“Gaming is what every traditional sport is desperate to become: young, global, digital and increasingly diverse” ESPN, 2015
As esports, the competitive side of gaming, has an estimated 250 million players, brands and media are rushing in to get a share of a market that is expected to grow to 1.5 billion by 2020.
Created in 2010, GINX Esports TV is the largest TV network dedicated to esports. Available in 55+ million homes, across more than 50 territories in 10 languages, GINX Esports TV aims to extend the reach of esports into mainstream sports audiences. We are now recruiting new members to join our team of passionate esports fans.
