Esports is sky-high in India. Everything around the industry is contributing one way of the other into the veracity of the spectrum. Adding one more great news to the wardrobe, DSPORT, a sports channel will broadcast ESL India games live on Television!
DSPORT, sports, and entertainment TV channel by Discovery Network will initiate their first set of live games on television starting tomorrow, the 19th of July.
The games will be from that of ESL India Premiership, which features mainly CS: GO, DotA & Clash Royale.
ESL India Premiership, being one of the most competitive events of the year in India has contributed a lot in creating an active community of participants and the audience. The gamers hypothetically were labeled as kids, but after this, the contention of the masses will shift towards accepting this growing culture.
This is for the first time, that a competitive gaming event of this level will be featured and broadcasted live on satellite televisions. Not to forget, there was a show prior to this roughly a decade ago which went by the name “Games Bond,” but it was rather a casual juncture.
The list of satellite television network providers are as below:
|Service Providers||Channel No.|
It is, however, still unclear if all the other franchise of ESL India will have their slot on display in DSPORT. Esports in television is an invention in India compared to the other countries which already have dedicated a time-slot for broadcasting e-gaming festivals.
The first to start this in a regular fashion was ELEAGUE which broadcasted their ELEAGUE Seasons in television on major platforms all across US and Canada.
