Kentish Town Studios Wins A Bigger Challenge Jackpot

The popular cross-platform gaming brand Challenge Jackpot has chosen London-based Kentish Town studios to house its expanding operations.
October saw an extension of Challenge Jackpot's live broadcasting hours and its launch on the Sky platform.
Challenge Jackpot - 'Your Favourite Place To Play' - is a 24/7, fully interactive gaming channel available on digital TV, via interactive television and online. It is produced by interactive games specialist Two Way Media for Virgin Media Television.
Challenge Jackpot's association with Kentish Town Studios dates back to its original launch on July 1, 2008, when it played host to eight hours of live broadcasting every night.
On October 27, 2008, Challenge Jackpot increased its live output by 25% to ten hours every night, broadcast online, on Virgin Media channel 154 and - since October 6 this year - on Sky channel 860.
Cable viewers can use an interactive application produced by Two Way Gaming, Two Way Media's sister company, that enables them to play along with live programming on the channel. Simulcasts are also carried overnight on Bravo 2 and Virgin1, extending Challenge Jackpot's reach to Freeview viewers.
Operating from the 72 square-metre Studio 2, the live output is transmitted to Sky via the BT tower, using the recently upgraded facilities that include a new production gallery.
Outside the live hosted gaming, players are able to continue playing around the clock, both on TV and on the Challenge Jackpot website via gaming servers.
