Twitch, the leading streaming service, recently rolled out an announcement about their new subscription levels. Alongside the current $4.99 option, partnered content creators will have new $9.99 and $24.99 subscription levels that will allow viewers to offer additional levels of support.
“Subscriptions are a defining part of the Partnership program since it enables fans to show appreciation for their favorite creators, while adding to the native language of Twitch by introducing new emotes daily. These new subscription options will soon go live as an opt-in beta. In addition to providing the community with more options to support their favorite creators at higher levels, Partners will be able to reward their super fans with special perks, such as new exclusive emotes.”
Twitch is also working rolling out a sub-gifting feature. Later this year any user on Twitch will be able to purchase a channel subscription and gift it to another non-subbed user.
