The Gone Viral Network of pay-TV channels has added Gone Viral X-treme to its line-up; Gone Viral TV, Gone Viral Music, Gone Viral Vogue, Vamos Viral TV (Spanish) and now Gone Viral X-treme. Gone Viral X-treme will kick off its launch at the Caribbean Cable & Telecommunications Association (CCTA) Feb. 3rd to 5th, 2015 in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Adrenaline pumping made-for-web videos now available on your TV.
Larry Corke (GVTV, Co-founder) says, “the viewers’ exciting response to GVTV over the last three years is what caused the launch of the X-treme channel”. Corke goes on to explain that, “many cable operators fear what the Internet has caused with ‘cord cutters’, yet the Gone Viral Network has embraced the Internet culture and created a fresh outlet for bringing viewers back to TV”, as he then refers to several viewer tweets from previous Gone Viral Channel launches.
