Following the massive success of ETTV.ORG, a new vision was born to create a site and a community that would tend to the needs of not just ET spectators - but others too. Almost two months of hard work have paid into the structure of GAMESTV.ORG; a multigame site with the aim of broadcasting as well as providing IPs to some of the biggest games and the biggest matches.
Keeping the functionality of its predecessor, GAMESTV.ORG will add new features for general users, broadcasters and league admins. Tied closely to Radio iTG, ClanBase/GGL and various other leagues and organisations, GAMESTV.ORG is able to offer the hottest, most up to date TV coverage. Added to that, our newly-formed partnership with CoDTV.org already puts Enemy Territory and Call of Duty at the frontal for coverage.
Some of the original features from ETTV.ORG remain with improvement:
- Frequently updated schedule for the biggest games
- Easily accessible lists of IPs and shoutcast servers
- Full support from GAMESTV.ORG staff on the GAMESTV.ORG Forum and on #gamestv.org.
Added to the host of new features:
- Multiple game support; with ET, CoD2 and UT2004 already confirmed
- Interface; giving easier access to the big games and cleaner navigation
- Speed; removal of laggy Google and RSS feeds and a faster webserver
- Game filters; only see matches of the games you are interested in
- Identity; upload your own avatar
- Customise; which colour are you in the mood for?
- IRC; get IPs without having to even visit the site from the GamesTVBot on #gamestv.org
- IRC 2; get IPs with just a few clicks with chaplja's upcoming GAMESTV.ORG IRC Plugin
- Lowdown; improved timezones to ensure you never miss a match
- In control; improved tools for broadcasters and league admins
- Friendly faces; some of the community's most well known characters backstage
- Expandability; an ever growing list of planned additional features
Better still, all your settings from ETTV.ORG are fully transferred to GAMESTV.ORG meaning you can instantly take advantage of the new features. Of course, new users are still welcome to signup today. We have always been and will continue to be a community site. A simple non-profit group of fellas striving to ensure those who want to spectate the best - do so. Be sure to post youre ideas and suggestions, too.
