Amazon Purchases Twitch
Amazon founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos, said, "Broadcasting and watching gameplay is a global phenomenon and Twitch has built a platform that brings together tens of millions of people who watch billions of minutes of games each month,"
Personally I think this is a win on both ends of the stick due to the fact that partnered streamers on Twitch will become associates of Amazon, allowing them more opportunities to increase revenue by referring viewers to Amazon. This could also lead to an increase of gaming related purchases through the mega-company’s website.
While the details of what this deal means for the world’s largest streaming website are uncertain, we should definitely see some changes now that Twitch has the resources to do what they want. Tweet us at @eSportsNation about what you would like to see from Twitch in the future!
