Telefónica España signed a strategic agreement with esports event organizer ESL to develop "a platform with exclusive content" for the Movistar+ premium pay-TV offering, according to DIGITAL TV EUROPE. Telefónica is also investing in a dedicated esports content platform and "will also create" a professional esports club -- Movistar Riders -- in Spain. Telefónica said that the deal would place esports "at the core of its content strategy." The two companies will "jointly promote" both amateur and professional esports competitions in Spain to "attract the best" national and int'l talent.
