Fool.com points out why Amazon, not Activision, could soon corner the eSports market.


NOW ACCEPTING OVER 60 CRYPTOCURRENCIES

Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) has built up the dominant gaming streaming service, Twitch TV, after purchasing Twitch in 2014, and it's here that esports may find its home. It's Twitch TV that agreed to spend $90 million to be the exclusive streaming home of Activision Blizzard's Overwatch League for the next two years, those who are into esports know that it's the place to stream content. At any given time, there are at least half a million viewers streaming game content on the platform, and right now Activision Blizzard's games don't crack the top four. It's that diversity that makes me believe Twitch TV might end up being the biggest winner in esports. 

eSports, as Fool.com rightly notes, will requiring streaming TV.

The number of people watching Overwatch League convinced HP and Intel to agree to reported $17 million and $10 million advertising deals, respectively, with the league.
