Watch Twitch TV on Xbox 360


TwitchTV released a new Xbox 360 app that allows viewers to stream straight from the console. The app is only available for United States Gold subscribers and provides the top 300 live streamers categorized by game, channel or featured content. In the near future, the company will expand to other regions and allow streaming through the app instead of through third-party clients.

“Twitch brings a whole new category of live gaming video content that Xbox 360 owners will love. Now you can get your fill of playing a game, then stay right there on Xbox Live and continue the experience by watching the world play,” said Martin Sacchi, General Manager, Content Acquisition at Xbox.

TwitchTV launched in 2011 by JustinTV. It’s considered the “ESPN” of the game world. You can watch live tournaments of your favorite games or see your friends screwing up in Call of Duty in real time.

According to Major Nelson, over 800,000 gamers currently stream gameplay and over 34 million people subscribe and watch live streams. Following the May 21 Xbox reveal, Major Nelson will moderate an exclusive Twitch broadcast at 3 p.m. ET via the new app or online.

  1. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. Thanks a lot for sharing this with all folks you actually know what you are talking approximately!

    Bookmarked. Please also talk over with my website =).

  3. Right here is the perfect website for everyone who hopes to find out about this
    topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not
    that I really will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic which has been written about for many
    years. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

  4. I’ll right away take hold of your rss as I can not in finding your e-mail subscription link or newsletter service. Do you have any? Kindly allow me understand in order that I may subscribe. Thanks.
