Structure and mission
EuroGoTV is one of the newest Go sites on the Internet. It was born in 2007 with the idea to provide modern coverage of the events and news of the ancient exciting game of Go.

Live TV - watch all the important European tournaments and games live. See the red ears as they appear!! EuroGoTV is proud to have started the new "norm" for camera angles with the focus on the players face and body language instead of filming a boring view of a board.
The mission of EuroGoTV is to cover all aspects of the Go game. We truly believe that Internet is for Go what television is for soccer. It is the element that can revolutionize the game, bring more fans, and with that, more sponsors.
For years, various Go organizations have been trying to create large scale tournaments and yet players receive relatively low prize fund. The main reason is that Go lacks adequate global coverage. We hope EuroGoTV can help Go Federations/Associations/organisations to eliminate the mentioned problems and will bring the game to a higher level.
EuroGoTV aims to get Go in the picture, world wide, with a focus on Europe.
Membership is open and free, but we have also a VIP-membership.
More info about VIP-points itself you can find here: VIP-points info.
We welcome interaction with every person and organisation that works to promote Go.
Besides live TV-broadcasts this site offers videos of interviews, go-events, lectures and game reviews.
We especially want to attract beginners and players with lower rankings.
Generally we like to intermediate between supporters, players, clubs,
associations and any other organisations in connection to Go, bringing the real Go events closer to all those interested, via the internet.
EuroGoTV looks for any help in making a rich and broad programme.
The videos and live TV broadcasts of EuroGoTV are produced by simple web- and camcorders, software to edit and common sense.
