GINX TV gets around. Shortly after announcing a partnership to enter Israel, the London based firm has revealed that it’s heading to Canada after establishing a partnership with Super Channel.
GINX Esports TV CEO Michiel Bakker commented: “This exciting new venture allows us to welcome Canadian viewers into the fast growing international ‘realm’ of GINX Esports TV.
“Together with Super Channel we have the right combination of reach, relationships and local programming to create a channel that will bring the best of global esports to Canada and equally to enrich our international channels with programming from the vibrant Canadian esports community.”
The channel will launch across Canada in the spring or summer of 2017. The news was first revealed at the Esports BAR which is currently taking place in Cannes. Bakker detailed how the country has long been in their plans. He noted: “Canada has long been in our sights. It consistently represents a global top ten esports nation and is home to great esports competitions and competitors. We are over the moon to soon be able to reach out to them.”
Super Channel COO, Don McDonald stated: “We are striving to provide unique and relevant entertainment for all members of the household on all devices – and esports is now a key part of this mix.
“Our new venture with GINX allows us to provide Canadian viewers with world-class esports TV, including the shows, events and hosts already enjoyed the world-over. It also provides the Canadian production community with an excellent opportunity to create new esports content, to be seen on Super Channel and potentially distributed around the world through GINX worldwide.”
Esports Insider says: So now Canadians too will have access to a 24/7 esports tv channel as another major partnership is established by the go-getters at GINX TV. The more countries in which esports is broadcast to the mainstream the better, so we hope this new countries trend continues.
