GINX Esports TV Coming to New Zealand on Sky TV – NZ Gaming News

Why Add GINX Now?

As we’ve mentioned, Esports have seen rapid growth in popularity recently. This is partly because more millennials are interested in gaming than traditional sports. What’s more, online gaming will be introduced at the 2022 Asian Games as medal events. If that weren’t enough, there are ‘serious discussions’ about adding eSports to the 2024 Summer Olympics.

However, there are a lot of platforms that could offer more content easily. For example, YouTube and Twitch stream almost every popular gaming tournament. And, it’s usually more reliable than regular TV. On the other hand, fans who prefer more traditional viewing could just sign up to Sky TV just to watch their favourite gamers play.

So, if you’re not looking forward to watching GINX Esports TV already, there will be even more reason to watch soon. After all, almost every big gaming title in the world is getting its own tournament. The most popular include League of Legends and Overwatch.
