Twitch, the live streaming service that connects gamers and viewers, is now available as a channel on Roku devices.

Roku owners can update their devices via the Channel Store, and if you don’t have a Roku, you can still watch along on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Chromecast and Amazon Fire TV, as per normal.
