Twitch announced two new subscription options to support streamers. Joining the $4.99 subscription, partnered streamers will soon be able to offer subscriptions at $9.99 and $24.99. People who subscribe at these higher levels will have access to special emotes, can help streamers unlock new emotes faster, on top of other bonuses offered by a streamer.
$24.99, as in $24.99 a month? I occasionally watch Twitch, basically whenever the GDQ streams are running. And this is a substrction to a single person, right? That’s about $300 a year to watch someone play video games. That’s comparable to having access to at least two or three streaming services a month. Who is that invested in a single streamer that they’d find that a positive cost/benefit transaction?
