London, 27th April, 2017 –The Esports Industry Awards are delighted to confirm that online streaming service NOW TV will be the 2017 award’s official and exclusive naming partner.
NOW TV, an award winning streaming service, gives access via contract-free passes to some of the latest and greatest TV, movies and sports on over 60 devices, including PS4 and Xbox One.
The newly named ‘NOW TV Esports Industry Awards’ are returning after a sold-out debut in 2016 and will be held, once again, at The Brewery, London on November 13th 2017.
The partnership will see both brands come together to deliver a best-in-class Esports ceremony to recognise excellence and achievements across a range of disciplines. The evening will honour the industry’s best players, teams, media, hardware providers, games, events and personalities in this sector who have made outstanding contributions over the past year.
Tom Mercey, organiser of the NOW TV Esports Industry Awards commented: “Last year was an outstanding success for us and we were privileged to celebrate on the night with some of the biggest names in Esports. We are very excited to be partnering with NOW TV for the second year running, as their passion for exceptional entertainment and online streaming means that we are very confident of delivering an event that’s even bigger and better in 2017.”
Last year 18 awards were given out to teams, broadcasters, journalists, players, hardware providers and more. Almost 90,000 people tuned in to watch the show online.
This year’s event will be hosted by TV presenter OJ Borg, Nicki Shields and Julia Hardy with nominations now open! The entire event will be streamed live on the night across the globe thanks to our broadcast partners, Gfinity. Click here to watch last week’s launch broadcast via Twitch.
