E-Sports Catches On in US Broadband Homes

Parks Associates' new industry report Digital Natives: The Rise of Esports and the 360 Deep Dive Sports vs. Esports: Audience, Spending, and Consumption define esports as professionally or semi-professionally organized competitive video gaming events, including popular gaming titles such as "League of Legends," "Call of Duty," and "Street Fighter."

"Esports is a young, dynamic, and fast-growing industry. While viewership of many traditional sports is waning, esports is well positioned to capture the attention of a generation that grew up playing video games. Today, 62% of U.S. broadband households play video games at least one hour per week," said Hunter Sappington, Research Analyst, Parks Associates. "Esports is currently a niche market, but it has the ability to engage often hard-to-reach demographics."
