Introducing BlueStacks TV

Hooray! Introducing our latest feature BlueStacks TV which is something gaming streamers and fans of mobile streaming will absolutely love… you can now stream mobile games to Twitch with one click and even watch curated streams from the BlueStacks App Player. There’s no complicated setup or extra devices. Simply sign in with your Twitch account, click “Go Live” and play!

“This was a natural combination,” said BlueStacks CEO, Rosen Sharma. “BlueStacks has mobile equivalents of the most popular games on the Twitch platform – mid-core RPG titles especially. The mobile world has hundreds of popular titles for each of these PC game types. It used to be hard to stream a mobile game. It involved multiple devices: a tablet, a webcam and wires. We’ve cut all of that out. From a PC it’s easy to stream. It’s why Twitch has become so popular so fast. BlueStacks users are already playing mobile games like Hearthstone, Castle Clash, Vainglory and others- we just built the bridge to their platform, and have brought their content to ours. This combines the power of two huge user bases.”

To commemorate the launch of BlueStacks TV, we’re hosting a 16-player tournament of top Hearthstone competitors using the mobile version of the game to stream live to Twitch. The tournament is single-elimination and the winner will receive $3,000 USD. The tournament begins on Twitch at 6AM Pacific Daylight Time April 7 on the BlueStacksInc channel and is sponsored by Glory4Gamers.
