VGX

Spike TV has decided to reboot their annual Video Game Awards show by renaming it the VGX awards and have changed the broadcast model for the show:

Where previous shows have been aired live on Spike TV, this year’s show is first being livestreamed globally on Saturday for three hours on a massive, impressive list of websites and devices from smartphones and tablets to computers and gaming consoles. Then on Monday, Spike TV will air an hour-long pre-recorded version of the show designed to highlight the best of the VGX for a more mainstream audience.

The idea is to livestream it to the core gamer fans and air the condensed version for mainstream viewers who don’t necessarily need to see the ten minute demo of the latest game.
