Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Alpha Rollout Plan

When will Odyssey show up in my account for downloading. I checked just now, and it isn't there (with about 10 minutes for it to, hopefully, go live, it isn't available).

EDIT: Just saw that it will be going live a few hours later now.

Rollout has been pushed back a couple of hours, to 13:00 UTC (14:00 BST)

 
They tried that but it took too long.

True .. the ship is longer than the Empire State Building is tall I understand, and even King Kong took ages to climb that.
Of course if they hadn't shot King Kong with various bi-planes, they could have got him to sit on the stern, to free the bow ....
So short sighted.
 
JUST A SMALL TIP FOR THOSE WHO MET THE SAME ISSUE AS I MET: "DONT KNOW HOW TO LAUNCH THE ALPHA TEST"
IF YOU USED FRONITER ACCOUNT TO LAUNCH AND YOU BOUGHT THE PRE-ODER ALPHA TEST EXPANSION FROM STEAM, YOUR LAUNCHER PROBABLY ONLY PRESENT THE PREVIOUS DLC LIKE:
ELITE DANGEROUS
ELITE DANGEROUS: HORIZONS
...
AND IF YOU CANNOT FIND THE ALPHA TEST, JUST LOG OUT FROM YOU LAUNCHER(FRONTIER ACCOUNT), AND CHOOSE TO LOG IN BY YOUR STEAM ACCOUNT, THEN LINK YOUR STEAM ACCOUNT TO YOUR FRONTIER ACCOUNT. DONE!
(PS: SORRY FOR MY ROUGH ENGLISH TAPPING :)
 
Are we allowed to Stream Alpha footage take screenshots etc? In the middle of downloading the content atm.

But havn't seen any worded restrictions thus far but am wanting to do Frontier right.

Can confirm this works.

but if you already have your steam account linked you can try also just restarting your launcher 2 times and it will show.

Good News !!
I have a question regarding the purchase of the standard ODYSSEY version. I pre-purchased it with online payment on the Frontier site, but I did not receive any confirmation of my purchase information. How do I know if there was a problem with the transaction .... and who should I contact if there is a problem ...

In advance, thank you for your answer.
