TwitchTV has announced that it has launched a new iOS app to bring the full TwitchTV experience to the iPhone. It will allow users to view TwitchTV’s streaming content in HD, search for content, see a list of their favorite channels and chat with friends in-app.
“This has been one of the most frequently requested items since we launched,” said Emmett Shear, CEO of TwitchTV. “Our community is truly native to the mobile environment. They switch back and forth from Web to mobile and back again, not seeming to recognize boundaries. So it’s very important to bring them a TwitchTV experience that does the same.”
During mid October, TwitchTV had 4.2 million viewers who watched over 6.7 million minutes of video.
