Late last year we announced a partnership with Wizards of the Coast to make Twitch the exclusive streaming partner for Magic: The Gathering. Now, we’re excited to share more details about what this epic team up means for you. Let’s dig in, shall we?
First, and most importantly, you’ll be getting more and better live coverage throughout the year. In 2017, Twitch will stream at least 40 Magic events on twitch.tv/magic. That’s nearly twice as many compared to 2016. Here’s how the coverage is breaking down:
Four Magic Pro Tour events
Magic World Championship
World Magic Cup
32 Grand Prix events
Magic Online Championship
Super Sunday Series Championship
But we aren’t stopping there. Throughout the year we’ll continue to look for more opportunities to stream great Magic content from sources far and wide. And don’t forget to tune in this weekend for the new Standard format Pro Tour Aether Revolt, Feb 3–5, live from Dublin, Ireland.
Starting this week, you’ll be able to subscribe to the official Magic channel, twitch.tv/magic. And, of course, with a subscription comes some tasty bonuses like exclusive emotes and Planeswalker sub badge. Repeat subscribers will get leveled up sub badges as well. Ooh and ahh at the hotness.
Subscribers can also expect even more goodies, like exclusive access to members of the Magic R&D team through subscriber-only Q&A’s in Twitch Chat, with additional subscriber-only chats with pro players and casters to come in the future.
The folks at Wizards have been working like mad to give Magic fans the ultimate live streaming experience and are always looking to make more improvements, so feel free to reach out to them on Twitter (@magicprotour and @wizards_magic), Facebook, or Tumblr with your thoughts.
