If you usually spend part of your January following CES to discover what the year will bring in technology and gadgets, don't worry about the 2021 show's all-virtual format. The industry isn't flocking to Las Vegas this year, but the show will go on and CNET will still find the most fascinating new products and bring you the most important stories and trends.

To experience CES 2021 for yourself, you only need to watch CNET's livestream. We'll be broadcasting all day on Monday, when the show opens and getting an achingly early start. Follow along for press conferences, product reveals, a CES keynote presentation and expert commentary from our editors and hosts. Of course, we won't have a CNET stage, but the members of our team will join you from their home stages.

Here's our schedule for Monday, Jan. 11 (all events are listed in Pacific Time). To see it all, go to CNET.com/ces
