eSports is a growing genre of film, with huge increases of viewership not only on internet services like Twitch and YouTube Gaming, but also with broadcasters across the globe.

Particularly in the UK, The BBC already became one of the first to broadcast eSports content, live streaming the League of Legends tournament on BBC Three earlier last year.

Today it has been announced that Sky will soon be joining them, set to air a two-hour show dedicated to eSports on Sky 2 at 10PM.

The show will include highlights from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Starcraft II tournaments that have taken place at the ESL Intel Master World Championship.

This will make it the first time Sky has covered a major eSports event, however, the broadcaster is also interested in expanding this.

It will be interesting to see if viewers will switch from watching eSports content on their laptop, to watching it on their TV.
