Aggregated Media recently announced the launch of A8 Esports, a digital channel dedicated to gaming. According to a press release, A8 will be available in 13 countries through OTT and linear partners. This includes the US, the UK, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, Australia, India, the Philippines, and New Zealand.
“We formed this company because we saw a huge gap in content distribution in esports and games,” said Erik Reynolds, the Founder of Aggregated Media. “By helping these creators, networks and other partners further monetize their content we can bring some additional stability to the esports content creator ecosystem that’s often too weighted in favor of a chosen few big names.”
The channel will feature live coverage of upcoming esports events as well as reruns of famous past competitions. A8 Esports is also expected to showcase various talk shows surrounding the state of the gaming industry.
The channel was officially launched on May 13th.
