Where to watch TI11 group stages

Due to the fact that multiple series will be broadcast simultaneously, there will also be other Dota 2 Twitch channels. A good chance exists that Twitch's squad mode, which allows users to watch multiple live streams simultaneously, would be applied to all of these streams.
You can also view highlights and other content related to TI10 on the official Dota 2 YouTube channel.
