SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — COIN-OP TV celebrates six years of independent Internet TV on the video game industry. An early adopter of the online video format, COIN-OP TV launched a year before YouTube and many other popular video content Web sites.

COIN-OP TV launched in the summer of 2004 as a monthly video podcast show about the video game industry, people and events. The show is a “who’s who” of the video game industry with a wide range of interviews including designers, collectors, world record holders, artists and more. DVD Volume 3 contains exclusive interviews with Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, Walter Day (Twin Galaxies), Kevin Pereira (G4tv’s “Attack of the Show” host), Robert Bowling (Infinity Ward) and more.

In 2006 COIN-OP TV restructured and re-launched as a weekly live/streaming show hosted by Robert Welkner and Hailey Bright. The new format featured studio guests, bands and video game demonstrations as well as live interaction via the chat room.

COIN-OP TV LIVE was the first independent live/streaming video program on the gaming industry and was named a finalist for “Best Live Show” and nominated for a Streamy Award in the “Best Live Production” category for 2009.

COIN-OP TV DVD Volume 3 is a “best of” collection from the third year of production – all episodes have been re-mastered for DVD featuring over 90 minutes of content.
