    wow total dick move by Tesla. Although I have a MS I wanted to watch the model 3 event tonight online.

    Turns out you have to make a deposit to watch.

    Really disappointed in Tesla.

    I am wondering the same thing. Nothing but a blank, black screen, and a place to put in your credit card.

    Please explain, I'm on the website. After asking for some basic information it takes me to another page to make a reservation?

    Then how do you watch it?

    I was just at the site and it say for me to check my email if I already have a reservation. I already have a reservation but no email. I have found no link to go straight to watching the event... unless it will just start at the start time and no action is needed.

    Can they really be that dumb to try to boost numbers or just that dumb to set up the site to force you to make a reservation the night you want to watch. WTF?

    Well now it's gone and when it was there it just went to the next page where it wanted you to put in information and actually reserve a the car I didn't see any link to continue on to just watch. When you click on the button to watch event it said you had enter your name and email. Now it's gone altogether. ???

    Okay finally shows a video on the second page that asks for the reservation info. Why didn't somebody just say that?

    You are incorrect. I watched the stream in the website, all I had to do was to input my name and email, could have faked those too. I did not need to perform a reservation.
