HUD combines the best elements of sports news television and variety shows to offer viewers a unique look at the world of gaming.
“We are very excited to introduce our subscribers to Heads Up Daily, our first original production for Ginx Esports TV Canada, North America’s first 24-hour esports channel, which we launched this past May”, said Don McDonald, President and CEO of Super Channel. “We couldn’t be happier with the quality and content of the series and are launching it on Super Channel to give our viewers who may have not yet discovered GINX, a taste of what the exciting world of esports has to offer.”
“We are thrilled to launch the world premiere of our new esports format HUD with Super Channel,” said Curt Marvis, CEO and Co-Founder, QYOU Productions Inc. “This is a big milestone for QYOU as we begin to push HUD out via new and existing distribution partnerships globally over the coming months.
