Do you have a Satellite Receiver at home with a Hot Bird reception? Dubai TV and Sama TV broadcast to Europe with that satellite and one of them is covering it.

Otherwise it seams many international news media channel would cover the main show live as well, just as they did with the opening of Atlantis Hotel last year.

De prijs voor een van de 1044 appartementen kan oplopen tot 3 miljoen euro. Daarnaast zijn er luxekantoren, restaurants en een hotel. In de ondergrondse parkeergarage is plaats voor 3000 auto's. Op de 124e verdieping ligt At the Top, het hoogstgelegen uitzichtsplatform ter wereld. Voor de toren staat een fontein die het water meer dan 274 meter omhoog laat schieten, ook een wereldrecord.
Lol this article isnīt right at all. It says the fountain goes 274 meters high, while itīs about 150m, and it says At the Top will be the highest observation deck in the world, which also isnīt true.

True.....It's 'Telegraaf-crap'. I was in Dubai last week and 274 meters is way to high. 150 meters seems OK. But there high I can tell u.....
