Why Television?

Right now, there’s a bit of a gap in the market for video game related television shows. To be fair, there’s a glut of well-produced video game related programming available on the Internet- the thing is, content that does well online may perform differently on television- the reverse is also true, as more long-form video game related content tends to do better on TV.

If you’re looking for quick, two-minute game news bites, you’re probably going to whip out your smartphone- if you’re looking for a long-form report on the state of the gaming industry, you’d probably prefer to watch that on television.
