The weather forecast are perfect in Toulouse area tomorrow morning, April 27th.
French News channel LCI has just confirmed they will start a special coverage of the event at 9:00AM LT.
The take-off is scheduled at 10:30AM (Local Time) = 08:30 GMT.
All the Air space around Toulouse will be closed about 30 minutes before the A380's take off, and again around 30 minutes before its landing back at Blagnac Airport.

I'm sure if you turn on CNN or MSNBC at 3am or so, there probably wont be much news going on so they will probably show it. They may not have continual coverage, but I bet the takeoff and landing. They had some coverage when it rolled out so I'm sure it'll make some news.

I don't know if i'm missing something, but there is just 1 hour difference between France and the UK, at the moment the UK is in GMT, and France is in GMT+1, so i can't understand why 10:30AM in Toulouse should be 8:30AM in England..... thanks for any help.....

We are no longer in GMT we are in BST - British Summer Time. BST is 1 hour a head of GMT and Continental Europe is an hour a head of that!! Back to normal end of October when we go back to GMT - winter hours.
