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