PewDiePie signs up to MLG for podcast exclusivity

Leading internet celebrity Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has signed a timed exclusivity deal with Major League Gaming.

Episodes of PewDiePie’s BroKen podcast will as of today debut on MLG.tv before they are available elsewhere, further strengthening the star’s seemingly gradual move away from YouTube.

We’re excited to introduce PewDiePie to the MLG.tv network as we continue to deliver exclusive content from the best producers in the world,” MLG’s VP of programming Ryan Wyatt said.

Our vision for MLG.tv is to make it the home for premium content and producers like PewDiePie and his show BroKen. This type of programming deal with PewDiePie, one of the biggest stars in digital media, is a great example of the premier talent we have joining the growing MLG.tv line-up.”

In August a US survey named Kjellberg as one of the most influential people on the planet amongst 13-18 year olds.
