(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
So much talent in South Africa not getting the spotlight, lets help them! <3
South African are the best streamers
I can vouch to that, as much as you could see influx of other countries making bigger circles and bigger impact and bringing new crowds to Twitch, this should be a good investment, Free to contact me for colocation space if needed.
please!! south african streamers are the best
come on guys make it happen...
Come on Twitch!! We need this! I Thank you ;-)
Africa is a power house. We make our livings online too, the very same profits that you take 50% of.
we need our own servers in this country it will make things better for us as south african streamers
South Africa deserves more. Africa as a continent deserves more. Please include us and allow us to show ourselves to the world.
South Africa streamers sould be treated the same just like the rest of the world
South African MUSIC Streamer here! This would be SO big for the community. There are A LOT of South African Streamers out there and having our own server would do SO much for us on and individual AND collective base!
If Brazil has an ingest server, surely South Africa can have a n ingest server?
Honestly would move to twitch over YouTube if there was a locale
We as South African Streamers need this!!!
An Ingest server in South Africa is really needed. It would help South African streamers, and depending how it is setup, the neighboring countries.
The delay to international ingest streaming is killing the bit-rates.
This would be amazing for all ZA streamers and their communities!!!
Shocked this isn’t already a thing with how big the SA streamer population is with its reliance on 3rd party relays
Early Christmas present to South African Streamers and their lovely communities? Twitch please?
If one of us throws our cats, can we get a server?
The South African Streaming community has really come a long way, with getting behind the idea of streaming as a business/career to be a norm. Every effort has been put in from our (South African Streamers) side to deliver quality content for viewers, for some that is every day. Not having a stable connection hinders the growth of South Africa to be on the map alongside so many other countries in the gaming/streaming scene. Yes, there are alternative platforms to broadcast to, but I believe it is the culture within Twitch where we have made a home for so many of our communities. There is a reason we choose Twitch, please see our value and choose to set up an African/South African Server. Please.
