- 5 sie 2014
March 19, 2007- August 5, 2014 The Justin.tv website, mobile apps, and APIs are no longer in service. Information On Justin.tv http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justin.tv. Justin.tv was a website created by Justin Kan, Emmett Shear, Michael Seibel and Kyle Vogt in 2007 that allowed anyone to broadcast video online. Justin.tv user accounts were called "channels", like those on YouTube, and users were encouraged to broadcast a wide variety of user-generated live video content, called "broadcasts". The company was an Internet startup based in San Francisco, California, with seed funding from Paul Graham of seed capital firm Y Combinator and Series A funding with Alsop Louie Partners and Draper Associates. The original Justin.tv was a single channel featuring founder Justin Kan, who broadcast his life 24/7 and popularized the term lifecasting. In 2007, Justin Kan stopped broadcasting and Justin.tv relaunched into its later form as a network of thousands of various channels. Users were permitted to broadcast to an unlimited number of people for free, and watching broadcasts did not require user registration. Broadcasts that were considered to contain potentially offensive content were available only to registered users over the age of 18. Broadcasts containing defamation, pornography, copyright violations, or encouraging criminal conduct were prohibited by Justin.tv's terms of service. On February 10, 2014, Twitch.tv's and Justin.tv's parent company was rebranded as Twitch Interactive. On August 5th, 2014, Justin.tv was officially shut down so that the company could focus on Twitch. FAQ Why is Justin.tv being shut down? Justin.tv pioneered live video on the Internet and spawned one of the largest video platforms ever: Twitch. Justin.tv was officially renamed Twitch Interactive Inc. in February of 2014 and Twitch is now the focus of the company's resources. Unfortunately that means we need to shut down Justin.tv. We thank all of our broadcasters and viewers for 7 years of live video memories. What will happen to my account? Your account is now closed, and you will be unable to access any settings or content.
