First live channel v channel quiz show launches on Twitch
Thousands of Twitch viewers tuned in to see streamers bateson87 and Pieface23 go head to head in a 1.5-hour live quiz show sponsored by Amazon Prime Video. The unique cutting-edge quiz format developed by tech start-up Codices saw the streamers, aided by their audiences, answer a series of football-based questions.
In the first of three live channel v channel football quizzes, the streamers and their audiences were put through their paces with a series of questions specifically written to promote Amazon Prime Video’s sponsorship of the English Premier League games. In a close contest bateson87 emerged the winner with a score of 11 to Pieface23's 8.
Battle will recommence when the streamers meet for round two on Tuesday 10th December at 15:00 (GMT) with the final scheduled for Tuesday 17th December at 15:00 (GMT). To take part visit www.twitch.tv/bateson87 or www.twitch.tv/pieface23.
Billed as a world first, it is undoubtedly a new format for streamers and was well received. Speaking after the first show bateson87 said,“I enjoyed it, that’s one of the best things I’ve done on Twitch”. And Pieface23 complimented the tech,“I thought that was really fun, it’s very smooth as well”.
