Episode 2 - Matt Low & Spiro Khouri | The Gaming Stadium

Season 1, Ep. 2
Some of the things we discuss include:
  • The rise of esports and how it's creating limitations and challenges for local venues to be able to keep up with demand in the esports community. It's now to the point where venues can't handle the requirements to be able to run a tournament smoothly. This is where The Gaming Stadium will be the solution for hosting larger events going forward.
  • How Twitch allows you to you share your passion, whether that's video games, singing, dancing or just talking with other people. We also touch on how easy it is to explain live streaming and Twitch to someone who is brand new to the concept.
  • Streaming is becoming more acceptable the more media coverage it gets and the more people start doing it and talking about it in general conversation. This acceptability also leads to a shift in how people watch videos, going from watching them on cable tv to streaming them on demand.
  • There are differences between casual and professional gamers and that difference even spans across the differences between games that people play.
  • Advertising on Twitch and how, if done right with the right intentions, can offer many advantages to a company or brand who is looking to grow.
