Gaming TV Channel Ginx (Virgin Channel 286)

Great news for gamers … or at least those with Virgin TV. Now, I realize this is slightly old news, as the channel launched back in July, but I only stumbled across it this weekend. Ginx is a channel dedicated to gaming. It has a good variety of programs, including news shows and the most wanted games of the moment. There are programs dedicated to sport games and to RPG / Adventure games. There’s an App program.

In short – there’s something for everyone, no matter what games you’re into.

The channel is available on channel 286 for those of us with Virgin boxes, but don’t fret too much if you don’t. The channel (which is available in other countries as well, check this list for details) also has an informative website that is packed full of previews, reviews and features.

You can check out the range of programs available on their web site ( I spent a good chunk of yesterday watching a First Hour of Skyrim, which was entertainingly presented and the current Top 40 games. I really liked how that was varied up, so some games were given a review, others an overview and still others had a mini-feature about them. This mix should ensure something different is available even for games that just won’t die!

Yes, I’m late to the party, but now I know about it – I’m in!
