Target has partnered with online video platform Twitch.tv to stream a live, online portion of the 2017 US Open, the first major tournament of its kind in the company’s history.
In addition to Twitch, Target is also offering the event through its online store.
The first round, played on Wednesday, will feature a $3,000 prize pool.
The second round will feature $1,000 and $500, respectively.
The US Open has never been streamed live.
Instead, players compete online by creating matches and using the game’s official platform, Twitch.TV.
That’s where the competition will be hosted.
The event’s broadcast will air on a dedicated Twitch channel that players can tune into using their preferred streaming app.
Target’s Twitch channel will stream the first round of the US Open on Wednesday at 1:00 p.m.
PT (5:00 a.m., ET).
The live stream will include commentary from the tournament’s official site, where the live stream is also available to watch.
The US Open will also be available via YouTube, the streaming platform that Target owns and is currently the largest online video destination for live sports.
The channel is available for $9.99 a month, with plans to increase the subscription to $12.99 per month in the coming months.
Target will also stream the second round of competition on Wednesday.
The livestream will be streamed at 1 p.p.m ET on Wednesday through Twitch.
At 5:00 am ET, the match will be played, which will air live on the channel at 3:00pm ET.
The match will also include commentary by the US National Team’s national broadcaster, ESPN.
Players can also watch the matches on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitch.
Players can also stream their own matches on the Target Twitch channel.
Players who sign up to stream the match can then vote for the top three players to advance to the main tournament.
In the main event, players play two games of doubles against the other player.
In addition to the match, Target will also have live coverage of the Grand Slam of Badminton.
The Grand Slam will be held in the United States on Wednesday on the US Tennis Center court, with a total prize pool of $1.7 million.
The tournament, which features some of the most decorated players in the world, is also a first for the USTA.
Players in the Grand Prix of Badass Minding will play against the World Badminding Championships in Japan on Wednesday and Thursday.
Players in the World Minding Championships will play their matches on Thursday and Friday.
The two events are expected to generate more than $500 million in revenue for the United Nations and International Tennis Federation, according to Forbes.
Target has previously streamed some of its events, including the USATF’s World Middling Open, Badmending Grand Slam and Badmarding Open.
The 2017 USOpen will be broadcast live on ESPN.
Target’s partnership with Twitch.com will be an exciting opportunity for fans to watch matches in real time and see players competing live.
Target also is adding live streaming capabilities to the online store, which should help to increase its overall online presence and viewership.
Target is offering a limited number of shirts at Target stores throughout the US, including online stores and select Target-branded retailers.
