How to watch the last Microsoft CES Keynote

If you would like to watch the last Microsoft CES Keynote but can’t join us in Las Vegas…don’t worry! The Keynote will be streamed LIVE on the Microsoft Facebook page tonight at 9:30p ET/6:30p PT/0230 UTC.

What time you can you watch it in your time zone? Click here to find out

Head over to the Microsoft Facebook page to watch the stream.
I recommend not waiting until the last minute to jump in to watch the stream, swing by 15-20 minutes before and you’ll be all set.

    Will there be anything Xbox related worth to stay up till 3:30am (Germany)?

      I really hope so, tech demos from the next console will be enough for me.

        sadly I don’t think that this will happen tonight.

        That won’t happen here. That’s what E3 is for.

      There likely will be a couple of Xbox related announcements (one probably being the XBLA House Party announcement that leaked this morning) but nothing worth staying up that late for.

      I definitely don’t expect anything about a new console (I really don’t think that’ll happen until E3 2013).

    Is there no other way to do this?  I dislike using Facebook for anything but sharing info with friends/family (and in fact have the “platform” turned off entirely, so no apps or third-party integrations work for me).

      I’ll look for alternate links and post them on my Twitter when the show starts

    15-20 minutes early? That’s crazy talk.

    I think xbox live for windows 8 will be a big part of the show.

    It’d be really great if MS would stream events like these straight through to the 360. CES, E3, PAX, that would be really great for the core fans who are up on all the industry shenanigans and also bring new people into the fold. 
    I can remember when you guys did this for E3 one year (2006? 07?). It was really cool.

      They never live streamed anything for E3. The E3 stuff they did (in 06 & 07 I believe. It was more than one year) was all downloadable videos that went up throughout the week.

      I definitely would love to see these keynotes/press briefings streamed to the console though. Great suggestion.

    There’s no way to know if there is anything related to Xbox?

      They’ve had Xbox related news in their CES keynotes for a few years now so I expect something but it’s never anything really substantial.

    I don’t have facebook – not old enough. How can I watch the keynote? Only available through FB? Proprietary sucks.

    Will it be possible to watch the keynote later?
    I don’t wanna stay up till 3 in the night. (Netherlands)

    I also expected to be able to watch this on-demand directly on Xbox LIVE. I guess I’ll just have to drag my PC over to the TV and plug it in, old-school. Ugh. #firstworldproblems

    My guess is that the Keynote will mostly be about what Microsoft did for the past year and not just for the Xbox 360 but the company as a whole. Some will probably be about Windows 8. I’ll be watching the BCS Championship game instead so I’ll have to check it out later.

    lets see watch this or the BCS Championship Game LOL.

    This sounds boring. I’d rather watch Balmer’s hyperactive neurotic “Developers, Developers, Developers Developers, Yeaahhh!!” keynote one more time. Actually, I’ll be watching neither.

    I don’t have a facebook. What do i do now?

    the only person in that entire building that was enthusiastic about that keynote was balmer.  That entire keynote was balls. CES and you are talking about kinect?  THERE AREN’T SOCCER MOMS AND KIDS THERE

      Microsoft thinks we’ve all morphed into soccer moms or kids. That’s why their console doesn’t offer anything to appeal to us any more.

    Microsoft should be able to put together a better keynote. Honestly your presentation left the impression you thought your user base are only capable of limited mental activity. Bing, the xbox dash and Windows 8 has been designed under this rule. Making something more usable don’t mean you have to simplify to a child’s level. 
    Watch the sesame street part of your presentation then watch the rest of the keynote and take note if your talking to the same audience the game was. At least the sesame street game thought the audience could count to 4. The Windows 8 presentation didn’t think we could remember a few numbers: Click on the fish to unlock my computer…I can’t cook, I’d better send this recipe to my husband. Embarrassing.
