Tumblr is getting into the live video business. At least, it certainly looks like it.

TechCrunch spotted a mysterious livevideo.tumblr.com blog, which is replete with cryptic posts about upcoming livestreams for tomorrow, June 21. Some choice messages include:

  • “We will broadcast live from the surface of Mars”
  • “We will inflate a very big thing in a very small room”
  • “A Harlem Globetrotter will teach you how to basketball”

Each is set occur to occur a different time around 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM EST. If true, it seems Tumblr is launching its live video feature with an onslaught of pre-arranged live video streams to get the ball rolling.

While Tumblr has not confirmed the report, with YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon (via Twitch) already in on Livestreaming, it seems like it’s only a matter of time anyway. In any case, we’ll keep our eyes tuned for tomorrow.
