I watch the international but thats about it, only time I watch esports is when im reaaally bored, it wouldnt hurt to have it on a tv channel but not on the main channels.
Although I believe its broadcasted in countries like s.korea anyway.
Maybe. Depending on pricing. I have a PC hooked up to my TV already so can watch anything from twitch on it. I might watch some premium games like LoL big-prize-money championships but probably not enough unique stuff I couldn't watch on Twitch to justify paying a subscription cost.
It would not translate well onto TV. The target audience are people mainly on the computer all day. Thus they should keep it on livestreams on the interwebz.
No, mainly because it's not a sport, it's just an excuse so fat people can say they are athletes.
No. They are a yawn fest mostly. Ratings would be dismal anyway. Also not easy to understand at first.
Wow <3 Korra<3 Giants<3
I love to watch Starcraft e-sports but the thing is, I watch it on my PC and can do other things so to have to go down stairs to watch it on TV would not be as good imo. The best thing about it atm is that I can watch it and pause it when I want to and just do other things on my PC while it is on and listen in
No, I really can't take such things serious like real sports.
I'd find it more interesting than real sports, though games such as Starcraft etc, I tend to hate. Gears of War/Halo and i'd be good to go.
“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956
Don't be so blood close minded, there's more to sports than simple physical activity, it's about teamwork, psychology and strategy.
Yes I would watch them. SC2, LoL, DotA all fun to watch
*sarcasm* I love watching lanky ugly women running around thinking that what they are doing is entertaining.
But really, try watching an women's basketball game, it is impossible.
I've played CS and UT2K4 on a semi-elite level since about 2002, so I guess that gives me some sort of perspective and insight.
I assume I'd watch games of equal skill requirements, from time to time, but never CoD/BF3/starcraft or the likes.
But yeah, seeing as what kind of shit we've got running on TV these days, I bet I'd even watch SC2 stuff.
No, I wouldn't
I don't really watch it on the computer, so I wouldn't on the TV.

Only one I may consider watching is Starcraft since that is the only game I personally consider e-sport worthy.
I used to watch Halo 2 when MLG aired it on TV way back when early in the morning. Now I would just watch a stream.
