NBA G League Expands Twitch Connection
By Taruka Srivastav | February 8, 2019
The NBA G League has expanded its partnership with the esports livestream platform Twitch.
All streamers on Twitch will now be able to take up the co-streaming option for every game in the G League (the NBA’s minor league organisation) on the platform across Fridays and Saturdays.
Twitch is also adding a further dedicated commentary-free broadcast for all users to provide their followers with an alternative take on G League games via their own channel with greater interaction.
There will also be a Twitch MVP of every match, to be chosen by fans, and they can view stats during games and earn points for tuning in.
The G League (the G stands for main sponsor Gatorade) made its initial streaming deal with Twitch at the end of 2017.
The league consists of 27 teams, all of which are either affiliated or owned by an NBA team.
