London, England and Reykjavik, Iceland - June 25th, 2007 MMM Publishing Ltd, the producers of E-ON the official magazine for EVE Online, and CCP, one of the worlds largest independent game developers and creators of EVE Online, have launched EVE TV. EVE TV is a weekly on-demand Internet TV broadcast dedicated to the virtual universe of EVE Online ( http://eve-online.tv).
EVE TV is dedicated to reporting on EVE Onlines ever-growing virtual society, the very latest in-depth news, in-game skirmishes, market trends, human interest stories, exclusive interviews and game-related features in a professional and entertaining weekly production. SpiralJunkie, EVE TVs lead anchor, is a veteran of the EVE Online scene and is ably assisted by the infectious enthusiasm of StevieSG. The dynamic duo are backed up by a first-rate reporting team, FortunaFive, Fangtooth Kasumi and Beefy Fiddler, not to mention a widespread crew of in-game correspondents, all providing the latest in EVE Online news both in and out of the game in real time. More information on EVE TVs presenters can be found at http://eveonline.tv/aboutus.aspx.
EVE TV was originally formed to broadcast from the EVE Online Alliance PVP Tournament in 2006, during which more than 10,000 EVE fans tuned in to the live, double-weekend broadcasts. EVE TV has been transformed into a weekly news-style broadcast of life in EVE Onlines ever-changing virtual world. The service is hosted through Jalipo, the first online marketplace for TV and video.
EVE TV is the next level in ground-breaking virtual media, commented Oliver Skelding, MMM Publishings Managing Director. Its a world first, providing communication to a community on a scale never before seen, giving players a platform to communicate with each other beyond mere web forums and podcasting. EVE TV is focused on player-led news and events and provides unparalleled access to behind the scenes information about the game. EVE TV is designed by the players, about the players, for the players.
EVE Online has always been testing the boundaries of online gaming with its massive online universe, so it was a natural progression that such a dynamic and active virtual world had its own TV station. said Magnus Bergsson, CMO of CCP Games. EVE Online is a universe run by its inhabitants and as such produces epic and diverse events that need to be reported in the same way they are in real life. EVE TV is the ideal medium for such reporting as it offers independent and timely information to the players and CCP itself.
