Santa Monica, CA, August 3, 2010– COIN-OP TV celebrates six years of independent Internet TV on the video game industry. An early adopter of the online video format, COIN-OP TV launched a year before YouTube and many other popular video content websites.
COIN-OP TV launched in the summer of 2004 as a monthly video podcast show about the video game industry, people and events. The show is a‘who’s who’ of the video game industry with a wide range of interviews including designers, collectors, world record holders, artists and more. DVD Volume 3 contains exclusive interviews with Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, Walter Day (Twin Galaxies), Kevin Pereira (G4tv’s Attack of the Show host), Robert Bowling (Infinity Ward) and more.
In 2006 COIN-OP TV restructured and re-launched as a weekly live/streaming show hosted by Robert Welkner and Hailey Bright. The new format featured studio guests, bands and video game demonstrations as well as live interaction via the chat room.
COIN-OP TV LIVE was the first independent live/streaming video program on the gaming industry and was named a Clicker.com finalist for‘Best Live Show’ and nominated for a Streamy Award in the‘Best Live Production’ category for 2009.
COIN-OP TV DVD Volume 3 is a‘best of’ collection from the third year of production– all episodes have been re-mastered for DVD featuring over 90 minutes of content.
