Starting with the 2019 Summer Split, Pro View will give fans greater control of their viewing experience and the ability to follow individual players through a suite of long-requested features. Pro View, League’s newest esports streaming product, will be available for purchase through watch.lolesports.com and proceeds will directly support teams in the LEC & LCS. In addition to Point of View streams for every player in every game, Pro View will include:
- Multiview: Watch up to four synchronized streams (POV or main event) at once during live games and VODs
- Advanced Timeline: Kills, tower takedowns and other big plays are marked right on the timeline, and clicking a marker jumps to that moment in the game
- Watch With Friends: Share a personalized Pro View URL to synchronize your timeline with friends.
- All Pro View features will available on VODs as well as during live games
At launch Pro View will be available for two leagues, the LCS & the LEC, and will come in two different levels, Regional Access & All Access. We will be adding additional leagues and content over time.
- Regional Access will allow you to use Pro View for a single League of your choice
- All Access will allow you to use Pro View for both Leagues (LCS & LEC)
