“This exciting new venture allows us to welcome Canadian viewers into the fast growing international ‘realm’ of GINX eSportsTV,” said GINX eSportsTV CEO Michiel Bakker. “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.”

He added: “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.”

This new eSports channel will be part of Super Channel’s four multiplexed channels and will launch across Canada in the spring/summer of 2017.

“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,” said Super Channel COO, Don McDonald. “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.”
