Twitch is in the midst of a marathon featuring every episode of Bob Ross’ Joy of Painting. You can watch the marathon from the free Twitch channel on your Roku.
Twitch made this announcement today as well as an announcement about their Creative Community on their official blog:
Today, we’re happy to announce our official support for the Twitch Creative community. There are a few things that make the Creative category unlike anything else on Twitch, so we, along with our launch partner Adobe, are excited to see what you dream up.
First, starting today, you’ll see an entirely new landing page for the Creative category. This includes a dedicated Featured Video carousel meant to highlight interesting creative broadcasts for the community.
Second, you may have noticed a unique tagging system on the Creative category that quietly launched a couple of months ago. This is intended to help broadcasters identify the activity they’re engaged in: things like #drawing, #animation, #watercolor, or #robotics. This is unlike anything else on Twitch and we’re excited to see what the community does with it.
Third, we’ve updated our Rules Of Conduct to reflect our official embrace of the Creative community. In short, we encourage you to broadcast your creative process on Twitch, be that visual art, woodworking, costume creation, prop building, music composition, or any other process in which you entertain and connect around a creative activity. We understand that this is vague. We expect to learn much about what is, and is not, appropriate for Twitch as the community grows. See the updated Rules of Conduct for details and our FAQ for further specifics.
And finally, thanks to our friends at Janson Media and BobRoss Inc., we’ll broadcast every episode of the original Bob Ross show, The Joy of Painting, in an epic marathon starting today at 2PM PST on http://www.twitch.tv/bobross. That’s 403 episodes of Bob Ross that will play over the course of 8.5 days. Just for fun, we’re releasing a special Bob Ross Kappa emote too (KappaRoss).
So, go forward, unleash your inner Bob Ross, and get creative.
