Twitch vs YouTube in the battle for game streaming exclusivity

logo: Twitch

This isn’t entirely new, and won’t affect many beyond those players who have signed a contract to monetize their livestreams. Twitch already had a clause preventing partners from using rival services (such as hitbox or standard YouTube) for gaming broadcasts, but doesn’t prohibit the uploading of recorded clips to “static” video sites. – Matt Kamen, WIRED UK

Twitch Alternatives: Testing Out The Streaming Competition

Hitbox is where quite a few of the Twitch speedrunners have migrated to. It’s a game-focused channel and looks to be set up for those who wish to earning money while they stream (the option to drop a bunch of adverts into your broadcast is front and center,) but seems perfectly fine for casual play too. […] Gaming Live TV (as the name suggests) is also a game-centric site. It’s currently labelling itself as an alpha release, but is nonetheless taking open registration sign-ups. […] Ustream is a general streaming platform, so you’ll get everything on there from sports to 24/7 adorable kitten cams. – Peter Parrish,IncGamers
