Overwatch League Heading To ESPN Starting Tonight
Fans will be able to root for their favorite Overwatch League teams tonight as the first day of the quarterfinals begins. There's a twist, however. Instead of watching the festivities online, viewers will be able to tune into the action on live TV, thanks to a newly announced partnership between Disney and Blizzard.
Starting tonight, at 7 and 10 p.m. Central, viewers can watch the league's day-one quarterfinals on Disney XD and ESPN3. The broadcasts will continue through July 29's season recap, on a variety of affiliated networks including ABC.
It's part of a multiyear partnership that will continue next year, as the league enters year two.
