Click to read.GameTap, the latest in on-demand video game downloads, has just unveiled a brand new feature to their service, appropriately titled \"GameTap TV\". This new branch of the GameTap world will give subscribers access to a wide variety of more than 250 videos on demand ranging from \"Space Ghost Coast to Coast\" episodes to rock, hip-hop, and country music videos.

Several channels of GameTap TV will be available, all of which fit into the gamer demographic. Users can also bookmark their favorite videos for easy access. A number of channels will be available including the OnTap channel, GameTap Originals channel, Music channel, Animation channel, and Game channel. The channel names are pretty self explanatory. For example, the OnTap channel features the latest programs on the network, the Game channel shows previews of available games, and so on.

\"GameTap is about playing games and a whole lot more,\" said Ricardo Sanchez, vice president of content. \"We have compelling and funny TV shows that you really can\'t find anywhere else. Every week, we launch new games on our service and serve up original shows to entertain you on gameplay breaks. We don\'t just push recycled TV content and cutting room floor material at our audience.\"

Other important notes in the world of GameTap include that the service has recently surpassed the 400 game mark in games available for download. Some of the newest titles include \"Ghouls \'N Ghosts\", \"Dark Stalkers\", \"Populous\", \"Oregon Trail\", and \"Baldur\'s Gate\". I am also happy to report that the subscription cost for the service has dropped down to $9.95 per month. If you haven\'t yet given GameTap a trial run, I highly suggest you do. The games are great and service is only getting better as more features and games regularly become available.
