Facebook Live broadcasts is one of the ways Activision is bringing eSports to the masses.
Activision to bring Call of Duty eSports livestreams to Facebook Live
Activision Blizzard’s eSports division has announced some of the new content and distribution partnerships the network has entered into.
Next month’s MLG Anaheim Open will be the start of a “deeper collaboration” with Facebook, which means MLG.tv broadcasts will be streamed live through Facebook. A two-day Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 tournament will kick things off on June 10.
Activision also debuted MLG’s Enhanced Viewing Experience at the 2016 IAB Digital Content NewFronts. This service provides HD streams with built-in match sats and updated leaderboards.
This is all part of Activision’s plans to bring eSports to more people, as evident by its MLG purchase earlier this year.
