Ginx has announced that its eSports TV Channel is available in Israel through Partner's 4GTV app.
The channel is currently available in the app, but will also launch on Partner's TV service in the next few months, meaning that millions of people will have access to the channel.
Michiel Bakker, CEO of GINX eSports TV, commented: “ We are delighted that Partner’s 4G TV App will be the first Israeli platform to launch GINX eSports TV. We aim to provide Israel’s fast growing gaming community with an exciting mix of live eSports tournament coverage from the biggest and best events across the globe as well as a host of eSports entertainment formats, news and behind-the-scenes documentaries. We are looking forward to working with Partner to add local Israeli eSports content to our channel.”
Partner said: " The Israeli gaming community includes hundreds of thousands of people between the ages of 12 to 40, yet eSports TV content in Israel, prior to the launch of GINX, was very limited. Following the great success of the first season of "Legends of Gaming Israel", the local version of the international online-reality format, produced last summer by Partner and Endemol-Shine Israel, we've decided to take eSports in Israel a big step forward, and bring Ginx to our 4GTV and Partner TV platforms. We thank GINX eSports TV and its London-based team, for teaming with us, as we launch the channel's content exclusively on Partner's mobile 4GTV app."
Tal "Fly" Aizik, the world-class Israeli Dota 2 player for professional team OG, commented on the launch: “I'm very excited that eSports is making its way into Israeli mainstream media. Throughout my career, I've represented Israel but there's just not enough pro players from my country for it to matter. I’m glad that GINX eSports TV are able to help shine some light on it."
