Bingo has already infiltrated the online world with astounding success and managed to become an Internet phenomenon going into the digital age. Bingo halls are on the decline, and it’s becoming obvious that our love of bingo is perhaps even greater than ever, no doubt due to the social media storm taking over the world and the heightened exposure people are receiving to all manner of entertainment, including gambling.
Such is the world we now live in, that any conception can become a reality with relative ease due to the countless avenues we now have at our disposal, and as a result, we’re now happy to say that bingo is going to get it’s own television channel! A deal has been struck between Gala bingo and Catchup TV to offer an interactive gaming and leisure channel featuring some of the leading names in UK showbiz, the channel will also offer regular program features no doubt with an entertainment theme promoting the core content of the channel and whetting peoples appetites for the games featured.
The decision to create a dedicated channel came about as a result of the gala bingo app, which has seen astronomical success on the Google play platform with a staggering 10 million downloads so far – and that figure shows absolutely no sign of stopping. It’s primarily for that reason that CatchupTV invested in the idea of a non stop entertainment channel powered by the Gala brand – the demand is absolutely out there, and as long as people want more, Gala bingo is happy to give them more.
The “easy access” ideals of online bingo are really what’s going to help drive this new television channel – it will feature integrated apps, You tube catch up channels and a large web presence to ensure nobody misses their dose of entertainment regardless of where they are.
The leisure aspect of the channel is also going to pack a powerful punch with the latest celebrity gossip and entertainment news coverage – viewers will be able to get their latest fix of all things glitz and glamour whilst finding out the latest football scores and who’s leading the F1. The beauty of the whole platform really lies in the wealth of activity on offer though, and the main stay of the channel is definitely going to be the Gala games on offer. All of the staple favourites the company offers will be included for viewers to play, as well as programs like ‘Newbie nation’ which will focus on people who are completely new to bingo, or at least people who are new to online bingo and will give them a fantastic introduction to the game and how to play it successfully.
This is sure to become a huge hit, Catchup TV alone gains 4 million subscribers a month and Gala bingo has the credentials to hook viewers in for the long haul by providing a powerful entertainment package – when you combine this with the non stop demand of all things Hollywood, you’ve got yourself one perfect reason to put your feet up and grab that remote.
