Gametoon HD is a worldwide entertainment TV channel for millennials revolving around gaming and eSports.

In addition to this channel, Gametoon App has also launched on the platform housing our wholly owned content. We had a shared vision and intent for Gametoon HD and this is just the first step to meeting this goal. Together, we are bringing Gametoon HD to Portugal, in a big way” said Georgina Twiss, MD Western Europe & Africa at SPI International.
