Report: Twitch Signs Two-Year Deal With Overwatch League Worth at Least £66 Million

Overwatch League: Twitch snaps up broadcast rights

Games broadcasting platform Twitch and publisher Blizzard have signed a last-minute deal handing the streaming service exclusive third-party rights to the Overwatch League.

Oh and before I forget, in numerous rounds I watched it was fantastic Widowmaker play that sealed the win for the teams. Viewers will also be able to participate in a "viewership reward system" which grants in-game rewards that are Overwatch League inspired loot. Pre-seasons matches will be broadcasted only through Major League Gaming. The end of each stage greets winners with a prize pool of $125,000.

Beyond the fact that the deal runs for two years, and excludes China, terms were not disclosed, though Sports Business Daily reported it was worth $90 million. Valiant displayed stellar teamwork, timing key ultimates just right to make for effective attacks.

As such, they're fairly low on the radar right now, and they didn't put up much of a fight against Los Angeles Valiant, losing 0-4.

Twitch Paid $900 Million For Overwatch League Exclusive Live Stream

From January until June this year, Blizzard will host the Overwatch League, or OWL, the company's push for an esports organization modeled after traditional sports. Teams are color-coded, with them not only wearing their respective skins while playing, but their HUDs also representing their team colors. Dallas walked away with the first win, but the pace picked up at Temple of Anubis.

Kim "Geguri" Se-yeon became a big name in the Overwatch scene when she was just 17, after she was bombarded with cheating accusations and death threats over her masterful play of pink-haired better-biceps-than-you-haver Zarya. More viewers are expected to watch the game between the Seoul Dynasty and Dallas Fuel when the time hits 8:00 PM (PDT). While the second map was nearly a stale mate, Seoul made quick work of Dallas in Ilios, where their unique compositions and signature aggressive playstyle earned them a quick 2-0 win. Seoul continued their winning streak on Ilios with a fast 2-0 victory, before the night ended with a draw on Numbani.

Even though the game is being held in the morning which is a rather inconvenient time to watch, the Korean channel, in particular, shows a somewhat remarkable number of 18,000 viewers. London Spitfire's strip is the nicest, naturally, maybe followed by Florida Mayhem's - tonight's match should be easy on the eye, then!
