XLEAGUE TV channel launched

Well we reported on it previously, and now the UK's first eSports channel is finally on air. It started yesterday but I wanted to watch it a little before hitting the blog. It looks good although at the moment it seems like they could do with a little more content. I'm sure more will come as the channel grows though.
I really like the idea, and have always wanted to see competitive gaming more recognised as a sport, but cool game related ideas never seem to last on Sky. With any luck this'll stick.
If u don't have sky your limited to the website, where those who want a piece of the competitive action can sign up.
Those who do have it can hit 291 for to find out what all the noise is about.
