Twitch.tv

Twitch.tv
The twitch.tv live streaming website was founded back in 2011 the owner is Amazon. This is an excellent website with a huge popularity of gamers worldwide enabling them to interact with there audiences while they live stream there videos.

Twitch allows members to view the streams and also allows members to sign up for free. You can watch or start your own stream which is good if you initially want to great a fan base audience online in the gaming community. Twitch.tv was launched back in June 6, 2011. There is more than just live game streaming there is also contests and competitions you can join in on and top giveaways. Twitch is one of the most popular live streaming websites similar to Mixer.

Twitch members can be banned if they are seen streaming any game which is only for adults. So no adult gaming is allowed, this as been stated by them. But what does not make sense with this as there guidelines I still see members playing and streaming games such as GTA V which to me is an Adult gaming with explicit language. Apart from that Twitch is an excellent source for the fellow gamer to reach out to gaming fans for any gaming platforms.

Pros
  • Great for live streaming gaming videos
  • Watch top live streamers worldwide
  • Great for Tutorials for your favorite game.

Cons
  • Trolls everywhere whos job is to try ruin your stream
  • Can easily get abuse from other users

Twitch

This was an easy decision for me. I'm not a streamer but I would much rather use Twitch because of the fact that it is a much larger platform. You are much more likely to get a bigger audience from Twitch and make much more money from advertising and sponsorships as well. This is actually the first time I have heard of Live Streaming Mix, to be honest.

I use Twitch on a more regular basis. Most of my favorite League of Legends streamers stream through Twitch, so it's the platform I'm most familiar with and prefer to watch streams on. I actually haven't heard of Mix, so I can't in good conscious vote for it.

I have never even heard of the Mixer but I definitely know Twitch. Twitch is the most popular gaming streaming platform out there. It brings in the most viewers which also means that it has the most popular streamers.

You can find any sort of game on Twitch. Even the old retro ones! I really love it.

I am not a gamer. To be honest, the CONs about trolls is a real turn off for both of them. I'm just jumping on the Twitch bandwagon because everybody else is on it and also because I'm an Amazon affiliate. I earn commissions if I get people to register. LOL.

Best in my opinion

Twitch.tv is owned by Amazon and it's really huge hit because they always offer the best service when it comes to live streaming. I have come across Twitch.tv streaming on more than one occasion and I must confess that it's a world class.

I sometimes watch gaming videos and Twitch is the leader when it comes to online streaming gaming videos, it has the highest number of members and users. What I like about twitch is that it's easy to navigate and to logon to, unlike other platforms where you really need a super fast internet connection so that the live stream won't lag.

Best site

Twitch is just the best when it comes to live streaming, as it is reliable and have a lot of streamers of various games to choose from, and the interface is smooth and twitch chat is great.

I'm not familiar with Live Streaming Mixer I only know Twitch.tv. I'm aware that Twitch.tv is very popular for the gamer. They have larger audiences compared to Live Streaming Mixer. I've watched some videos on YouTube that streamers are giving away some money to their avid followers which are really awesome.

Twitch, of course!

I prefer this one because it is what I used to use today. And I think I wouldn't need any other platform because I'm contented on its features and it is what some professional gamers recommended to use and they stream on twitch as well.

More popular

I prefer Twitch because it is the most popular game streaming platform right now. They are always implementing new updates and the platform is very easy to use. You can easily start streaming your games and you can also easily subscribe to your favorite streamers. I also haven't experienced any issue while using this platform.

I only know of Twitch

This was a little tricky for me since I didn't know the other platform, so I had to really choose Twitch by default. It's not to say that I like Twitch - it just is more known to me.

The good thing with the Twitch-tv is that it allows anyone to register for free and watch free live streaming videos for free or members can even produce and stream their own videos for free thereby helping them to get wider fan base for their videos.

I like Twitch because it's where I watch my favorite game players. They're always producing content that satisfies their fan base. I wonder how they're able to keep playing and producing videos so often.

This also reminded me that Twitch even has a special app available for smart TVs. I can quite easily watch Twitch streams right off my television! It is great to just lay in bed and watch awesome games.
