This is the first of many e-Sports entertainment and content made available through TV and other digital platforms.

"Halo 5: Guardians" is the latest of the "Halo" franchise that is worth around $5 billion dollars worldwide. E-Sports makes up most of the fan base of "Halo 5: Guardians". Events like "Halo" World Championship and the "Halo" Championship Series, where top teams all over the world compete with each other weekly.

Amazon jumped on the e-Sports bandwagon by buying video-game internet broadcaster Twitch and when you talk about e-Sports, Blizzard Entertainment and its widely-popular e-Sports competitions centered on their video games like "Overwatch", "Hearthstone", "World Of Warcraft", and many more titles should not be missed.
