Esports. Tapping for Glory

Gaming is huge – nearly 3 billion people around the world play video games. But only a few turn their virtual fun into a highly paid career reality. Cyber athletes train and earn as much as traditional sportsmen, while esports events draw millions of viewers and fans from across the world.

Take a closer look at elite video gaming as esports players, game developers, and industry insiders explain the nitty-gritty of their world. ‘Esports. Tapping for Glory’ lays bare the challenges of becoming a professional gamer and how esports have become big business – and how its cultural significance will one day equal that of traditional sports.

Watch "Esport. Tapping for Glory" on RTD website and on RT's live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT's schedule page.
