Special hosted by gamers, aimed at younger demographic
VUit, the streaming service featuring programming from hundreds of local TV stations, said it is planning to air a special that combines eSports stars with election night returns.
VUit eSports–Decision 2020 will start Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET and run all evening. It will be hosted by well-known gamers including Reaper, Geeb and Gamer Mom, and offer real time data and information from every state, non-biased commentary and behind the scenes activity.
Election night broadcasts–both national and local–tend to skew older and VUit said its programming is designed to be more fun for a younger demographic.
VUit said its eSports channel is no No. 2 on the OTT services curated channel lineup.
Launched by Syncbak and backed by Gray Television, VUit offers ad-supported streams from local stations and original programming. It expects to stream more than 3 million hours of live programming annually.
