Amazon didn't shell out $970 million for nothing, so it should come as no surprise that Twitch has some incredible viewer numbers. The streaming gaming outfit, when pitted against cable networks, draws more viewers in peak times than the likes of HLN, CNN, E!, MSNBC, TruTV and even MTV.

Twitch's primetime viewers has hit 800,000 this year, but when we go by hours of content viewed per month, YouTube and Netflix blow Twitch away. When these numbers are looked at, Netflix is around eight times larger than Twitch, while YouTube is a massive 24 times larger, according to The New York Times.
