Disney and Blizzard have announced a massive deal involving the Broadcasting of the Overwatch League. The inaugural Overwatch League playoffs will be broad cast on Disney’s extensive network of channels including ABC, Disney XD and ESPN.
The League kicked off recently (11/07) with the playoff rounds and is set to continue on July 27th-28th when the Grand Finals will be broadcast from the Barclay’s Center in New York. The competition will be broadcast on the Disney XD and ESPN channels as well as both of the network’s accompanying apps. When the competition has ended, a recap show will be broadcast on ABC in primetime, which is a big deal as it is the first eSports tournament to be given this slot.
