Can't afford a plane ticket for PAX East? Good news! You can watch the whole thing through Twitch!

by: Jeff -

Can't afford to go traipsing across the U.S. to attend PAX? Well, you can watch all the nerdy goings-on in the pantsless comfort of you living-and/or-bedroom through the magic Twitch portal!

Go to the Twitch PAX East Event Portal for the full schedule and live streams.

They'll also be live streaming two tournaments live:

On Saturday 4/12 at 3:00pm EST- The TeSPA Collegiate Hearthstone Open. Which is a lot of words that basically mean four of the top Hearthstone players that go to college will be going head-to-head for $5,000 in scholarships.

On Sunday 4/13 at 1:00pm EST- The CAPCOM PRO TOUR. The year-round tour for the latest iteration of Street Fighter will be holding a raking event at the Twitch booth.

Also on Saturday 4/12 at 11:30am EST, Newegg is hosting a race to see who can be the first to build and boot up a power PC featuring some of the top components available today.

If you're lucky enough to be attending PAX East, if you stop by the Twitch booth, they have a broadcasting stage where they'll be showing off demos, holding interviews and other events hosted by Jon Carnage, djWHEAT, MANvsGAME and Swiftor. They'll also be doing a couple nifty giveaways. 

More details after the jump- or you could just go straight to the live stream.
