Riot will also be broadcasting the first episode of Arcane on its Twitch channel, in addition to hosting the premiere event for the show. The premiere of Arcane will mark the first time in Netflix’s history that one of its programs will be able to be streamed elsewhere. 

The first three episodes of Arcane will launch on Netflix tomorrow, Nov. 6, at 9pm CT, with more episodes scheduled to release throughout the month.
