TechCrunch.com covered the “E-sports streaming startup Twitch.TV this morning.
The site according to TechCrunch “has already seen massive growth in its audience since launching to the public just about two years ago and gets “more than 35 million unique viewers a month, up from 20 million last September.”
In addition to its 35 million unique viewers, the startup also has more than 600,000 unique broadcasters per month.
There are more than 4,000 members of the company’s partner program, and viewers tune in for about 1.5 hours of video per day.
Last fall, Twitch raised $15 million in Series B funding led by Bessemer Venture Partners to go after the e-sports market.
It seems like Twitch.TV should have spent some of that money to buy Twitch.com
Twitch.com is owned by a Peter Kay of New York and the domain has a pretty interesting message in the about section:
This site and its proprietor are enmeshed in a double-helix of semantic ambiguity. Likely you are looking for Twitch.tv to watch video game tournaments or seeking info on Peter Kay, who is a big-deal British comedian. Otherwise, you’ll want to grab a copy of my game physics based musical instrument app, K235.”
Meantime Twitch.com which is a very basic Word Press site, VERY BASIC and has a Google Page Rank of 3 and has an Alexa rank of 288,000 and a Compete rank of 39,000, meaning its getting a good amount of traffic and I’m sure 99% of its is for the .TV site and not for the British comedian.
