From this summer, viewers will be able to watch EBL (League of Legends) live and exclusively on SPI Filmbox’s Gametoon HD channel, which is available worldwide in English and will soon also be offered in Polish.
Commenting on the development, Revi Benshoshan, director of acquisitions at SPI International, said: “It is with great pleasure that I announce the SPI/FilmBox’s Gametoon HD channel is the sole carrier of EBL (League of Legends), the biggest regional esports competition featuring the most popular online video game ever.
“It is only fitting that SPI, one of the most strategic and competitive media companies in the world, signed an exclusive licence agreement with Fortuna Esports, a prominent player in the field of esports event management. This summer, Gametoon HD is the only channel in the world where you can watch Esports Balkan League (League of Legends).”
Gametoon HD viewers can watch the livestream of EBL (League of Legends) anywhere in the world, starting from June 24 until the finals on August 24, between 19:00 – 23:00 CEST. Season Five of EBL covers ten countries: Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, North Macedonia, Slovenia, Montenegro and Albania.
Mihajlo Jovanovi?-Džaril, founder and CEO of Fortuna Esports, added: “We are thrilled about our partnership with SPI/FilmBox and because Esports Balkan League will be available to an even wider audience through Gametoon HD in its upcoming fifth season.
