Infographic shows Twitch Viewers Watched 12 Million Hours of E3 Coverage
Now that the E3 is finally over, the winner has at least the right to flaunt its victory. Twitch, the live streaming websites, is claiming their victory in the war of most viewers.
Twitch released an Infographic today that features the numbers they have hit at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) trade show in Los Angeles. The Amazon-owned company displays the total number of viewers from its coverage.
Twitch is like a roller coaster for now and it is only destined to go up, well we hope it does. The numbers have only increased with each year. This year, Twitch has a total of 21 million unique viewers while it had 12 million viewers in 2014 and 9.5 million in 2013 at the E3.
These 21 million unique viewers collectively watched almost 12 million hours of the E3 content. Although Twitch has been facing a lot of competition in the past but nothing has been able to pull it back yet.
Over the years, YouTube and Hitbox have been giving the company most of the competition as they dominate the live streaming industry. YouTube, from its 12 hour live show, received nearly 8 million views from E3. Although YouTube has over 100 million active monthly users, still Twitch has managed to take the lead.
Twitch sold digital goodies via Humble Bundle and raised almost $390,000 for charity and it had 840,000 peak concurrent viewers. For details and other stats, check out the Infographic below and do not forget to tell us your views on this story.
