Twitch has announced an expansion to its European operations, starting with an infrastructure upgrade in Paris, France.


The firm said the upgrade will improve users’ streaming experience in the region.

“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,” said Stuart Saw, regional director, EMEA, Twitch.

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

VP of marketing Matthew DiPietro said Twitch is working to scale its infrastructure in order to “keep pace with the growth of the community.”
