How to stream movies from Twitch

Twitch is a streaming video platform owned by Amazon, the North American tech giant, creator of Alexa and manager of many other online services including Prime Video. It is aimed at the community of gamers, who are given the possibility of broadcasting their games, providing an interactive chat system and a live camera to show their reactions to the exposed content.

However, Twitch through the desktop browser, also allows you to broadcast movies and episodes of series from the Amazon Prime Video catalog, so that in this way friends or members of a community can watch the same content simultaneously and make comments using the chat service. The only requirement to enjoy this Twitch group video feature is that both the content creator and the viewers are Amazon Prime Video subscribers. Here’s how to start a group Twitch video session.
