    Prima di enter the live of this tutorial and spiegarti how to open a Twitch channel, you might find it useful to know that every account created on Amazon's popular video streaming service is automatically associated with a channel.

    This means that if you signed up on Twitch to chat with other users and follow your favorite channels, you already have a channel that you can customize as you see fit and that you can use to stream as much content as you want. Furthermore, it will be useful to know that if you have completed the registration process by verifying your email address, you can also use it to create other accounts and, consequently, other Twitch channels.



    That said, if you already have an account, all you have to do to access your channel from your computer is to connect to the Twitch main page, click on the button Log in, at the top right, enter your data in the fields Username e Password and press the button again Log in, to login.
