Say what? Wasn’t that for gamers streaming their gameplay? Well, yes, until now. Twitch (owned by Amazon btw) is programming more live-streaming content that falls outside its wheelhouse of video-game broadcasts, showing glimmers of developing internet-based equivalents of linear cable TV networks. First their pilots got launched
, now they will follow Sara Erlandson, a Wisconsin bar owner and Twitch streamer
whose title of choice is arcade hunting game “Big Buck,” as she travels from her hometown of Beldenville, Wisc., to the game’s world championship in Austin, Texas.
So.. nothing like Netflix but close. A fine mix between Youtube (reality-story-telling-TV) and Full seasonal series build upon data. Seems like Amazon will try-out the crowd-sourced way using actors from their community for a short film. Sure they’ll be using data. It’s Amazon FFS. Interesting space to watch in the future.
Note: buy Amazon stock (yes, even now at +€850)
