Twitch's new subscription model will let fans pay streamers significantly more money

Twitch's new subscription model will let fans pay streamers significantly more money

Now, it seems that Twitch may be rolling out new subscriber tiers too, with $9.99 and $24.99 options, according to a leaked email. Partners, meanwhile, can unlock emotes and hit milestones faster - a $10 subscription is treated like two subscribers, while $25 is worth six.

Twitch recently announced plans to introduce two new subscription tiers - on top of the existing $4.99 tier - that'll let partners offer additional perks to their most loyal subscribers (and of course, generate additional income).

High-skills visa applications drop ahead of Trump move to limit program
The official said the lottery system that selects workers under the H-1B programme could be an evident target of reforms. It directs federal agencies to propose reforms to the H-1B program that prevents the displacement of American workers.

This new tiered subscription model brings Twitch closer in line with Patreon, which allows supporters of creators to pay them a monthly amount of their choosing in exchange for exclusive content. Later on this year, any user will be able to purchase a channel subscription and gift it to another non-subbed user. This will add several new tiers to the current subscription system.

Partners that are approved with the program will be able to reward "super fans" with a number of exclusive options for their support, including new exclusive emotes and other options that will be available soon. For those out of the know, Twitch channels get a certain amount of chat emotes based on the number of paying subscribers they have. For starters, channels can not assign custom emotes quickly if their sub count is low, and will instead have to wait a bit.

Corbyn kicks off United Kingdom election campaign, vowing to overturn 'rigged system'
A spokesman for Mr Corbyn said Mr Coyle was reported for "consistently abusing" party staff members. Instead, Labour wants a "good process by which we continue to trade with Europe".

Twitch isn't going into tremendous detail at this stage, but it notes that streamers can provide special emotes to higher-tier subscribers. Perks include the ability to send a custom message to the community upon first subscribing, gaining access to additional emotes (if provided by a partner) and the option to participate in "subscriber roles" within the Twitch App (again, if offered by a particular partner).

For the unfamiliar, a Twitch subscriber does not see ads site-wide.
