Jump in a virtual or IRL event, tournament, or league. Participate in a Quest (a gaming challenge that you can do any time). Channel 3 has something for all skill levels, including gaming-focused daily minigames.
Go to Events below to search for real-time tournaments or other events. Quests will show you offline challenges you can complete at any time.
The heart of Channel 3 is rating and reviewing video games. What are your favorite games of all time? How about least favorite? The more games you rate, the more personalized Channel 3 becomes. You can even rate systems and make lists.
Press Games below to go to navigate the entire list of games. Or go Search.
Go to Lists to make collections of games. Channel 3 can be your game tracker, like Goodreads or Letterboxd for video games.

Whether it's 1 to 2, or 99 to 100, leveling up is the best feeling in the world. On Channel 3, when you participate in quests, when your post gets 1Up'd, when you crush a daily minigame, you get XP. Get 1k XP, and you level up and unlock rewards. Rewards can be custom reaction GIFs, cool backgrounds, or prize wheel spins for IRL gaming gear or in game currency.
Turbo is an optional subscription for superusers. You don't need Turbo to enjoy Channel 3. Turbo users get early access to new features, and are able to unlock more levels in a season.
On Channel 3, seasons last 3 months. They will always run January 1 - April 1, April 1 - July 1, July 1 - October 1, and October 1 - January 1.
Channel 3 is the social platform for gamers. You're welcome to browse. If you want to post, 1UP, respawn, comment, rate, review, complete quests, etc, you'll need to log in or create an account. (It's free.)
Open channel3.gg in Chrome. Click the Install icon in the right side of the address bar:
Click Install when you get this prompt.
After installation, you can pin to the Windows taskbar alongside your other favorite apps.
Open channel3.gg in Safari. It has to be Safari.
Tap the Share button in the middle of the footer.

BOOM. You're done. iPhones try to act like it's "just a website bookmark" because they want everyone to go through the App Store but really it functions just like an app... Full screen, moveable icon on your home screen. All of it.
Install the Channel 3 app from the Google Play Store.
"I have this (of course) and it's FINE. It works almost as good as Stadia. The official controller is VERY nice, even though it takes actual batteries and isn't a rechargeable one. I do like how they have different "channels" like Retro Games, etc. But you have to pay for each one so it'll add up if you get them all. They also give free games each month via Amazon Prime (but they get switched out. Stadia's games never got switched out. They all just sat there perfectly fine never being played). If you got a good internet connection and want to play games on the cloud for free AND have Amazon Prime, definitely give it a shot. You'll be surprised how good some games play while being streamed."
"Played this last night after finally deciding to give it a try.
Initial thoughts are here.
I played on my 2nd Gen 4K Firestick with my 8bitdo SN30Pro controller.
At first I was connected to my slower wifi (2.4ghz) and it was very laggy. I upped it to the 5ghz and it was smoother than a babys bottom. I was also streaming directly from Luna on my firestick to twitch. That was COOL.
4 stars right now as the game selection for Prime Members is limited and revolving and I'm not looking to pay for another subscription but UBISOFT does have a decent selection at $14.99/mo and Retro Gaming looked tempting at $4.99/mo."
