    Yeah, what inferno said.

    As long as they don't change whatever they want, I don't give a shit who owns what.

    As long as there isn't Google+ on twitch.tv and no bullshit Vevo Copyright infrigement, hopefully this will be for the better since Twitch servers are very very buggy.

    Hopefully it makes the revenue better for people from ads better and not worse. I would hate to see some of my favorite streams disappear :c

    I don't like this idea because google has a tendency of sticking more ads in places.

    No, I'll just add a separate column for hitbox streams.

    I doubt a lot of people are actually going to go to it because of this, unless google really fucks up. I only moved to it because of 2 reasons:
    1. I've been wanting to try it for awhile. This got me the motive to get myself setup there.
    2. I like seeing a competition between two companies for streaming. It gives them a reason to make themselves better.

    do any "important" gamers/streamers even use hitbox? i never paid attention to it or even noticed it until now.

    http://www.hitbox.tv/
    Looking at the front page, you can tell that the top channels only have a view count ranging from 200 to 50 to 0. It's still a small site, and I kinda like that.

    Seems like you can get popular on hitbox much easily. I wonder what is the reason why people never really use hitbox as much as twitch.
