    Now if google can make the twitch mobile app actually useful - ie allow me to search for previous casts and watch them, and NOT JUST ALLOW ONLY 3 GAMES YOU TELL ME I SHOULD WATCH (ugh), I could be reasonably happy about this.

    Sure, now you will be able to receive adverts mid stream, pop up boxes and "paid" reccommendations / promotions. All for FREE! wow.

    Personally I feel this is the end of Twitch.

    You can only watch live if the network offers a live stream. None of them do at this time. You can watch shows after they air on sites , ot you can buy a TV tuner for your PC.
