ESGN, the eSports Global Network, has launched two new sites today to cover professional videogaming: ESGN (www.esgn.com), and its web-based broadcast site, ESGNTV (www.esgntv.com). They've partnered with Europe's ESL, China's GameFy, and Korea's GomTV to bring worldwide eSports coverage. Both sites are available now for free.
ESGNTV is a 24-hour broadcast network that will run continuous eSports coverage, hosted by fDan "Frodan" Chou and produced by former ESPN producer Morgan Stone.
A competitive show called Fight Night will kick things off, showing games like Starcraft II, Hearthstone, and Street Fighter.
The network is in beta now, with a full launch planned for early 2014.
