Cultural events like CES will offer our viewers a first look at the things they‘ll be playing, watching and talking about in the next year and Spike‘s ‘CES All Access Live‘ multi-platform program offerings will deliver a front row seat to all the action."


CEA president, CEO Gary Shapiro said, "Spike‘s live coverage will help share the amazing product launches at the 2012 CES with a new audience and give consumers an exclusive opportunity to preview all the amazing new technologies announced at the 2012 CES".


As a part of the network‘s overall "All Access" program offering, which breaks down what‘s next in pop-culture, technology and gaming, the "CES All Access Live" multi-platform experience will be viewable live on Spike TV, online on Spike.com, GameTrailers.com and Facebook.com, mobile phones and tablets including the iPhone, iPad and Android devices as well as on giant video screens located in the "Crossroads of the World" in New York City‘s Times Square.
 
Broadcasting from its own CES studio in Las Vegas, Spike‘s expert team, including Geoff Keighley, Justine Ezarik and other notable talent to be announced shortly, will feature breaking news from the 2012 CES show floor, exclusive world premieres of new "must own" devices and video games, hands-on demonstrations and unboxings, interviews with the biggest names in entertainment and technology and a look into Spike‘s exclusive VIP CES party at Tryst Nightclub in the Wynn Las Vegas.


"CES All Access Live" will also feature a social media experience as part of its programming coverage using Twitter and Facebook to engage audience participation and provide up-to-the-minute feedback. Viewers will be encouraged to interact with show hosts in real time and share thoughts on new products, participate in opinion polls or ask questions.
