You’d be hard pressed to find a gamer who doesn’t think that eSports is growing at a massive rate. If you take the amount of overseas action we’ve been seeing, it’s a given that competitive gaming is huge.
One business that has sprung up to fill the need of professional coverage is Peanut Gallery TV. Started as a two man operation in Brisbane, PGTV moved quickly to secure a space at the table of eSports businesses.
Australia and the Oceanic region are often skipped over when it comes to eSports coverage. We’re seen as a pretty small pond.
PGTV’s mission according to co-founder James ‘Jimneso’ Cowan is to bring high production quality coverage to the eSports scene and make sure Australian gaming talent isn’t overlooked at an international level.
We sat down with the current 4-man roster of Peanut Gallery TV on the last day of PAX Australia after they finished up a marathon 3 days of casting live events.
