Twitch

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

Twitch is a live-streaming service owned by Amazon that focuses on video games and esports content, as well as entertainment and vlogging. The company, which launched in 2011 as a spin-off of the now-defunct streaming platform Justin.tv, quickly outgrew its parent company and was acquired by Amazon in 2014. The company launched partnerships with major game developers including Telltale Games, Ubisoft, and Blizzard, and expanded its own content offerings to include the NBA’s developmental G League and music streaming of exclusive live performances. In January 2018, Twitch announced a two-year broadcast deal with Blizzard’s Overwatch League worth reportedly $90 million.
