Canadian sports media company TheScore may no longer be on TV but that doesn’t mean they’ve given up on improving their product offerings. Since selling TheScore TV channel to Rogers, they’ve doubled down on their mobile and web offerings and their mobile app is still considered among, if not the best mobile sports app on the various app stores.
Now, theScore is the first sports media company to move hard into eSports. While ESPN has broadcast some eSports on its digital ESPN 3 channel, those were just rebroadcasts of the official broadcasters covering those events or brief highlight packages of MLG events. TheScore has launched their own eSports news app and website led by popular eSports journalist Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau.
