Google in talks to buy streaming-video site Twitch: Report

Mike Stone     May 19, 2014

Google Inc is said to be in talks to acquire video-streaming service Twitch.

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal on Sunday, the size of the deal could not be learned and discussions between the parties were at an early stage.

In addition, the company was said to be looking at raising additional funding instead of selling itself.

In September, Twitch raised $20 million in funding from Thrive Capital, WestSummit Capital and Take-Two Interactive Software Inc, among other parties.

Officials at Google and Twitch declined to comment on the matter.
