Ray Mia, channel head of XLeague.TV comments“This is a no-brainer as far as we’re concerned - the partnership between X.League.TV and XFM is made in heaven. We appeal to exactly the same audience of 16-35 year-olds so it makes good business sense. Alex Zane’s Breakfast Show on XFM also happens to be a personal favourite of mine and a number of key XLeague.TV staff, we could not be more enthusiastic about this opportunity to provide a better offering to the music loving gamers out there.”
