Gone are the days of rushing to the bathroom during ad breaks and staying home on Thursday night to watch the next episode of your favorite show (or crying if you missed it).

Today – we stream. Not only that, but we stream exactly what we’re interested in.

If you’re a South Park fan you may recall the episode where Kyle’s little brother, Ike, would rather watch PewDiePie playing games on YouTube than actually play a game himself.

That was waaaaay back in 2014, and the phenomenon of streaming gamer channels has only grown and become more entrenched in our viewing habits, especially with the teens and younger viewers who have very specific viewing interests and expect to receive nothing short of exactly what they want to view, when they want to view it.

In the case Gamers, we’ve also progressed from watching YouTube Gamers to a platform specifically designed to watch Gamers stream their playtime – introducing Twitch.tv

In case you missed it – Twitch is the place where Gamers have created their online home, and fans are flocking here to watch their heros at play.
