[UPDATE] Please refer to this post for a workaround. Thanks!
A couple weeks ago the Twitch.TV live streaming app was finally launched on the Xbox 360 after months and months of being teased about its release. Unfortunately for gamers not living in the US of A, the service wasn’t available to them. As of today however, without so much of a peep from either Twitch or Xbox, the app is now available outside of the US, or at least it is here in Canada.
The Twitch app allows Xbox Live gold members to watch up to 300 different streams that are playing live on Twitch.TV. While the 300 limit is nowhere near how many channels there actually are available to watch, it’s not a bad slice of the programming on there. If games like League of Legends, Star Craft 2, or DOTA are your thing, then you’ll find more channels than you can shake a stick at streaming those, while some more unpopular and obscure games may be a little trickier to find. The app also doesn’t support chatting with the casters or streaming from your console and is simply just a way to view Twitch.TV streams, but hey, at least it’s there.
