Yep, it has really happened for real this time. Because back in May i wrote a little piece called “Microsoft wanted to buy the streaming service Twitch TV“. Well, basically i wrote about the fact that MS once tried to buy Twitch TV (others tried as wel. Valve for example).
And that there were rumours on the street that Google had offered the Twitch owners 1 billion dollars for Twitch TV. Well, now it’s officially confirmed. So that means that Google now owns Twitch TV. Great news huh? I mean, doesn’t all this get you all existed and pumped up?
Because you know more than well that Google will intruduce a content ID system for Twitch as well (at one point or another). And don´t we just all LOVE the content ID system? *sarcasm* So R.I.P Twitch TV? Time will tell.
But what´s your thought about Google buying Twitch TV?
