In addition to our existing brand of crossover lifestyle content, we are expanding to focus around deeper core gaming topics and doubling down on esports partnerships.
“Everything we are announcing today, paired with our core programming such as The Download and Guest House will help achieve that goal and set ourselves up for continued success in 2021”.

The programme will see Rodruiez sit down with a celebrity, gaming content creator, ‘esports titan’, or leading video game executive each episode to focus on their specific journey in the industry.
