Blizzcon Virtual Tickets on Sale

If you didn’t snag a ticket to Blizzcon and you still want to attend, you have two options: try and score a ticket between now and the convention from someone who has a spare or is willing to sell theirs, or buy a virtual ticket to stream the event from DirecTV, who will be broadcasting much of the event live on the Web. Tickets for access to the stream are $39.95 USD.

DirecTV has expanded their coverage of the event this year with four different channels of content from different areas of the con, so you don’t have to worry about missing a penel or an event that you desperately want to see because another event is being streamed instead. Granted, four channels isn’t nearly enough to show you everything going on at the convention, but it’s a huge step up from last year’s single-channel coverage, where if it wasn’t on screen and it was happening at the same time, you were missing it.

    […] Even Starcraft II players get in on the action? Sheesh. If you managed to snag a ticket, congratulations! (We’re still waiting on Blizzard to tell us if we can go.) If you didn’t, and don’t think you’ll make it, virtual tickets are still on sale! […]
