No TV? Watch The Spike Video Game Awards Here, Live [Update]

If you're somewhere without a cable television or, worse, no television at all, you can still follow the action from tonight's 2011 Spike Video Game Awards live, right here. Courtesy of Spike and MTV Networks, we're glad to bring you live streaming video of the broadcast.

UPDATE: It appears as though the VGAs isn't available in Australia for licensing reasons. Lame. If anyone finds a decent stream feel free to drop the link below, otherwise we'll update with the trailers as soon as they drop.

A half-hour pre-show begins at 7:30 pm, which you may also catch through the feed embedded below. As the night unfolds, we'll be breaking out news from the evening's reveals and trailers, and posting those videos separately as they become available.

Lastly, awards will be conferred in 26 categories this evening. Below are the full list of nominees. We'll update it here as the winners are announced.

    Found a stream. The owner is talking over the stream in some foreign language though.

    http://www.livestream.com/podgames

    Its a joke that we cant watch the live stream from Australia.

    Hey guys, there's a stream here. Not great, but it's better than nothing.
    http://www.justin.tv/spiketvvgas#/w/2222376528

    we can't stream it in New Zealand either =\

    so retarded they could atleast sell the stream writes to some pay tv stations in AUstralia so i can watch it on Foxtel i wouldnt mind paying for it

      You will be able to watch it on Foxtel but it doesnt air here until the 21st on Sci-Fi which is truly stupid.

      All that matters is the trailers though and they will be getting uploaded soon enough anyway.

    Yeah i searched everywhere for it, and already 2 channels have been shut down to watch it online. This is just stupid, I really wanted to see the Diablo 3 Video

    so there is no way at all to watch it in australia?

    I'm live streaming it from Australia through the spike.com website. Just clicked through to the live stream. Works great on my iPad through AirPlay to Apple TV

    C&C: Generals 2 is offically announced. Looks like Bioware is what we should be calling EA for non sports and racing games.

    Mych better stream for aussies, but you probably shouldn't watch it, it's horrible.
    And as a typed that "Charlie Sheen award best shooter", turning it off now.
