In an email to Twitch Partners that has leaked, Twitch looks set to introduce two new subscription tiers, which would give Twitch viewers the option to subscribe to their streamers in three ways.
Currently, Twitch viewers can spend $5 a month to subscribe to their favourite streamers, but Twitch looks set to introduce a $9.99 and $24.99 a month option. This would allow Streamers to earn more of a stable income, as they’d be able to do if they used Patreon etc to gain more funds.
In addition to two new subscription tiers, there’s some other benefits that partners will get. These are mostly in relation to customer emotes and emote slots as well as new streaming options only for those who are subscribed at the $9.99 and $24.99 options.
