GameTap Gets Animated

Product: GameTap

GameTap, the first-of-its-kind broadband entertainment network from Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (TBS, Inc.), today announced additional content for its Animation channel featuring an original series entitled "Computer Lab" and select animation content from the Cartoon Network and the Anime Channel. "Computer Lab" marks the twelfth original series to debut only on GameTap.

The comical series of animated "Computer Lab" video shorts - which will feature new episodes each week - was produced by GameTap and Soup2Nuts, the creators of Adult Swim's "Home Movies." "Computer Lab" chronicles the lives of the denizens of an all night computer lab at the University of State College. Tune in and see what happens when Bun, Turbo and Jill have too much time on their hands and too little supervision from the boss.

Additionally, GameTap will now offer selected Cartoon Network programs to subscribers via GameTap TV including:

Johnny Bravo
The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy
Dexter's Laboratory
Evil Con Carne
Courage the Cowardly Dog
The Powerpuff Girls
Ed, Edd n Eddy
Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends
Codename: Kids Next Door
Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi
Camp Lazlo
My Gym Partner's a Monkey

The Anime Network's critically acclaimed anime series "Mezzo" will premiere on GameTap TV on July 19th. Also from the Anime Network, North America's first cable network devoted entirely to Japanese animation, Megaman, Capcom's star of games and screen, will join the trio that make up the Danger Service Agency during Capcom week as he tries to prevent the fiendish Dr. Wily from destroying Japan in "Upon a Star."

"There is a huge amount of crossover between people who play games and cartoon fans so our decision to add Computer Lab, Cartoon Network and anime programming to our Animation channel made sense given the direction we see broadband entertainment headed," said Ricardo Sanchez, vice president of content for GameTap. "GameTap TV is the leader in delivering short form original programming over broadband and the addition of Computer Lab strengthens what is already a very compelling lineup of shows."

In addition to more than 400 shows and videos on its network, GameTap offers 580 video games, making it by far the largest collection of on-demand games on the internet.
