Twitch is the world’s largest video platform and community for gamers. More than 20 million gamers gather every month on Twitch to broadcast, watch and chat about gaming.
Twitch TV allows users to watch live streams of whatever someone is willing to film and post, but the service has grown into what it is due to video games. With XBox Live Apps offering services like YouTube, it only makes sense to add Twitch to the mix as well, allowing fans to watch their favorite gaming streams on the machine.
Initially the service is only for Gold subscribers and it's unknown at this time whether or not your premium Twitch credentials will apply to the service on Live.
