Twitch is the favorite live streaming platform for gamers. The biggest streamers can make a financial living from their video streams. There are several ways in which creators of streaming content make money, the most common method is channel subscription, in which a person pays a certain fixed monthly amount to access the lives.
The reason you subscribe to a channel is to show a sign of support for the streamer you watch, so that they can continue in the production of content. Obviously the user will judge in advance whether it is worth paying to watch, but it is nevertheless an interesting way to access quality content
Most Twitch users subscribe to a channel more in the sense of supporting their favorite streamer, but they may also receive some benefits in return.
What are the advantages of becoming a Twitch channel subscriber?
EmojisThese are personalized channel emoji that a subscriber can use in any chat. Twitch Affiliates can only use one emoji, while Twitch Partners can have many more.
Subscriber badges: When writing something in a chat room, subscribers will have, next to their name, a special badge. There is a standard badge, but streamers can customize it if they wish.
Special alerts: These are alerts that appear to everyone following the stream when a subscriber re-subscribes, showing the user's name and how long they have been subscribing. Subscribers can send personalized messages to streamers.
Exclusive Chat RoomSome streamers choose to create extra chat rooms where only their subscribers participate. Useful for large channels where comments quickly disappear from the screen due to the large number of people commenting.
Exclusive Competitions: Certain streamers organize competitions for subscribers only, and may even have interesting prizes compared to what normal viewers receive.
Ad-free viewing: Some channels even allow their subscribers not to see advertisements.
How much does it cost to become a subscriber?
Initially, Twitch charged about $4.5 for monthly channel subscriptions, with half of that being retained and the rest transferred to the streamers. The company even made deals with some popular content creators, whereby these members could keep anywhere from 60% to 100% of the money paid by their subscribers.
In 2017, the streaming platform increased its subscription system. Currently there are 3 subscription tiers, LVL 1 pays US$4.99 (+/- €4.5), LVL 2 pays US$9.99 (+/- €9) and LVL 3 pays US$24 (about €22 depending on the exchange rate). The higher the level, the more advantages the subscriber will have. Payment can be made with the following options: monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually.
