As we understand it Sky has purchased the broadcasting rights from Valve Software for Counter-Strike in the UK and the firm intends run regular TV shows around organised competitions for screening on Sky Sports Extra.

No further details were available at time of writing but we'll keep digging.
Intrigued to see what theyre going to do with this, as cool as it could be for the UK e-sport scene, it could also go quite easily go the wrong way.

Oh I can picture it now.

Andy Gray and his analysing machine going over the best bits ;

*cue scottish voice*

" Ohh, look at the hack-uracy on this headshot - blatent attempt at a hack right there and it was missed by the stewards. "

Cue lots of the 3D rendering with lines and the computer calculating distances and lots of free-cam rotations

It will never work
