We are thrilled to be working closely with two of the largest esports tourney organisers in the world in 2017.

“Our vision is to forever transform the esports spectating experience by providing new perspectives and insights into live esports streams. In partnering with ESL and DreamHack across these 14 global events, we have the opportunity to showcase our 360 virtual reality, live replays and stats technology to millions of esports fans worldwide.

Product Manager at ESL :

Our partnership with SLIVER.tv at ESL One New York and IEM Oakland last year exceeded our expectations, and our fans, teams and players were blown away by the first-ever live broadcast of CS:GO and League of Legends in VR.

“We are delighted to partner with SLIVER.tv this year across 7 events starting with Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice, Poland where in 2016 we saw over 100,000 attendees and nearly two million peak concurrent online viewers.  With the help of SLIVER.tv we hope 2017 will be even bigger and better.

Marcus Lindmark, CEO, Dremahack

DreamHack was impressed with SLIVER.tv’s success with ESL events last year and its unique offering. We decided to work exclusively with SLIVER.tv globally in 2017 on 7 events and leverage its turnkey end-to-end VR Live Cast platform solution so we can focus on our production.

“DreamHack ASTRO Open is one of the longest running esports circuits in the world with over 150 million started streams alone in 2016. We are looking forward to an even more successful year with the addition of the new 360 VR streams.
