How to watch Evo 2019
Evo is running eight official twitch streaming channels for the tournament: The main Evo channel and evo1 through evo7.
The main Evo channel will be broadcasting The Jump Off, which will have match recaps, highlights, and panel discussion of the weekend’s events. The rest of the channels will show matches from Pools and matches up to the semifinals.
The only game not being broadcast on Evo’s twitch channels is Street Fighter V, which will instead be on Capcom’s Capcom Fighters channel.
The top eight for all games (including Street Fighter V) will be hosted on the main Evo channel.
