I have seen many news articles that mention that the Sonos announcement is today but none of them mention a time. Is this something we can watch like Apple or Google events?

I've heard that it's from 1pm to 5pm eastern but I haven't seen anything about a live stream.

I thought it was in the morning in NYC. I could be wrong.

There is definitely no live stream.
It is closed to the public, press only.

Just to clear, will the current Sonos units support Alexa or you need to buy a Sonos One?

Current units should be supported.

A stated from day one in the original press release, all current and past sold Sonos units will support Alexa through an Alexa enabled device.

Yeah, the skill isn't available for me in the US either. I'd suggest we may be beating Amazon/Sonos to the punch. There is a new page available:

Sonos also is apparently going to have an Alexa board, but it's restricted at this point:
