“ESGN is too Good to Fail” New eSports Broadcast Launches Jan. 6

Get ready for on-the-hour coverage dedicated to some of the world’s most popular games.

Beginning next year, gamers worldwide can finally look forward to an official destination for 24/7 eSports coverage, thanks to the eSports Global Network (or ESGN, for short.) Earlier today, the company announced that ESGN TV will launch their first episode of “Fight Night” featuring a broad selection of coverage from several well-known faces throughout the respective tournament circuits.

Among the list of guests who are slated to be on the show include, Hearthstone professionals Cong “StrifeCro” Shu, Jeffrey “Trump” Shih, and Octavian “Kripparrian” Morosan along with Dan “Artosis” Stemkoski.

Future episodes will include appearances from StarCraft II pro gamers Manuel “Grubby” Schenkhuizen, Jeong “MVP” Jong Hyeon and Lim “NesTea” Jae Duk will appear on “Fight Night” later in January.  And for those who have genuine interest in the fighting game community can also look foward to seeing iconic names from from the Street Fighter world as international competitors Sun Woo “Infiltration” Lee (South Korea) and Hajime “Tokido” Taniguchi (Japan) will be joined by Ryan “gootecks” Gutierrez  as a caster.

“ESGN is too good to fail,” said Dan “Artosis” Stemkoski. “The production is amazing, everyone is working very hard, they’ve got great ideas and this is original content. It’s not like everywhere else, these are actually original shows being made and I think it’s going to be fantastic.”

Each broadcast is scheduled to run between 60 to 90 minutes and will be the first official eSports program created with top notch production values that you’d expect from televised broadcasts. The best news is this show will be streamed for free to viewers worldwide from the Germany-based studio via supporting broadcast partners Twitch, AzubuTV and DailyMotion.

You can get a sneak peek of the event via the teaser clip which will be released exclusively on the ESGN’s official Youtube channel a few days before Christmas. Stay tuned.
