Esports are coming back to 7Mate

Credit: LPL

LetsPlay.Live are partnering with Channel Seven to bring esports to traditional broadcast audiences in 2020.

Starting from this month, 7Mate viewers will be able to catch matches of the latest LPL Pro Rainbow Six: Siege tournament on Thursday mornings at a sleepy 12AM where teams fight for a cut of a $5000 prize pool.

LPL say that additional esports titles, such as Dota 2 and Rocket League, will be broadcast on 7Mate later in the year. In the meantime, they've released a sizzle-reel for the new partnership - which can be seen below:

According to Duane Mutu, Founder and Managing Director of LetsPlay.Live, “LPL is extremely excited to see esports elevated this year through televised broadcasts in Australia."

“By providing both fans and the general public with more free-to-air esports content, LPL can support the growth of the esports ecosystem within our region.”

The new deal echoes a similar partnership between the two entities in 2019, which saw matches of Rocket League broadcast on 7Mate.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
