Hulu and ESL have penned a new deal that will have Hulu getting into the esports entertainment market for the first time. Player vs Player, for example, is described as a gameified debate show covering big-deal topics related to esports.

Hulu's push into eSports comes after Twitch recently bought the exclusive third-party live streaming rights to select Blizzard eSports content including more than 20 major Blizzard eSports events taking place throughout 2018.

Video streaming service provider Hulu is going into eSports in a big way after beginning the production of four original series centered on the sector in a bid to capture the attention of competitive video-gaming viewers. They'll earn points as they debate and wrap up each show by playing a classic video game. Bootcamp, meanwhile, is a docs-series that will air weekly and focus on the CS:GO team "The Immortals".

"With the tournament just weeks away, and now three players short of a full team, The Immortals must find new talent and quickly build a cohesive team", ESL said.
