Justin.tv owned gaming video service Twitch has posted some very impressive numbers for February 2013.
Last month the site hosted over 600,000 unique broadcasters that between them attracted 28m unique users. More impressively, each of these users watched an average of over 1.5 hours of video… every day.
Twitch launched in June of 2011 and our growth ever since has exceeded even my expectations, which were not small,” CEO Emmett Shear stated. A year and a half later, the community of broadcasters and viewers has multiplied hundreds of per cent.
Brands like Electronic Arts, Activision and Sony Online Entertainment have begun integrating Twitch directly into their products, charities have collectively raised more than three million dollars using Twitch as a platform, and conventions are now turning to Twitch as their exclusive streaming partner.
We want to make broadcasting a standard piece of the gaming experience, and we're starting to realize that goal.”
