Launched in 2015, Panda TV is one in a string of regional video live-streaming apps that have emerged in China over the last few years as a reaction to US platforms such as Periscope, which is banned. Panda TV is owned by Wang Sicong, the son of China's richest man, and is considered to be one of the main challengers of other successful eSports platforms such as Amazon's Twitch and China's Douyu TV, whose investors include Tencent.

The Panda TV platform broadcasts a variety of professional gamers taking part in tournaments for some of the country's most popular PC games; the top three include League of Legends, CrossFire and Dungeon & Fighter have remained unchanged over the past three years.

As the eSports industry continues to grow, it's clear that a variety of regional streaming platforms will continue to emerge and cultivate an ecosystem of gaming celebrities.
