We are very pleased to announce that Canada’s premiere fighting game tournament, Canada Cup 2011, will be presented LIVE, this weekend on TwitchTV. We’re working very closely with our friends to the North to make sure that everyone at home gets the best possible presentation of the action available at Canada Cup 2011. We’re also thrilled to announce that, moving forward, TwitchTV is the official home of Canada Cup.
In cooperation with Canada Cup, there will also be a premium stream available this weekend. For a flat fee of $8.95, premium viewers will be able to watch the Canada Cup stream in high-definition and without advertisements during the course of the event.
In addition to an HD and ad-free stream, premium subscribers will be automatically entered into a raffle for prize packs from Mad Catz, Canada Cup Gaming, and Hori, including fight sticks, apparel, and more!
Regular (free) viewers will still be able to watch the event at a resolution of 360p, including advertisements.
We are excited to work alongside Canada Cup and we hope you take the time to tune in and enjoy the stream this weekend. For a complete schedule of events, check out the Canada Cup website.
