New York, NY, Jan. 20, 2011 – The New Year brings a whole new look to Spike TV’s weekly half-hour show about video games, “GTTV with Geoff Keighley.”  Now entering its fourth season, GTTV is the ultimate guide to what’s next in the fast-paced world of gaming, featuring world exclusive first looks at the hottest games of the future.  The all new season of GTTV premieres Thursday, January 27th at 1:10 AM ET/PT on Spike.

Along with an entirely new look for 2011, GTTV will add a weekly segment that dives into the latest technology news and trends.  Streamy-nominated vlogger and Internet star Justine Ezarik (iJustine) will make the jump from the computer monitor to television to give GTTV viewers her thoughts on everything from robots to tablets to 3D televisions.

Continuing to cover every major gaming event and launch as well as deliver AAA world-exclusive trailers, gameplay, reviews and news, GTTV will also level-up with new gaming-focused segments for 2011.  “Combat Facts!” heads onto the firing range to see if today’s games accurately portray real-world military weaponry and “GT Comedy” delivers weekly hilarity by popular video game comedians and sketch artists such as Mega64 and Keith Apicary.

“We couldn’t be more excited to offer our viewers a bigger, better and broader GTTV for 2011,” said host and executive in charge of video game publisher relations for Spike, Geoff Keighley.  “Spike is the No. 1 channel for video game programming on television and online and the new GTTV only strengthens our position as the go-to source for game information.”
