“The Video Game Awards lands on Animax at a key juncture in our development as a youth-seeking global brand,” said Marie Jacobson, SPT’s exec veepee, programming and production, international networks. “This category represents a core focus for the network and our 14- to 24-year-old target audience.”

The VGAs attract stars from vidgames, film, TV, music and sports to celebrate the year in gaming and to premiere footage from upcoming games.
