Google is considering to buy Twitch video service


Almost all IT media today are buzzing about the plans of Google’s YouTube division to buy Twitch for video streaming service focused on gaming. Sum that is discussed is more than a billion dollars. So far, neither side has commented on the rumors. It is clear why this would be a good investment for Google and YouTube – Twitch has more visitors than any major sports network, and the acquisition would expressly permit a greater presence in the gaming world. According to the latest information issued by the Wall Street Journal, talks are at an early stage. Twitch would eventually have to decide to raise funds rather than to sell. On the other hand, Google is expected battle with regulators law, which could be a problem related to the suppression of competition in the field of Internet video providers.
