YouTube Gaming is entering the live TV arena with a new talk show.
Imaginatively titled Live with YouTube Gaming, the series will feature video game world premieres, musical performances, and a look at what’s next on YouTube Gaming.
The streaming site’s dedicated gaming portal was launched last year, as the online community surrounding gaming continues to grow. Now, YouTube is giving that community its own weekly series. Hosted and produced by Geoff Keighley, the hour-long show promises to be interactive and, in its first eight-episode season, will feature appearances from such gaming creators as MatPat, iHasCupQuake, iJustine, Nadeshot, AngryJoeShow, and UnboxTherapy.
Keighley is no stranger to such events, thanks to his years of experience with YouTube’s annual Live At E3 broadcasts. YouTube, meanwhile, is aiming to use the series as anchor for its Primetime programming, growing a hub for gaming fans to watch the shows but also chat with each other. The programme will include news, first-looks at new games, live Let’s Plays, eSports updates, musical performances and more. Episode 1 will kick things off with a preview of upcoming FPS Titanfall 2.
“Live with YouTube Gaming is an incredible opportunity to invent a new kind of live show that will serve as a discovery engine for what’s new and next on gaming,” said Keighley in a statement. “YouTube is the perfect place to do a show like this because we can reach gaming fans and interact with a global audience in real time.”
Live with YouTube Gaming premieres on Thursday 29th September at 8pm ET, 5pm PT and midnight, GMT. Content made by guest contributors for the show will be available after each show as on-demand clips on each vlogger’s respective channel.
