TechCrunch Disrupt NY will be the first major media conference to stream on Facebook Live in full

We’re excited to announce that we’re using Facebook Live to make Disrupt NY the first major media conference live streamed in its entirety — with TV-quality production — on Facebook. Delivering a real-time video feed of Disrupt to TechCrunch’s more than 2 million Facebook fans is a first for all of us and we can’t wait to see what happens.

We’ll have non-stop coverage of Disrupt on our Facebook page from May 7-11, but we’ll also be embedding a live stream on the front page of from May 9-11 (9 a.m.-6 p.m. ET). The feed will be easy to find and, more importantly, it will be easy to share.
