Twitch Adding 1080p/60fps Streaming Support

For streaming video content, the important part of your Internet connection is the upload bit rate. So much focus is put on download speeds, but in this case you’re uploading content. Twitch limited the bit rate for streams to 3.5 megabits, but that’s been unlocked so as to support anywhere from three to six megabits. If you want to stream at 1080p, then six megabits is really what you’ll need to achieve. – Matthew Humphries, PCMag
