Amazon Buys Video-game Streaming Site Twitch

Posted at 8:13AM Tuesday 26 Aug 2014

In a surprise move, Amazon has bought video-game streaming service Twitch for $970m (£585m).

Earlier in the year, Google's YouTube had been reported to be in late-stage acquisition talks for a similar amount.

Founded in 2011, Twitch - formerly known as Twitch.tv - allows users to watch other people play video games.
