The Penny Arcade Expo is happening right this minute in Seattle, and statistics suggest that you are not one of the people attending. That’s OK, because PAX is broadcasting a bunch of content this weekend through its official channel on livestreaming website Twitch.

PAX has two Twitch channels. is streaming the entire lineup of panels scheduled for the “Main Theatre” while is streaming the panels from “Kraken Theatre.” Why do they use the “theatre” spelling instead of “theater”? My guess is that the people who make those sorts of decisions are pretty classy.

Things get underway at 10:30 a.m. Pacific with the keynote address from Fable designer Peter Molyneux. You can watch for free, but PAX is offering a $10 tier that is ad-free and enables streaming in HD. Check out the full lineup and both PAX channels below:
