Xfinity and Twitch: What’s the connection?
Comcast’s Xfinity service is now the exclusive broadcaster of select Twitch content in the U.S., the companies announced today. The multi-year agreement will see Xfinity TV customers gain access to Twitch content through their set-top boxes and the Xfinity Stream app.
This is a big get for Comcast, which has been trying to court the lucrative gaming market for some time now. The Xfinity Games app, which launched last year, is one example of this strategy.
Twitch, meanwhile, is the world’s leading live streaming platform for gamers with more than 15 million daily active users. The Amazon-owned company has been on a tear lately, signing exclusive deals with several major publishers.
The Xfinity-Twitch partnership is a win-win for both companies. Comcast gets to offer its customers another way to consume content, while Twitch gets to expand its reach to a wider audience.
