Hulu is Getting Four New Esports Shows
Hulu is dipping its toes into the esports pool for the first time ever. The on-demand service recently announced it's partnering with ESL to add four exclusive new shows to its roster. The four series are Player v. Player, a debate show; Bootcamp, a weekly docu-series following CS:GO team The Immortals; Defining Moments, a deep dive into esports relatively young history; and ESL Replay, a documentary-style recap of four of the biggest esports tournaments in the world.
"Esports is one of the fastest growing areas of media and entertainment, and, through this first-of-its-kind deal with ESL, we can now bring the popular world of esports to Hulu," said Hulu Vice President of Content Acquisition Lisa Holme in a press release. "We know our viewers, especially those watching Hulu on consoles, are hungry for this type of content – so we’re excited to offer it on Hulu for the first time."
