Today, Twitch announced the launch of a brand-new game show coming to their weekly feed of live programming called Stream On. The show will debut in March 2018 and will feature streamers who have become partnered with the company, but need just a little extra boost to make their channel come alive. The details of what the game will actually be aren’t clear, as you can read the show’s description below. But the concept is to help up-and-coming streamers get a boost in their exposure through the social streaming service and expose them to people who may not have known they existed. If you’re a streamer and wish to participate, you can do so by filling out this form here.
Stream On contestants will face challenges designed to test important streamer skills, and be evaluated by a panel of Twitch judges. Viewers in Twitch chat will also play an important role in choosing who advances and who is eliminated at each stage of the friendly competition. The show will take place across multiple channels as contestants compete throughout each week from their home streaming setups, and the action will be punctuated by a weekly recap and elimination show from Twitch Studios. Ultimately, the contestant who best shows off the ability to entertain, lead a community, and be a pacesetter in the streaming space will emerge victorious, and be awarded a grand prize of $5,000 per month for a year—a total of $60,000—in order to help take their streaming career to the next level.
