Team Liquid is excited to announce that the TSL3 will be streamed in Korea in partnership with GomTV. Starting this weekend, all TSL games will be broadcast to Korean viewers using the same replay-broadcast system as TL. Popular Korean commentator "Gisado" will cast these matches from Seoul and the Korean broadcast will be synced with the main TSL stream to assure that Korean viewers get the same TSL experience as our international audience.
We hope that this move will strengthen the connection between Koreans and foreigners when it comes to Starcraft and Starcraft 2. While the Korean stream will be only be broadcast to Korean IPs, and all other users will need to join us on the official TSL stream here at Team Liquid, we hope that getting together to watch the same tournament will help our two communities come closer together as we follow this game together in the months to come.
This will be the first time that a Korean E-Sports channel broadcasts a foreign Starcraft 2 tournament, and TL applauds GomTV for being so forward thinking in their approach to the game. We value their support and look forward to working closely with them in the months to come.
GomTV continued to act upon their interest in the non-Korean Starcraft II scene, announcing that they would provide live streaming and VOD services for Korean viewers of TSL3. This was the second major development to emerge this week regarding GomTV and the foreign Starcraft II scene, following previous news that GomTV would invite the winner of the Swedish Rakaka Logitech Tournament to compete in Korea. Earlier in the week, GomTV had released a statement regarding their future e-Sports plans following the present GSL season, which included unspecific remarks regarding their strong desire to cooperate with international tournaments.
GomTV provided a basic overview of the TSL3 tournament in their announcement, but did not provide specific details such as a possible Korean announcing team for their videos. Although the announcement came only days before the start of TSL3, Korean Starcraft II fans were already somewhat aware of the tournament through the reporting of the news site PlayXP.com
