Some of you may have seen this news:
In January, 962,000 people was the average viewership on Twitch. Sometimes there was more, sometimes there was less — but in general, nearly a million people were watching Twitch at any given point.
That puts Twitch viewership on par with the likes of MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, and ESPN.
“For comparison, 2017 total day viewership for Fox News Channel and ESPN was ~1.5 million, MSNBC was 885,000, and CNN was 783,000,” Macquarie Capital analyst Ben Schachter points out in a recent note, “putting Twitch squarely among the most-watched US cable channels.”
What is Twitch? Basically, “People play games live on Twitch while other folks watch.”
In other words, for all of the interest in current events, for many people, there may be more interest in Kingdom Come: Deliverance or Fortnite or League of Legends.
