Dhaka/Singapore, 25 November, 2021 – TechStorm, Southeast Asia’s largest and leading 24/7 Asian Esports, gaming and tech media network has announced its inaugural launch in Bangladesh. From late November, TechStorm’s content is available on both Toffee and Binge, which are premier video streaming apps carried by Banglalink, one of the country’s leading digital communications service provider with 35 million subscribers; and Robi Axiata, the country’s second largest mobile provider with 51 million subscribers, respectively.
