AxiomTechTV (previously Take Five Tech, Tech 5, and RaGETech) is an American television channel devoted for technology, video games, and recently, motoring. It launched on December 23, 1999 with Nick Arcade, EP Daily, and Power Play. After the launch of the channel, Select aired, and in 2000, they started to air StarCraft tournaments, and also in 2000 onwards, they provided coverage of the Tokyo Game Show, Jump Festa, and limited coverage of BlizzCon. Since 2017, AxiomTech has provided coverage of Gamescom.

On the 1st of January 2017, Axiom Entertainment rebranded the network after RaGE Media sold the channel to them. Axiom has stated that they'll make sure that gaming and technology will have the recognition they deserve. They also announced that Anime Unleashed will be cut down to a Friday night block. They also said that Top Gear Korea will stay on the channel at it's original time of 4-5am. On the 31st of January, it was announced that Top Gear Korea will be moved into the 12a-1am slot on weekends, with the previous slot being used for reruns of Starcade and Import.

History

In the summer of 1999, Take Five Group approached Turner Broadcasting System to help launch a technology channel to serve as a competitor to TechTV. A few months later, they started to produce an original series to launch alongside the channel and bought the rights to some shows, such as Video Power, StarCade, GamesMaster, and also acquired some anime as well to air in the nighttime.

Pre-launch

Take Five Media approached a local design company to create a logo and bumps for the channel, and in the winter of 1999, the channel was launched at 6am EST with reruns of Computer Chronicles, among other technology related series. It also had it's first original series, Playthru, a series that showcases a game every season.

Programming

Most of the programming are acquired, but the channel has said that they will create original programming which will be produced by RaGE Game x RaGE Sports, and Axiom Entertainment.
