Twitch grows by 100k, PS4 accounts for 10% of content

Console streaming is taking off. Sony certainly made it easy enough with the PS4, despite quality concerns from people worried about that sort of thing.

Twitch has announced a broadcaster growth, "from around 600,000 in October to more than 700,000 in November." It continues, "In addition to more than 100K new broadcasters signing up since the launch of PlayStation 4, PS4 owners make up ten percent of all content on Twitch based on minutes broadcast."

Seems PS4 users are into the new feature, though it will be interesting to see if that percentage dips, holds, or grows after the novelty has worn off. Then again, everyone is looking for their 15 minutes, and PS4 ownership is only going to grow.
