About Level UP TV
Level Up TV are a video broadcasting and commentary team with a common goal of bringing live, high quality video coverage to both minor and major e-sports gaming events worldwide. The team at Level Up TV had consisted of commentators who had each taken part in their respective games at a Premiership or equivalent level, a gap they identified as lacking within e-sport commentary at that time. Since it’s inception in November 2009 however, the need to recognise new and upcoming talent in both players and commentators to further the brand was recognised.
This is how we will continue to build upon what we beleive is quite simply a unique contribution to the gaming community and we hope that with the support of our viewers, we can continue our quick successes through the remainder of 2010 and onto 2011.
