Twitch launches a dedicated esports directory

Twitch

It’s only taken two third-party app releases, but Twitch has finally has a dedicated esports directory on its website. The directory, which has no doubt been influenced by the likes of JukedGG and Popdog, will now help fans keep a track on what’s going on in the esports world, what they can watch, and when.

The new section is set to roll out to users over the next few days and will allow users to watch live events, view old matches, discover new esports, and learn from all the top players. The directory will also recommend esports-related channels for you to watch based on your viewing history.

This should help fans keep on top of the many online leagues at the moment, while encouraging them to explore lesser known competitive leagues like the one Giants Software has set up for Farming Simulator.

Of course, some of the big leagues, like the Overwatch League and Call of Duty League, are streamed exclusively on YouTube, so it’s a smart move for Twitch to put all its esports content in one place and show off what it’s got.
