Moving Towards Resolving Coverage Changes

Previously, all Magic Grand Prix coverage, both written and video, was handled by Wizards of the Coast and streamed at But then last month, after no one showed up to cover Grand Prix New Jersey, Wizards revealed that they would no longer be providing live text or video coverage of any future Grand Prix.

ChannelFireball, which was given the exclusive rights to organize Grand Prix in 2017, stepped up to provide text coverage of the next Grand Prix in Toronto, but not video coverage, leaving many to wonder if Grand Prix would ever regain video coverage. Today’s announcement answers that question, at least for “select” Grand Prix.

We reached out to ChannelFireball for comment but did not hear back before publishing.

UPDATE: Added info about the extent Wizards’ and CFB’s agreement.
