The comparison between ABC and Twitch did feel weird. He's basing accessibility on the fact that he might stumble across and NBA final therefore it's more accessbile? I think the argument comparing World Series Poker Tour and Cup Stacking to eSports is stronger than his accessibility argument. I would have liked to see more reasoning like, if World Series Poker is worthy enough for ESPN, then eSports should be as well.
I feel like we are comparing two very different animals here. Just like there are flaws comparing network television to internet broadcasting, there is a problem comparing poker to eSports. Poker is something their current demographic probably wants to see. eSports? Probably not so much.
I can see that. I'd imagine that most people who are watching eSports are computer/internet literate enough to find Twitch and watch it there, rather than on television.
