Esports Production Summit: Making Sense of the Elusive World of Esports Viewership, Consumption
Founder of Esports Charts Ivan Danishevskyi offers an analytical take on esports ‘ratings’

This presentation by Esports Charts founder Ivan Danishevskyi offers a look at the state of the market in terms of esports-content consumption.
