Disney Makes eSports Regular Programming with Disney D|XP

In an announcement last week, Disney stated that two new shows would be joining its lineup. The new segment, Disney D|XP, features two shows centered around eSports.

ESL and Disney made the announcement shortly before EVO 2017 kicked off. The top 8 matches of both Street Fighter V and Super Smash Bros. Wii U aired on Disney’s new block.

Aside from Evo programming, Disney and ESL announced two shows: ESL Brawlers and ESL Speedrunners.

The former follows a group of players through six episodes, with a seventh special episode featuring Vainglory, a mobile MOBA, versus various community influencers.

We don’t know what ESL Speedrunners entails just yet, with programming slated for an August release.
