The news was revealed during the Overwatch League opening conference, however they've not revealed any specific time for when this new update will go live into the game.

Watch live or dive into the action later with on-demand videos. This two-year deal, which encompasses the entirety of the league's first two seasons, makes that a reality. There are also exclusive interviews and videos to enjoy exclusively through the Overwatch League app, so it's a must-have for fans.

Twitch will serve as the exclusive third-party broadcast partner for the league's regular season, playoffs and championships in three different languages: English, Korean and French. And now they won't have any excuse for not planning their lives around the matches as Blizzard has launched an official Overwatch League app for Android and iOS.

The deal is not a surprise considering that Twitch and Blizzard have a long history of collaborating for esports events.

The Overwatch League will run, at the Blizzard Arena in Los Angeles, until June, with play-offs and finals scheduled for July. The full schedule and information about ticket sales can be found at https://overwatchleague.com/ or you can look at the listings down here.
