“With Game Changers, Stage 5 TV is continuing to deliver on its promise of network-quality, gamer-focused entertainment,” said Mark Kern, CEO of Red 5. “We’re finally filling that gap left by the old G4TV, before it turned into the ‘COPS channel’. We think that having a network to call their own is something gamers have been missing for a long time.”

The Game Changers season one finale takes the team to the Tempest Freerunning Acadamy to test out their platforming skills with hilarious results. Watch the cast dive into the popular sport, parkour, with an added videogame twist – they’ll be running from a “bear”. The Game Changers “Platforming” finale wraps up a powerhouse first season featuring “Jetpacking”, the “Zombie Apocalypse” and “Lockpicking”. Fans are encouraged to leave a comment under any Game Changers episode suggesting new crazy videogame tropes for the cast to tackle in season two, coming later this year.
