A statement released by Stuart Saw, Twitch’s Regional Director of Europe for Middle East and Africa, said the following:

“As the only live video platform catering solely to the entire video game ecosystem, it’s important that our community has a seamless broadcasting and spectating experience.

“With a new point of presence in Paris, it’s definitely going to improve the Twitch experience for our friends in France. Because streaming is an international phenomenon being driven by Twitch, we are also laser-focused on rolling out similar infrastructure expansions and upgrades in other popular broadcasting hubs.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, Twitch accounted for the fourth highest percentage of United States internet traffic in early February. Falling behind only Netflix, Google and Apple in the race for domination.
