It's no secret that esports is blowing up in a big way and one of the largest and most successful brands in the space, so far, has been Blizzard Entertainment and its popular Overwatch League
This year alone, Blizzard struck a two-year, $90 million live-streaming rights deal with Twitch, saw more than 10 million viewers tune in to the Overwatch League's opening week, and is in the final planning stages for its much-hyped Finals at Barclays Center in Brooklyn this July.
On this episode of The SVG Podcast, our Jason Dachman sits down with Jon Spector, Director of Strategy and Team Business Operations for the Overwatch League to discuss all that goes into a production at Overwatch Arena, what the exciting prospects are in esports, and how video production tech plays a role in it all.
The SVG Podcast is for the sports-video–production professional looking to keep up with the latest in sports-video–production operations and technology. The program features interviews with some of the biggest, most influential names in the sports-video business talking trends and topics that are making an impact on the industry.
