In this sense, Twitch has been one of those platforms that has stood out the most in this field, thanks to the fact that it allows the transmission of hundreds of video games live through its service of streaming. While it also broadcasts other types of content, undoubtedly the player's appearance was what stood out the most.

Where does Twitch come from?

This is a product belonging to the famous online company Amazon. It came out in 2011, born with the mission of providing support to the sports sector, especially electronic sports.



Undoubtedly, it set a trend, and it took Amazon just 3 years to acquire it in 2014 for an amount, no more and no less, of $ 970 million.

At the moment, you can enjoy its services through its PC version, although it is available also for iOS and Android, as well as implementing its tools in console software such as Xbox and PlayStation.
