NEW YORK and ARLINGTON, Va. Oct. 20, 2011 -- Spike TV and the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)(R) have announced an exclusive partnership that includes plans to telecast live coverage from the 2012 International CES(R) , the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow. Spike will also introduce "CES All Access Live," which will offer tech fans more than 12 hours of 2012 CES coverage across multiple platforms - TV, online, mobile, social and more. The live special will kick-off with five hours of live telecasts in HD from Las Vegas on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 and will be the first of this year's Spike "All Access" Live Specials, which will also occur at two other events throughout the year. The 2012 International CES runs January 10-13 in Las Vegas.

"We're excited to partner with CEA and bring CES to audiences like never before on live television," said Jon Slusser, senior vice president, sports and multi-platform events, Spike TV. "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."

"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," said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CEA.

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 an unparalleled 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. They will then be able to receive answers from hosts and guests, view poll results or see their comments pop up on screen instantaneously.

From whichever platform viewers choose to watch, Spike's "CES All Access" will offer a first-hand look into the 2012 CES' hottest items, from televisions to tablets, cell phones to cars and games to gadgets, as the team sifts through thousands of new products and analyzes the biggest trends, the best inventions and the most important new technologies of the future.
