I'll try to get an answer here (thanks). We were wondering how the viewing of the show is from the other side of the Severn at the Naval Station. Anyone got any insight on that? We'll be staying over there and not having to get in the car, drive & park would probably be more convenient, but we don't want to diminish the experience of the show. Thanks for any info.
