One year ago, gTV by Ubisoft launched as a new entertainment channel in France and Germany with the mission of going “Beyond and Behind the Game.” Now, gTV is about to level up again by launching in the UK today. This means new shows, new hosts, new special guests, and even more of the games you love, as gTV releases loads of new content on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Twitch.
There’s plenty in store for gTV in the UK, including a slate of exciting new shows covering all aspects of gaming culture, from food to music, from arts to diversity, and more!
