DreamHackTV

Users: 36 / 31

DreamHack TV is responsible for producing the official DHTV broadcasts for the Esports stages and tournaments. Anything you see on Twitch or other streaming services is produced by this team.

90% of this team will be staffed by professional contractors, however, they MIGHT accept a few volunteers to help them run the stages. How many volunteers they need (and what they will actually be helping with) is still be decided by the international DreamHack staff. Therefore, positions on this team will not be filled until the few weeks leading up to the event. Because of this, we encourage all applicants to seek other teams if you'd still like to volunteer at the event and you MAY be contacted at a later date to help with DHTV, if the DH staff are impressed by your application.
