Among those, the Los Angeles Valiant announced on Tuesday that it will compete at the Microsoft Theater in LA Live starting in Season 3, which is owned by one of its investor groups, Anschutz Entertainment Group. Only the Home skins are available for the teams, making for a grand total of 312 new skins added to the game. 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.
Overwatch is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Overwatch League in-game menu isn't just for staring at the shiny new skins - players can watch the games via this menu when they're live. The partnership also brings with it exclusive Overwatch League items in the game itself for some of the most die-hard viewers. In annual terms, the deal is comparable to the seven-year, $300M deal struck in late '16 by League of Legends publisher Riot Games with BAMTech. Preseason games streamed on the Overwatch League homepage and MLG.com, but the question has always been whether Blizzard and Twitch would settle on a streaming deal in time for the start of the League.
Activision Blizzard said the deal was great "for our growing global fan base".

Gruden replaced Joe Bugel after a 4-12 season in 1998 and was 38-26 in four seasons, including AFC West titles in 2000 and 2001. Late owner Al Davis hired Art Shell in 2006, 11 years after firing him the first time.
Missing from the deal is China, home to the biggest e-sports viewing audience, and Mr Harding-Rolls predicted there would be a separate announcement about media partnerships in this country.
The two-year deal with Twitch gives the platform exclusive worldwide rights to all the matches, which will be streamed in English, Korean and French.
The $90M figure may not include other aspects of the Twitch-Blizzard relationship not attributable to the Overwatch League, sources said. 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. "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". 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.
