The Overwatch League will receive at least $90M over two years from Twitch in exchange for streaming rights, sources said. In addition to the free tokens, all players have been given 13 new sprays consisting of the twelve team logos and the Overwatch League logo. This in-game currency can only be used for Overwatch League skins.

Watch live or dive into the action later with on-demand videos.

Twitch will also be working with Blizzard to bring new rewards to Overwatch League viewers in the form of exclusive in-game items and Cheermotes which will be announced when they are available. Overwatch publisher Activision-Blizzard's in-house platform MLG.tv will show half of the regular-season contests, but the dominant share of the audience will come via Twitch, which will stream in Korean, English and French everywhere except China.

Overwatch League skins are now available on Overwatch's live server. "Given Overwatch's consistent reign as a top viewed game by our community, we look forward to offering their pioneering style of league play to a large and passionate fanbase that will be able to bond over not only their favorite plays, but hometown pride". Honours that comes with a whole lot of green to the tune of $125 000 for the winners of each of the season's four five-week long stages, with a final overall Overwatch League Champion prize of a cool $1 million. If you're lucky enough to be in the Los Angeles area, you can actually get tickets to see the matches go down in person at the Blizzard Arena.
