- Control Freaks (TV series)
Control Freaks was a weekly video game review television show which was broadcast at 12:30pm on Sundays on the Seven Network in Australia. It was made in Adelaide, South Australia, by the digital media production company, Brave Vision Pty Ltd, founded by Brett Howe and David Nye. Control Freaks was first broadcast in 2001. The program was cancelled by Seven in 2003 after two years on air.
After Australian distribution ended, Brave Vision launched control-freaks.tv. Online video streaming was still new in 2002, but Control Freaks was one of the world's major streaming games TV services, syndicated to over 100 affiliated websites across the globe.
The show continued to be broadcast on the international market, with a 26 part series in 2003/04, and a 52 part series in 2006/07. The team at Brave Vision made a total of 98 episodes of Control Freaks for cable, satellite, free-to-air and online distribution, and still produces games-related content for the video games industry.
The production company behind Control Freaks, Brave Vision Pty Ltd, has gone on to produce several international TV series and specials, including Hero 2 Zero, Ultimate Gadgets, Hotrods & Mean Machines and a high definition cooking show, Cultural Flavours.
