Turner Broadcasting made waves in September with the announcement it would host an esports league featuring Counter-Strike on the company’s cable television channel TBS Network. The league is set to play host to some of the world’s biggest teams and best players while presenting the game to a brand new audience. […] Turner’s efforts won’t be strictly relegated to television, however. In fact, the majority of its content will live online in digital form, just as most existing competitive gaming events do. The company plans to work with an established streaming platform such as Twitch, Hitbox or YouTube Gaming, though it hasn’t yet decided on a particular partner. – Jared Wynne, The Daily Dot
