Brighton, England, February 23 2006: Eurogamer Network - publisher of the UK's most popular consumer video games website, Eurogamer.net - today launched Eurogamer TV, a complete video content solution for games publishers, developers and fans. The service is available now at https://www.eurogamer.tv
Eurogamer TV is designed to complement the main Eurogamer.net website and features an easy to use Flash-based video player, which requires no additional software to be installed by users. It not only provides video games fans with amazing quality footage of upcoming titles, but also demonstrates Eurogamer Network's commitment to the development of online video content in general.
Following on from a successful beta period during which tens of thousands of videos were streamed from the site, the fully launched service has enhanced features including the ability to expand videos to make the viewing area even larger than before and a new site design. The videos are available in low, medium and high quality versions, tailored to suit all Internet bandwidth speeds.
Eurogamer has made a large investment in the hardware infrastructure required to serve millions of videos each month. The site will be updated with new videos constantly throughout every weekday and aims to become the default destination for new and exclusive game trailers and footage.
Following on from this, the company will begin to produce original video content and will be announcing the high-profile signing of a dedicated editor for Eurogamer TV in the coming weeks. Eurogamer TV provides ease of use not only for the user but also for games publishers. Tools will be made available to PR teams to provide videos painlessly and quickly to Eurogamer TV, allowing maximum exposure for their products.
"The full launch of Eurogamer TV is the latest step in the rapid development of Eurogamer as a major online player," said Rupert Loman, Eurogamer Network's Director of Operations. "We're looking forward to kicking off original video content production and building a large audience for the Eurogamer TV site."
