Twitch Logo

Don’t usually post news items such as this, but it is relevant since many of us use this for streaming.

Amazon has officially bought Twitch for $970 million. According to Twitch the company will remain independent from Amazon,  “keeping most everything the same,” but will have access to more resources to improve their service.

Google had been rumored to be on track to purchase Twitch. The deal fell through when Google became concerned of Anti Trust issues from the acquisition.

Lets hope that not much changes on how Twitch does business, such as being able to directly upload to YouTube. We will have to wait and see.
