Australia Launches Its First 24 Hour eSports, Gaming Network

Adam Turner reports in the Sydney Morning Herald: “Australian eSports stars are stepping onto the world stage, as our country’s first 24/7 eSports and gaming network has begun live coverage of multi-million dollar international gaming tournaments.”

“The local launch of the Malaysian-based eGG ‘Every Good Game’ network arrived on Fetch TV just in time for the finals of the Dota 2 Boston Major over the weekend, the first event of the 2016/17 Dota 2 championship season. Three Australian gamers were in the mix as 16 international teams competed for a slice of the $4 million prize pool, playing Valve’s super-popular team-based arena game.”

Said eGG’s Australian co-host and eSports commentator Danelie Purdue: “eSports in Australia doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. It has a lot of passionate followers but unfortunately it tends to fly under the radar even though there are plenty of tournaments in Australia.”
