It seems the concept of broadcasting your game to the world wide web is not slowing down, with one of the bigger streaming websites - Twitch.tv - announcing some quite impressive numbers to back up the claim.

According to the company, the website has hit the recent milestone of over a million monthly active broadcasters, and an average of 13 million minutes watched per month. Now that is a lot of time spent watching people play games.

Currently Twitch broadcasting is seeing large success in the recent months thanks to the launch of the PlayStation 4, with previous numbers hitting 1.7 million PS4 Twitch broadcasts for a total of 55 million minutes of gameplay broadcast. The streaming website will most likely see a nice bump when the Xbox One also gains streaming capabilities, though that is still a little way off.

To help cement the popularity of the video-game specific channel of the Justin.tv website/broadcaster, Twitch will from now on replace Justin.tv as the company's overall corporate name.

"As Twitch has continued to grow as the leader of the video game streaming space, it has eclipsed our previous initiatives," said Emmett Shear, Twitch CEO and founder. "Given our total focus on serving the gaming community, it makes sense to reposition it as our primary brand. Seven years ago, Justin.tv pioneered live video on the Web, and while I remain proud of all the work we did under that name, I'm even more excited about our new future as Twitch."
