The next four Galileo satellites are scheduled for launch tomorrow 12 December at 18:36 GMT (19:36 CET, 15:36 local time) from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana atop an Ariane 5 rocket.

This launch will bring the total Galileo constellation to 22, boosting the global availability of navigation signals. Galileo began initial services on 15 December 2016, the first step towards full operations.

In cooperation with Arianespace, ESA TV provides broadcasters with free live videostream of the launch. More information can be found at this link.

ESA’s Portal will also cover the launch live here, providing the web stream and updates of the launch.
