How to watch it

There are a few main ways of watching the show. Over on their Youtube channel, you can watch their official livestream. With just over 27k subscribers, the chat likely won't be that hectic on this one. If you want to see your own messages and interact with the crowd, this is the way to watch it.

Outside of this, you can also catch the show on their official Twitch channel. This has almost three times the followers so this should be a little more widely watched. If you want to engage in the hype and get a little lost in the crowd, this should be your choice.

Outside of this, plenty of streamers will be co-streaming the show on their respective platforms so there's a good chance your favourite spot for gaming commentary will be reacting to it. You can get all the latest updates and news on the night right here.
