Viewers on Twitch watched over 9.36 billion hours of content last year
Viewpoints that were fortnite accounted for over 10%, with over one billion hours viewed.
The system saw an increase in viewership of over 25 percent in contrast to 2017, based on StreamElements (through VentureBeat), which translates into an extra 506 million hours observed.
YouTube Live was up 104 percent in contrast to 2017, and while the total hours saw were nowhere close Twitch’s numbers, the expansion represents an extra 414.5 million hours observed in 2018.
Total hours saw for the stage came in at 2.31 billion, 25 percent of Twitch’s remarkable numbers.
Fortnite persists since the match on Twitch, clocking up just one billion hours last season; 373 million longer hours than League of Legends, the second title on Twitch.
While Fortnite’s viewership is staggering, StreamElements notes that it’s declining, with Q4 2018’s hours viewed down 15% in the game’s peak in Q2 2018.
However, Epic’s battle royale title recently drew in 10 million concurrent players in that weekend’s in-game Marshmello concert, therefore Twitch characters aren’t necessarily the best measure of a game’s success.
