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.
