TheGamer.TV takes a curated approach to the best gaming videos on the Internet
Watch hand-picked clips from the most popular games in the world.
While Twitch and YouTube continue to compete for dominance of esports coverage, the new website TheGamer.TV is taking a different approach to the video side of video gaming. Run by Level Up Media, the folks behind the esports platform DingIt.TV, TheGamer.TV aims to provide viewers with premium, hand-picked clips from the latest and most popular games like GTA, Call of Duty and FIFA.
Rather than hosting hour-long streams, though, TheGamer.TV focuses on short, minutes-long clips highlighting clutch gaming moments like impressive killstreaks and come-from-behind victories, as well as funny videos of games bugging out and trick videos showcasing hidden secrets.
The key element to TheGamer.TV that distinguishes it from other video platforms is its curation. Every video on the site is selected by actual human beings instead of being surfaced through computer algorithms, which in theory should ensure a greater diversity of clips as well as avoid issues where ne'er-do-wells game the system to get their 15 minutes of fame.
TheGamer.TV is a free service supported by ads, much like Twitch and YouTube, and you can check it out right now at, unsurprisingly, TheGamer.TV.
