MLB’s streaming arm will broadcast League of Legends tournaments in $300 million deal

The agreement is a big milestone for e-sports. BAMTech is essentially the gold standard of live-streaming, handling the entire digital backend for the National Hockey League, Professional Golfers’ Association, and other big-name streaming apps like ESPNWatch and HBO Now. That BAMTech has decided to commit such a sizable investment in the competitive side of a game like League of Legends means the traditional sports industry is taking serious financial interest in the future of e-sports. – Nick Statt, The Verge http://ift.tt/2gTZBPf
