The Business Model of Twitch
Twitch is a video live streaming platform allowing users to stream their favorite video games, to watch them, and to chat within the community. The service features a large database with a huge variety of games to be broadcasted and to be used by dedicated and professional gamers to demonstrate their skills. The most popular games on Twitch are competitive games such as Dota 2 or League of Legends. In August 2014, Twitch was acquired by Amazon that has become increasingly interested and committed to gaming over the last years.
