Movistar+ decision to pull the plug on Movistar eSports, the specialized network that focused on electronic sports and was launched on February of 2017, comes less than 2 years since its release, which was announced with the objective of rebroadcasting competitions like the Intel Extreme Masters, ESL One, ESL Masters, and MotoGP eSports Championship tournaments.
With this decision, U-Beat, the OTT platform specializing on eSports launched by Mediapro Group, is the only eSports referent in Spain. However; Movistar would not back down from the segment. Movistar+ will continue to be the home of eSports. The big events and the most relevant content related to eSports will be available on the 24-hour sports channels in the platform, in the multi-event channels, in Vamos and on-demand.
