I am not familiar with the differences between the two services. Why is Own3d better than Twitch?

Dont know for the ret of mortals but for me the main difference is stability. Twitch is so volatile and takes ages to refresh while own3d runs overall more smoothly.

Twitch has random lag spikes, random adverts, and occasionally will black screen and the sound will be fine.

owned is superior.

At a guess twitch.tv have sponsored TSM, thats why dignitas only stream on twitch

Actually try watching we all have a free 720+p (unlike the 240p having on big events we get by default from them), they made a good deal


And why - revenue

Own3d usually has a better quality service and they are a nicer company, they also use an outside chat system I think. Twitch has a wider variety of qualities and their own chat system. That is all I know.

Because Twitch.tv pay them more.

Own3d isn't better, but Twitch.tv tend to lag for no reason for many user, especially in Europe.

Come on, why do people always have to ask the same question over and over.
They switched because of Own3d's payment speed.
