Call of Duty Championship to be Aired on SkySports TV

SkySports will air the Call of Duty Championship every night starting at 9 pm GMT.

This year's Call of Duty World League Championship keeps getting better and better. Stronger competition, a huge prize pool, and now a television network planning to air Call of Duty for the first time on live television. 

Sky Sports, a European television network, announced they will be present at the Call of Duty World League Championship from start to finish and will air the action on Sky Channel 470 / Ginx eSports TV every night from Sep. 1 to Sep. 4 at 9 pm GMT. 

This is a big year for esports on television. Halo was aired on ESPN during the X Games, Heroes of the Storm came back for the second year in a row on ESPN, and Turner's ELEAGUE broadcasted the very best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams nine weeks in a row at their Atlanta studios and plan to do the same with newly released Overwatch.

Is this the future for esports? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @GAMURScom.
