Wednesday 3 October 2018 | 10:35 CET | News
Spanish broadcaster Mediapro is preparing to launch a new OTT platform specialising in e-sports by the end of the year, according to unnamed sources cited by Expansion. The company is hoping to compete with Amazon-owned Twitch, which currently dominates the electronic sports sector with 15 million active users a day who spend an average of 95 minutes watching content live or on demand. Mediapro's platform will be available worldwide but with a focus on 14 to 35 year-olds in Spain and Latin America, with the company aiming to reach 5 million viewers within 5 years, said the report.
