Overwatch League ratings were revealed Tuesday for the inaugural season playoff quarterfinals on Disney XD.

Overwatch League had about 127,000 viewers on Disney XD, putting the channel in the top 150 for original cable and network television programs. Disney XD is rarely in the top 150 for the Friday night time period and it is a good start for the partnership between Blizzard and Disney.


Combined with the viewers from the Twitch stream, the Overwatch League has been averaging around a little more 200,000 thousand viewers without factoring the viewers from ESPN3. Considering the hype and buzz surrounding the OWL and its partnership with Disney, pundits will sure to be monitoring viewership as the ​playoffs continue.
