Channel Seven Cancels ScreenPLAY

Almost a year after kicking off their new venture into video games and esports, Channel Seven has cancelled ScreenPLAY.

The team behind the show cited “commercial realities in TV” for the show’s closure. The announcement seems to have come as a surprise, with the show only hours prior promoting a giveaway and touching base with readers through Facebook and Twitter.

Members of the show have reposted the message from the official screenPLAY account. Miles Ross, co-host and the show’s face of esports, also thanked the crew and those who nominated him for the role initially via Twitter.

Co-host and Good Game alumni Stephanie Bendixen also indicated that “there’s a world outside of games I plan to explore”, although she would always have an outlet for games through streaming and “event coverage”.
