Twitch has released an infographic that details the amount of engagement the streaming-video service had with its audience.

Twitch had over 21 million unique viewers watching various content and 840,000 peak concurrent viewers, which is up from 2014’s 12 million unique viewers and 400,000 peak concurrent viewers.  Twitch delivered a total of 41 hours of live E3 content, which included eight press conferences and 85 gaming segments consisting of 75 upcoming titles and content and 11 exclusive reveals.

This year’s E3 marked the debut of co-streaming, which allowed for official broadcasts in German, French, and Dutch. This service did very well for Twitch as 1,801 unique channels participated and made up 35% of its total E3 viewership.

The Humble Bundle E3 Digital Ticket also sold well as over $390,000 was raised for charity thanks to over 174,000 bundles being sold.

It's impressive to see Twitch receive this kind of growth from it's 2014 numbers, and with its upcoming TwitchCon, we have a feeling its viewership during E3 will only get better in 2016.

      Is 840k concurrent users a lot? Clearly it's over double last year, but it still doesn't seem like that many.

        That's a good number when you consider how many other avenues there are to watch E3 content. YouTube, Spike, etc. Having nearly 1 million users tuning in to something at the same time, especially something like E3, is pretty good.

        Yeah, but it's not really a meaningful metric.

        a lot of TV shows don't even get 500k viewers per hour. I think twitch did ok, and it is a much higher spending demographic than most tv and a much narrower demographic. Also, the actual show was basically the advertisement.

      I watched them all on youtube as I am sure many did so the numbers all up must be pretty big.
