Hulu dives into eSports with four ESL-made shows


Player V. Player will be a gamified debate show featuring eSports influencers discussing the latest eSports topics. They’ll earn points as they debate and wrap up each show by playing a classic video game. Another show, Bootcamp, will follow CS:GO team The Immortals as they find three new players and train for November’s IEM Oakland event. Defining Moments will be a series that covers the major, history-defining moments of eSports with each episode focusing on a specific theme, such as trick-shots, controversial moves and reflex skills. And lastly, ESL Replay will be a quickly paced, documentary-style recap of the best moments from four of the biggest eSports tournaments around the world.

ESPN has played host to quite a bit of eSports content and TBS, NBC and Disney XD have jumped into the ring as well. Facebook, Twitter and PlayStation Vue have also aired eSports competitions this year while this deal with ESL is Hulu’s first foray into the world of eSports. All four series are set to premiere this fall.
