Default E-Sports

I was just wondering what you guys think of E-sports and where they are going in the future.

We all know the classics like Dota, CS, Star Craft but recently with the growth of streaming and popular games like League of Legends E-sports has become bigger today than I could have imagined 5 years ago.

Do you think e-sports will become mainstream TV programming? Large LoL tournaments already bring in more viewers than many T.V shows.

Or do you think that they will remain on live streaming clients but continue to grow?

I guess alternatively the fad could pass but that for me is hard to see with the recent rampant growth.

I personally think with the growth of video games and the quality of games that are coming out they should grow. However I also think the era of cable and satellite is over and soon everything will be streamed over the internet (most university students already only use the internet anyways).
