Game Channel is an American 24-hour television channel owned by The Game Channel Company, a subsidiary of Trinome Media. The channel is known for broadcasting gameplay videos, machinimas, and game animations. A Spanish language audio track for select programs is accessible via second audio programing (SAP); some cable and satellite companies offer the Spanish feed as a separate channel by removing the main English-language audio track.

History

The network was launched on January 16, 2011. The channel was led by Steven Short, a former YouTube worker. Short said he wanted people to watch gameplay without needing an Internet connection or an additional electronic device other than a television to watch YouTube or Twitch, so he developed Game Channel, which, with permission from the gamers and companies, broadcasts 24/7 gaming videos, machinimas, and video game documentaries.

On July 26, 2015, it was announced that Roblox and Minecraft were both getting single-game programming blocks on the channel, which was meant to "even out" the scheduling.

In June 2019, the channel was sold to Trinomerica, LLC, a subsidiary of Trinome Media from the Philippines. Following the purchase, an app of the same name launched.

On October 9, 2019, it was confirmed that there will be "international" Game Channel apps.
