Overwatch League Partners With Twitch In Two-Year Broadcast Deal

In total, that's technically 312 new color variant skins available; one for each hero per team's color scheme. To get the skins costs tokens, which are $5 for 100 tokens. Home-team "jerseys" are now available for all 12 teams and all 26 Heroes. It's an exciting time for esports, as Blizzard vies to prove that city-based teams that are constructed similar to physical sports are just as viable for the future of esports.

In massive news for the esports industry, popular online streaming service Twitch has partnered with the Overwatch League in order to provide a steady outlet to broadcast the league's first two seasons to internet users and esports fans across the globe. The first round of matches will start tomorrow, and Twitch has secured exclusive media rights for the first two Overwatch League seasons.

Fans of professional Overwatch have been eagerly anticipating a seamless Overwatch League viewing experience. Overwatch publisher Activision-Blizzard's in-house platform MLG.tv will show half of the regular-season contests, but the dominant share of the audience will come via Twitch, which will stream in Korean, English and French everywhere except China. After all, Overwatch already has an existing player count of more than 35 million worldwide, and with the game's third-party stream going to Twitch's viewership-which boasts an audience bigger than HBO or Netflix-there's definitely some major potential for the team-based shooter to push eSports toward universal appeal. Among those, the Los Angeles Valiant announced on Tuesday that it will compete at the Microsoft Theater in LA Live starting in Season 3, which is owned by one of its investor groups, Anschutz Entertainment Group.

With Overwatch League kicking off its first ever season, Game director Jeff Kaplan recently teased that League-themed skins would be added to Overwatch.
