The Game Channel & CHASE

CHASE goes 24 and Jack CITY
On the later part of February 2012, all programs of CHASE were marked by an investigator note, located at the lower-left side of the TV screens, where it was written that CHASE goes 24. After that event, The Game Channel then bid goodbye to viewers of BEAM Channel 31 after 7 months of broadcasting on free TV, and decided to move its operations on cable. CHASE then remained on BEAMtv 31 and took its 24-hour broadcast on free TV. Some programs of CHASE are partly seen from its sister TV network on cable, JackTV. On September 7, 2012, Jack TV plugged their announcement thru CHASE programs bearing the title "Another Jack TV is rising, coming soon on this channel" (BEAM Channel 31). This indicated that CHASE was being replaced; finally, on October 20, 2012, Jack City was then launched, marking October 19 as the end of CHASE's broadcasts. Jack City still does carry some of CHASE's programs however.
