Live streaming site Justin.tv is no more


4:00 PM on 08.05.2014



After seven years, Justin.tv has been shut down.

The live video site, mobile apps, and APIs are no longer in service as Twitch Interactive Inc.'s focus shifts entirely to its gaming-focused site, Twitch. Getting ready for that acquisition by Google.

Justin.tv users can no longer retrieve their video archives from the site and are being asked to transfer their accounts to Twitch, while broadcasters who don't plan plan to stream gaming-related content are being told to explore other options, like YouTube and Ustream. End of an era.

I remember visiting Justin.tv when it had just become an open network and not understanding the appeal of live broadcasts, and the same thing happened when Twitch first launched. Just gaming? Really? But it worked. Twitch sure has come a long way in such a short span of time.

Destructoid saves the world: XCOM hasn't killed any of us yet

Last time on Destructoid Saves the World, I made strained addiction analogies (not the Kanye song) and found a work-related reason to play XCOM. Now if only I can find a work-related reason to do nothing but play Puyo Pu...more
