On July 18th, the first channel dedicated to video games was launched in Israel at the Level Up gaming bar. The station will be focused on video game-related broadcasts and other forms of original esports content.
The Gaming Channel is available to watch for free on Channel 66 on HOT. At this time, it is being reported that the station will soon be made available to view on other media platforms.
Shortly after the launch, it was revealed that ESL Gaming had been given exclusive broadcasting rights for The Gaming Channel in Israel. This means that select ESL Gaming events will be broadcast on the TV channel throughout the remainder of this year.
“We are thrilled to partner with The Gaming Channel and to thereby offer the esports community in Israel localized broadcasts of some of the world’s biggest esports competitions,” said Frank Uddo, the Senior Vice President of Media Rights at ESL Gaming. We are looking forward to this new partnership with The Gaming Channel and further expanding our local reach.”
