Earlier this year in March, video streaming platform Twitch decided to stream the English Premier League football matches. This was due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus which continues to disrupt the natural order of things to date. Today the Amazon-subsidiary relaunched this initiative in the form of a designated sports channel.
The sports channel is now live on Twitch and users can go through the guide to find sporting channels featuring professional athletes, football clubs and basketball leagues. Additionally, a standalone Sports category has been introduced in the Browse section on the live-streaming website. This will help users to better find, watch, and follow sporting content on the platform.
A virtual showcase planned for today has already kicked off and is currently airing. It will further detail the new sports channel and designated category. Several popular sporting figures, clubs and leagues such as Jimmy Conrad, the NBA, Arsenal, House of Highlights and the UFC are scheduled to appear on the live-stream.
Those who are interested in learning more can watch the ongoing live-stream celebrating the launch of Twitch Sports on the relaunched channel at /twitchsports. Users may also lookup related content in the brand new Sports section on Twitch.
