Ginx eSports TV Canada officially launched in Canada last night with a slate of live eSports events, news and gaming lifestyle programming.

The channel, which replaced Super Channel’s SC4, is available to Super Channel subscribers as part of their existing package.

Michiel Bakker, Ginx eSports TV’s CEO, said: “eSports has experienced massive organic online growth and this partnership is about extending that growth into television.

“As well as covering the big international events, we aim to work with Canadian eSports organisations to report on national events and to showcase the best on our fast-growing international network of over 40 million homes worldwide.”

In related news Super has acquired the second season of Sky’s Arctic thriller Fortitude. The 10×60′ show, sold by Sky Vision, will make its Canadian broadcast premiere on Monday, June 12 at 21.00ET. Each episode will also be available on Super On Demand the day following its weekly linear broadcast.
