Twitch’s content battle

The new feature comes amidst reports that non-gaming content is performing better than gaming content on Twitch, which was once a service synonymous with gaming streams. Twitch had started rolling out the Watch Parties to streamers in October 2019. This was similar to the Amazon Watch Parties feature rolled out to Prime members in June.

Geographical challenges

While the Twitch Watch Parties feature will certainly help a lot of people who want to enjoy the content, that won’t mean everyone. Remember that Amazon Prime Video’s library of content is country-specific. This means that if your Watch Party features people from different countries, not everybody will be able to access the content being streamed.

Reliance JioFiber to offer free Netflix, Amazon Prime Video

In other news, Reliance JioFiber customers will soon be offered complimentary services of streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video along with their subscriptions of JioFiber. These plans will start rolling out from today. The brand recently launched new broadband plans and prices started at as low as Rs 399.
