Stay caught up on CES 2016 no matter where you are with these live streams

ces 2016 live stream roundup trends
CES 2016 doesn’t officially start until tomorrow, but plenty of companies are making their announcements early at their own events. We’re sure that while plenty of you would love to be at the show in person, you’re probably not able to make it. Fear not, as we’ve put together a list of some of the biggest live streams to stay just as caught up as anyone actually there in person.

Tuesday, January 5

LG – 8 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. ET

LG has already shown off some of what it is bringing to CES, including a massive 98-inch 8K television, but we’re sure that the company will be showing off its new K10 and K7 smartphones as well.

You’ll find this stream on LG’s website.

Panasonic – 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET

Unlike a lot of companies, Panasonic hasn’t been loudly announcing what it will be showing at CES this year, but considering the company’s history, we’re expecting a heavy focus on televisions and some camera news.

The Panasonic stream will be watchable via CNet.

Qualcomm – 12 p.m. PT / 3 p.m. ET

Qualcomm does more than produce one of the most popular chipsets for mobile devices, but we’re still expecting to hear plenty about the latest developments in all things Snapdragon.

This one will also be streaming on CNET.

Casio – 12 p.m. PT / 3 p.m. ET

While some people might still associate the Casio name with keyboards and calculators, the company still offers a wide variety of products, from cameras to smartwatches.

Casio’s CES 2016 lineup will be streaming live on YouTube.

Samsung – 2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET

Like LG, Samsung has already spoiled a lot of what it is bringing to CES, but alongside the usual announcements, we’re expecting to see more about the SmartThings Hub integration in its 2016 TV lineup.

Samsung’s press conference will stream live on its website.

Sony – 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET

Sony offers a wide range of products, so it will be a varied show. We’re expecting to see some new information on PlayStation VR, but don’t bet on seeing a new smartphone just yet.

Sony’s press conference will be available on Ustream.

Intel – 6:30 p.m. PT / 9:30 p.m. ET

Just last month, a bunch of new Skylake and Broadwell processors were announced, and they’ll probably make an appearance at Intel’s keynote. Given what we’ve seen before, this one should be fun.

Intel’s keynote will stream on its own website.

Volkswagen — 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET

Volkswagen and others are currently facing legal action over alleged violations of the clean air act, so that will likely get a brief mention, but we wouldn’t be that surprised to hear a rendition of Happy Birthday.

Watch it live on the Volkswagen website.

Wednesday, January 6

Netflix 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET

Unlike everyone else, Netflix decided to wait until the first day of the show proper for its own press conference. We’re betting on a lot of time spent talking about the company’s ever-expanding stable of original content.

The press conference will stream on Netflix’s website.

These live streams should give you a rough idea of what’s going on, but there is plenty more happening on the show floor. For the full schedule, see the CES website. Make sure to stay tuned to Digital Trends for all the latest and greatest news coming out of Las Vegas.
