Voom HD Networks, a television channel that exclusively airs high-definition video content, has teamed with Microsoft, NCsoft, and the World Series of Video Games to broadcast three tournaments on the network. Voom said it tapped in to the Xbox Live network to tape a 192-person Project Gotham Racing 3 tournament in May. When the tourney broadcasts on August 16-19 on the network, it will feature four hours of analysis, highlights, and interviews. Voom is already airing the February 2006 Guild Wars World Champions, and it said the next Guild Wars tourney--to be held August 24 in Germany--will be seen in their full glory on Voom in October. In September, the $1 million World Series of Video Games will appear on the network.

unethical???? media companies always promote thier own stuff any way they can nbc promotes local news. be thankful they are willing to dump capitol into a risky project to entertain you!!! But that might be your entertainment searching for ethics in an unethical world Good luck with that!
dish took over voom. voom was mostly hd broadcasting network not to be confused with mark cubans hd net and hd movie Dish network owns Voom and its HD CONTENT SO TO GET IT YOU NEED DISH networkthey also have hd net channel too most hd availible on dish!!!!
Mark Cuban is a good person to have at the helm of a major media provider. Voom will have its own country and language before the networks fully realize what a format change is.
I'd be interested in seeing unreleased games being played, but there's not enough skill required for PGR3 to make for an interesting show. Forza 2, maybe, time will tell. Maybe something like street fighter or dead or alive played by masters (i.e. not button mashers) would be compelling - or Fight Night Round 3.
Note to Gamespot: you might want to mention in your articles about Gameplay HD that you produce two shows for the network (http://www.gamespot.com/news/6146688.html). Having "news" about the channel without mentioning your vested interest in the channel is unethical.
well while I cant say this is bad news, I think I would rather just play it but it is nice to see multiplayer matches broadcasted online.
This surely can't be any worse than people who watch the World Series of Darts. But I think I'll spend the time playing the games as opposed to watching people play it..:)
