If you needed anymore evidence that Overwatch and its pro league are insanely popular, here it is.
Disney and Blizzard have announced a new partnership that will see Overwatch League broadcasts come to cable networks like ESPN, ABC, and Disney XD.
This partnership is getting going fast too, as the first broadcast is tonight.
Yes, beginning tonight, you’ll be able to watch the Overwatch League playoffs on Disney XD and ESPN3.
The multi-year deal will see the grand finals broadcast on Disney’s various networks later this month, along with season 2 of the Overwatch League.
As ESPN notes in a news article announcing the partnership, this new agreement won’t cancel existing distribution arrangements, meaning that those of you who prefer to watch on other platforms like Twitch can continue doing so.
