ESL has announced that it will launch its esportsTV channel on PlayStation Vue in the coming weeks.
Before the end of the month the channel will launch on PlayStations TV service in the States, just in time for a live broadcast of the Intel Extreme Masters Sydney CS:GO event taking place at the start of May.
The channel will be available as part of the PlayStation Vue Elite plan, giving viewers in the States access to the 24/7 channel for the first time. European viewers have been able to watch the chanel for some time, with over five million households having access to the broadcast.
“EsportsTV is the perfect complement to the PlayStation Vue offering and represents just another step for esports as a form of mainstream entertainment,” said Steven Roberts, Executive Chairman, ESL. “ESL is in a unique position to significantly expand the reach and impact of premium esports content and we are thrilled to bring esportsTV to the U.S. market.”
