The show’s in a similar vein to Gamer TV, so expect new, previews, and so on. It’s launching this week.

“It’s a good time to be launching television series about games,” said executive producer Richard ‘Double or Nothing’ Wilcox.

“We expect to reach around 100,000 gamers every week in the UK and many more than that on TV networks worldwide.”
