Leveraging the live video streaming infrastructure pioneered by the team at Justin.tv, TwitchTV features the highest quality competitions on all games and platforms, with the top gamers, the biggest tournaments, and the best commentary.
"This is just the start of what we want to build,"
said Emmett Shear, co-founder and CTO of Justin.tv, and general manager of TwitchTV.
"We designed this site to support the e-sports community. Since everyone on the team is a gamer, it's a site made by e-sports fans, for e-sports fans."
TwitchTV has forged partnerships with the world's top e-sports personalities and organizations - the best professional gamers, biggest tournaments, and most prestigious leagues - to bring fans the most compelling e-sports video content anywhere in the world.
"TwitchTV wouldn't exist today if it wasn't for our community,"
said Kevin Lin, COO of Justin.tv and VP of business development for TwitchTV.
"The community's input has been instrumental in developing the new site's features and functionality, and their support has been overwhelming. Because of our relationships in the pro gamer community, we've been able to improve our platform and build tools that allow them to develop as professionals."
"TwitchTV is a major initiative for us here at Justin.tv,"
said Michael Seibel, CEO of Justin.tv.
"The community that coalesced around live competitive gaming content is clearly very passionate and growing quickly. We're excited to support that community with a home of their own. We hope the functionality and content featured on TwitchTV will help take the entire e-sports ecosystem to the next level."
