Riot’s LCS locked in a new streaming partner, adding Caffeine to its arsenal to carry competitive League of Legends programming.
“As our audience continues to grow and evolve, we’re excited to bring the LCS to new platforms and distribution channels ensuring our fans are able to watch the broadcast on their preferred devices,” said Matt Archambault, Head of Esports Partnerships and Business Development for North America at Riot Games. “We’ve seen demand from our community around new streaming platforms and we’re excited to work with Caffeine to see what engaging content our community and aspiring shoutcasters will be able to create with our broadcasts.”
Fans of the League of Legends org will be able to stream and live host the official LCS program every weekend through the remainder of the 2019 Summer Split regular season, as well as the playoffs and finals.
“We’re proud to partner with Riot Games to help LCS fans and aspiring shoutcasters experience this content like never before,” said Caffeine Founder and CEO Ben Keighran. “Our platform will deliver these matches with almost no latency, allowing fans to watch as if they were there, while also offering aspiring shoutcasters the ability to live host their own streams of the event and interact with fans in real time.”
