Caffeine is live streaming platform for gaming, sports, and other entertainment content.[1]

Caffeine secured a $100 million investment in September 2018 from 21st Century Fox with chairman Lachlan Murdoch joining Caffeine's board, as well as the creation of a newly formed joint venture called Caffeine Studios. As of 2019, Caffeine had raised $146 million from investors in 3 rounds led by 21st Century Fox, Andreessen Horowitz, and Greylock Partners.[2]

Both Caffeine and Twitch hosted pre-game events for Super Bowl 2020. Notable content creators who have used the platform include JuJu Smith-Schuster and Offset.[3]
