Join CNET’s Meta Connect Viewing Party Oct. 11 at 9 am PT/12 pm ET

It’s been nearly a year since the company formerly known as Facebook rebranded itself as Meta and extended that name into nearly all of its services and products. The previous Oculus Quest headset is now the Meta Quest, Facebook Portal became Meta Portal, and other services like Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram have received Meta’s branding as well.

Meta is now planning to make a number of product and service announcements on Tuesday at the company’s Connect events, and CNET will be covering it live with a show that starts at 9 am PT/12 pm ET. The show will first feature our videos on what we expect at Meta Connect, and at 9:30 am PT CNET’s Bridget Carey and Justin Tech will hold our preshow with reporters Queenie Wong and Ian Sherr. The panel will provide analysis on what to expect and take questions from the live YouTube chat.

Just before the Meta Connect event begins at 10 am PT, CNET will get a peek into Meta’s Horizon Worlds to show what the virtual world looks like before the announcements. Then the stream will move directly into the Meta Connect event.

After the event wraps, CNET’s post-event show with Bridget Carey, Justin Tech and Scott Stein will analyze all the announcements and answer more viewer questions from the chat.
