XLEAGUE.TV Gives Gamers 'The Edge'

XLEAGUE.TV is proud to announce the premiere of a brand new show. The Edge features professional gamers from around the world sharing their most closely guarded hints and tips across a wide range of games and genres.

Whether you're an amateur or advanced player, The Edge has something to offer you. Each game is divided into two fifteen-minute programs - one specialising in tips for beginners, and the other for the more experienced player. "This way we are catering to a much larger audience," says Ray Mia, Channel Head. "We wanted a show that would benefit people no matter what their level."

The first show premieres this Sunday 23rd September at 8.30pm on Sky Channel 279, with world famous Team Dignitas giving their tips on the real-time strategy game 'World in Conflict.' The premiere will be a double-bill, featuring both the amateur and advanced tips programs back-to-back.

The Edge adds to a range of existing XLEAGUE.TV shows, including The Match, Game60, The Chart Show, Trailblazersand Inside Gaming.
