Twitch unveils Premium Subscriptions
Twitch has bolstered their subscription options with two new higher tier fees. The streaming service is set to off two new subscriptions; US$9.99 and US $24.99. These have be presented as an additional way “to support streamers you love”. The higher tier subscriptions will include exclusive benefits including emotes.
Twitch said, “As we build this program, our goal is to provide partnered streamers with a better way to earn a steady income and to give viewers more options to support streamers on Twitch.”
“This includes long-requested features like the ability for a user to gift a channel subscription to another non-subbed user, which will be coming to Twitch later this year. We’re already working on it, and expect to start testing this within the next few months.”
A beta period for the new subscriptions will launch soon with a full roll out in the coming weeks. Full article MCV UK.
