  • v/o: we reach three-quarters of the males 18-49 demographic who spend a wide spectrum of time playing video games. But nearly half spend more than 20 hours a week. They watch live streams, chat with the community, watch video highlights and broadcast game play. The way they consume media has changed from the way they did so a year ago.
  • v/o: And not only are we #1 amongst the Gaming category in Average Daily Uniques. But, our engagement puts us even further up the ranks than Facebook!This proves that the way people are consuming Twitch’s content is more in line with the way they consume YouTube. Video consumption is a lot more engaging with more time spent than reading articles or connecting with friends via FB.
  • v/o: First, lets revisit why these guys are even on Twitch
