The world’s largest esports company, ESL, is happy to announce that it will be bringing its core content to multiple global streaming platforms. Starting with the Intel® Extreme Masters World Championship in Katowice from March 4-6, the broadcast of ESL’s content will be available on Twitch, Azubu, Hitbox and Yahoo streaming platforms.
ESL’s events have consistently broken viewership records, among them the record for the highest number of concurrent viewers on a single channel, when 1.3 million people tuned in for the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competition during ESL One Cologne 2015. Welcoming three new additions to our streaming channels will enable ESL to open up its world class esports competition content to a larger and broader audience worldwide, maximizing the reach and growing the global audience. The company continues to deliver the most legendary esports moments across multiple games and platforms, further growing its offering by expanding to new regions and adding new games to its Leagues and events.
"The most important aspect to keep in mind when creating an esports broadcast is the audience," said Nik Adams, Senior Vice President Global Sales & Business Development at ESL. "Expanding our distribution channels was done with this very audience in mind. Now viewers all across the world have greater flexibility in choosing how to consume ESL content - a first step with many more to follow."
All competition can also be followed through IEM’s central broadcasting hub over at live.intelextrememasters.com, which also features streams in multiple languages.
