Producer Geoff Keighley and YouTube plan 16 hours of live coverage at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) next week in Los Angeles.

E3 has become the biggest show for gamers, and Keighley (the host of The Game Awards) has teamed up once again with YouTube to bring out special guests in a livestream at E3. Those guests include popular Twitch streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and music producer/DJ Marshmello.

Now in its fourth year, YouTube Live at E3 is part of a multiyear content deal between producer Geoff Keighley and Google’s YouTube.

“E3 is a huge moment for the video game community, and this year we’re excited to bring together game developers, content creators and fans for a two-day celebration,” said Keighley, in an email.

The show will feature 16 hours of live programming across two days, Sunday June 10, and Monday June 11. Coverage begins Sunday, June 10 at 12 p.m. Pacific time.

The show will include YouTube’s top gaming creators including Ali-A, AngryJoe, Boogie2988, iJustine, MatPat, TypicalGamer, Vikkstar, and many more. And the show will have world premiere game demos, exclusive interviews with top game developers, and live simulcasts of major press conferences from Xbox, Bethesda, Ubisoft and Sony PlayStation.

Blevins will join Keighley as a special guest host on Monday, June 11. Ninja, who famously played Epic Games’ Fortnite with recording superstar Drake earlier this year, has amassed over 12 million YouTube subscribers to date.

Recording artist Marshmello will also join “YouTube Live at E3” as a special guest for a live Let’s Play with Ninja, and debut his new track “Tell Me,” from the forthcoming album Joytime 2, releasing June 22, as the theme of YouTube Live at E3.

“YouTube Live at E3 will anchor a full week of E3 coverage on YouTube, the biggest platform for gaming video in the world,” said Ryan Wyatt, global head of AR, VR and Gaming Content and Partnerships at YouTube. “All our E3 content, including Geoff’s show, will be accessible through a special event page at http://www.youtube.com/e3.”

Geoff does good work these days, though christ I'd rather not have MatPat and especially not Boogie there D:

Hopefully their presence will be very limited like last year

I really liked the professionalism and presentation last year, Geoff obviously wants gaming to be on an equal footing with movies and music, and with this and the Game Awards he's certainly achieving that.

Is there a schedule in UK time anywhere?

If all of it's in PDT, just add eight hours for the UK time. 13:00 PDT would become 21:00 BST, for example.
I'll be looking through that schedule now, so maybe I can do some more times.
Edit: The Youtube at E3 page already converts the times to your timezone, so the start is 19:45.

Is anyone else having issues with the stream? I've had it pause at least 4 times and I've had to restart it.

Yup, same issues with this and IGN, GameSpot's pre show is going smoothly so far.

This EA sports guy has done more to make me interested in their sports games with a conversation than any of the gooseberry fool they showed last night.

Weird that this doesn't really seem to be promoted as one of the first things you see when using the console Youtube apps. Had to dig around to find it.

I’m still digging! This is why I hate YouTube.

I wish on the TV app they had a “Live” section. Really this should be front a centre. It was the same with the Champions League Final. You had to search for the BT Sport channel first.
