GINX Esports TV has partnered with the BLAST Pro Series to broadcast its upcoming Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament.
Starting on September 28th, BLAST Pro Series: Istanbul will feature six teams battling it out for $250,000 (£190,331.25).
GINX Esports TV will provide a way for viewers in the United Kingdom to watch all of the action on television. The channel is available on Sky (Channel 433) and Virgin Media (Channel 290) from September 28th at 10pm BST.
BLAST Pro Series is the product of esports media production company RFRSH Entertainment. The Denmark-based company also owns two Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams: Astralis (the best CS:GO team in the world that just won the FACEIT London Major) and Heroic.
It also offers original and reality content production, working with the likes of Audi, OMEN by HP, Microsoft, Twitch, Turtle Beach, and Jack & Jones.
Solenne Lagrange, Marketing Director for GINX Esports TV discussed the partnership in a statement: “With teams such as Astralis, Cloud 9 and Virtus.pro fighting for a $250 000 prize pool, BLAST Pro Series promises to be one very entertaining esports experience. I invite everyone to watch it if they can, regular and first-time esports viewers.”
Just recently, GINX Esports TV hired Caleb Fox as its Senior Vice President of Global Multiplatform Development. He previously served as a Business Development consultant for Games and Esports at Microsoft. This hire coincides with the company’s aim of launching in new territories.
Esports Insider says: GINX Esports TV is doing interesting things with its expansion into new locations and territories, but we’re glad to see it hasn’t forgotten about its UK viewership. The BLAST Pro Series promises to deliver plenty of solid CS:GO gameplay, and it’s nice to know we can turn on the television to watch the action if we wish.
