Britain's B.b.c. To Cover E-sports Action

Major UK broadcaster follows ESPN into booming eSports vertical

The venerable British Broadcasting Corporation has followed ESPN in signing up for eSports coverage, with a huge crowd expected at the League of Legends World Championship quarter finals at London's Wembley Arena from October 15-19.
The broadcaster will livestream all four days across its BBC Three and BBC Sport online networks – platforms previously used for live sporting events. Live video, pre-recorded video, text, audio, and social commentary will all sit side-by-side, reports the publication VentureBeat.
Damian Kavanagh, the controller of BBC Three, said: "I think this is an exciting way to cover something millions of young Brits love, in a BBC Three way."
Over 27 million people play League of Legend around the world every day, and fans across the globe watched 70 million hours of last year's World Championship.
A recent research report estimated that eSports will generate $1.8 billion by 2020.
