Square Enix Has Disabled Streaming For Left Alive In Japan

According to reports coming out of Japan, […] the developers have cut off all ability to stream the game directly from the PS4. According to a number of streamers, the reasons it’s been done is because reviews of the game have been low ever since the game was released in the country, and rather than showing off what the game looks like and plays like before it gets released in the West, [Square Enix] decided simply to cut off the YouTube option. – Gavin Sheehan, Bleeding Cool » https://ift.tt/2SFcUCX

Twitch locks down rights to manage Team Liquid sponsorships

Under this agreement, Twitch is the official manager of all Team Liquid sales. This means the Amazon subsidiary can take Team Liquid to brands and make sponsorship deals for its specific content. That’s different than Twitch’s more generic deals for pre-roll ads. This is the first time Twitch has made a direct management deal like this. – Jeff Grubb, VentureBeat » https://ift.tt/2ICx54S

Sports audiences increasingly turning to digital

Each of the four top sports leagues offers a direct-to-consumer (D2C) streaming plan in the US, ranging from standalone services such as MLB.TV to NFL’s Sunday Ticket, which is tethered to DirecTV satellite customers and, as its name implies, limited to Sunday games. The pricing varies from league to league and depends on whether users pay monthly or seasonally. But, generally, users who buy entire seasons will shell out at least $250 per year. – Michelle Clancy, Rapid TV News » http://bit.ly/2G3WYHU

Report: Amazon to double down on gaming with a new streaming service

When Amazon acquired Twitch in 2014, many wondered if that would lead to it launching a bigger gaming service. That possibility was bolstered when Amazon acquired U.K. cloud gaming backend specialist GameSparks (in 2017 as we first reported, although only confirmed by Amazon in 2018). GameSparks’ technology has already been deployed in Amazon’s AWS service — which has a dedicated business targeting games publishers, providing everything they need, from gaming technologies to server space, analytics, backend services and more. – Ingrid Lunden, TechCrunch » https://tcrn.ch/2D4pxTz
