GAMER.TV CELEBRATES BICENTENNIAL EPISODE
Gamer.tv Approaches 200th Episode With Raft of Global TV Sales for Flagship Weekly Series
Gamer.tv (www.gamer.tv) has begun production of the 200th episode of its flagship series, "GAMER.TV", with a raft of new TV sales including Mun2 in the USA, FUEL in Australia and JIM-TV in Belgium and further renewals with Italia Teen in Italy and Prime Television in New Zealand.
Mun2 (www.mun2television.com), an Hispanic network targeted at 18-34 year-old Latinos and broadcast to 5.5 million households in the US market, has taken a series of "GAMER.TV", which has in-turn generated a great deal of knock-on interest in an American version of the series from a number of US networks.
An all-new Fox network-owned channel, FUEL (www.fuel.tv) is squarely targeted at the surfer culture prevalent in the Australian market. Offering 24/7 coverage of surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, BMX, motocross and wakeboarding, FUEL is the first and last word in action sports television in the Southern Hemisphere and will broadcast both the "GAMER.TV" weekly series and "Evolver" from December 2004.
Now approaching its third anniversary, Belgium's JIM-TV (www.jim.be) is the cable offering from the high profile VTM and is aimed at the 15-25 year-old age group. JIM-TV has taken episodes of "GAMER.TV", which is due for broadcast very soon.
Alongside the new sales, further renewals also highlight the continuing popularity of Gamer.tv's leading series on the international market.
Offering music, films, Manga and entertainment, Italia Teen (www.italiateen.it) is the first satellite channel in Italy to totally dedicate its programming to teenage boys and the renewal of "GAMER.TV" will continue to complement this programming schedule perfectly.
Prime Television (www.primetv.co.nz), a national, free-to-air network, which began broadcasting in New Zealand in 1998, has renewed the "GAMER.TV" series in its schedule, which currently includes programming covering general entertainment, lifestyle, drama and comedy.
The new signings and renewals highlight Gamer.tv's coming of age on the global market and also coincide with the launch of a new graphical intro sequence and music, as well as the 200th episode of its popular weekly magazine show.
