(South) African Twitch Ingest Server
It would be great if you guys could set an African, or South African, server up at some point in the not-too-distant future. I live in South Africa and have a really hard time streaming to any of the EU, let alone the NA or Asian ones. Currently YouTube has streaming servers here but it just isn't the same streaming to YouTube Gaming. The Twitch community is what makes it what it is and not being able to run a stable stream from here in South Africa turns so many would-be streamers away from potential bright futures on Twitch.tv. We have a large community of gamers ready and waiting.
Please consider setting a server up for us down here or wherever else you can that's not too far. South Africa and the other countries nearby deserve a chance too! :D
Yes, please add African or South African servers. How are there multiple servers on every other continent, but not a single one on the African continent? Please, we beg you, add servers here.
Yes please add, its sad that this option is not yet here!
I would love this to happen, would enable me to stream again, currently the delay from South-Africa to Europe or UK servers are really killing streaming for us. But with only 71 upvotes, I don't see this happening, EVER
Please do consider it. Streaming using EU servers ain't easy at all for us. A lot of us really want to stream in this country
Please consider doing this twitch. Here are a lot of people that would like to stream on twitch in South Africa. But because there are no local Twitch servers it is very hard to do
I shared this again, share it with viewers when you get a chance too guys!
Has this thread lost momentum?
PLEASE!!!!! :D :D You cannot say there is insufficient funds to do this. Besides, the value for money here compared to the majority of international currencies, would render the project cheap an completely worth it, due to the number of potential gamer's here in South Africa. Good idea, great investment. If not, why not? LETS GO! :D xD

Please! There is a ground swell of prominent creators that were exclusively Twitch that are now moving over to YouTube because they have better ingest performance. Please Twitch!
It would be tremendously helpful!
