Twitch and Steam agree video streaming deal

Video broadcasting service Twitch has signed a new deal to link up with Valve’s digital distribution platform Steam.

Users of both Steam and Twitch can now tie together both of their accounts, allowing players to watch video streams outside of a game.

The news mainly affects DOTA2 players, who will become eligible for tournament item drops while watching a Twitch stream, as long as they own a ticket for that competition.
