SonyLIV and Riot Games team up to LIVE stream
With the world going increasingly digital, there has been a transitional shift in the way sports is being viewed. The concept of esports is evolving slowly. Keeping up with the trend and putting forward yet another industry first SonyLIV will now livestream the year’s biggest ever esports event, Riot Games’ League of Legends World Championship - taking place at the Beijing National Stadium also known as ‘The Birds Nest’.
Known for their unrelenting focus on putting players first, Riot Games is one of the world’s premier game developers. Their initial title, League of Legends is a fast-paced, competitive online game that blends the speed and intensity of a RTS with RPG elements and helped define the popular ‘MOBA’ (multiplayer online battle arena) genre. Through SonyLIV’s association with Riot Games, viewers get access to the live stream of League of Legends’ World Championship finals - an annual event with a massive global audience.
Committed to bringing novelty to the mobile screen and giving users a top-notch experience, SonyLIV will stream the championship LIVE on November 4, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. IST. With this association SonyLIV users get access to watch the two teams Samsung Galaxy and SK Telecom T1 fight their battle to win the Summoner’s Cup.
