Weekly schedules are displayed in the new Overwatch League tab in-game. It takes 100 Tokens to purchase a skin, and tokens run from $4.99 or your regional equivalent for 100 Tokens up to $99.99 for 2,600 tokens (enough to buy an entire team's skins for every hero in the game).

For those wondering, that's a new skin for all 26 Overwatch heroes for each of the 12 Overwatch League teams. Only the Home skins are available for the teams, making for a grand total of 312 new skins added to the game. To get the skins costs tokens, which are $5 for 100 tokens.

However, the money you pay won't be going to Blizzard, but instead will be used to fund the actual teams.

In massive news for the esports industry, popular online streaming service Twitch has partnered with the Overwatch League in order to provide a steady outlet to broadcast the league's first two seasons to internet users and esports fans across the globe.

Olympiacos confirms Mirallas move

Fans of professional Overwatch have been eagerly anticipating a seamless Overwatch League viewing experience. For those more fragal players, you'll get that one free skin based off of that first time login bonus. Players tuning in to Twitch during live matches will also be eligible to receive various in-game items as rewards, and though we don't know what the awards might include, the Overwatch League team plans to release more information about different rewards soon. Activision Blizzard stated it will announce more details around these in-game rewards in the future.

Samsung Unveiled a 146-inch Modular TV it's Calling "The Wall"
Its the worlds first modular MicroLED TV and while its huge, its really the technology behind it that has us more excited. We noted when LG teased its 88-inch 8K OLED TV last week that CES is a haven for absurd, if not impressive, TV concepts.

The final bit of news came this morning, where after much speculation and confusion, Blizzard announced a two-year partnership with Twitch. "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".

Esports Insider says: It nearly feels typical of the Overwatch League that we've got to the day before the first match before having any idea of where we can watch it.
