NBA G League coming to Twitch with interactive content

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through and he's also on Twitter.

Up to six matches per week, starting Friday.

The NBA G League will be streamed live on Twitch, starting this week, organizers announced yesterday.

Fans will be able to watch up to six G League games per week on the G League Twitch channel, and the NBA has some neat innovations planned to make the experience more interesting.

For a start, GoldGlove and other Twitch personalities will co-stream the matches, meaning they will show the action and provide their own commentary.

G League has also worked with Twitch to develop an overlay for the matches that will allow viewers to click on a team's name or logo to see player, team, game and season stats.

Logged in viewers will also earn loyalty points for passive and active actions and interactions with the stream, with achievements, leaderboards and ultimately prizes for participation.

It all starts tomorrow, December 15, so if you're interested in the NBA's official minor league, you should check out the full schedule to see who's playing. After streaming, matches will be available to catch up on demand.
