Did anyone even post about this on L19 before? I myself wasn't really eager to watch the players during play (rocking forward and backward), but EuroGoTV did the normal game relays (which I certainly used) as well. While European Go dreams big about a working professional system, it loses its taken-for-granted projects.
EuroGoTV will stop function on June 1 2015.
After 8 years of existence with relative a lot of success the end is abrupt.
Why do we stop?
There are several reasons ... of course money is one of them. Although the cost to run EuroGoTV technically are very low, it takes more time and energy as one would think. Time I(we) cannot use to earn money with a regular job. Our not so great relationship with the EGF is another reason, as is my disappointment that EuroGoTV was seldom used by tournament organizers as intended (as a tool to attract sponsors), but on the contrary, seen as a financial burden. Also the fact that so few of you became a VIP-member (or made a donation -> `only` 600 euro in 8 years) didn`t give me the impression our efforts were appreciated as I aspired.
