Twitch wants non-partners to make money from gaming

Twitch can more safely provide money-making opportunities given its dominant focus around video games, while YouTube is a more general site that has to be mindful of content that might not be appropriate for mainstream brands, said Paul Verna, an analyst at EMarketer Inc. For most streamers, it is a long road to finally become an official partner with Twitch and get access to its many perks. "Twitch Affiliate" is this middle-ground, and, while it is invite-only, it is open to pretty much anyone who intends to stream on a regular basis. These are emoticons that users can buy and then post in chats for streamers, passing money onto them. Twitch pays $1 to Twitch Partner for every 100 Bits used, so $10 million of that revenue has gone to creators.

Do note that the platform already features a Twitch Partner program, but that only caters to the "world's most popular video game broadcasters, personalities, leagues, teams, and tournaments".

There is now no launch date for the Affiliate Program.

The Twitch Affiliate Program will widen the umbrella of support for those still working on growing their audience on Twitch, while also providing an incentive to entice more creators to utilize Twitch itself.

Partners, meanwhile, will have specific tools for managing their larger communities that won't be available to Affiliates.

There is a great tradition for this competition, it's the oldest competition in the world, and we want to respect this. He is helping me on and off the pitch", Conte said.

The Twitch Affiliate Program looks to bridge that gap by giving nearly every streamer the opportunity to earn off their content.

The affiliate program is promised to be launched soon, with Twitch stating, "In the coming months we will continue to invest in both our Affiliate and Partner programs to better support creators at all stages of their development".

A whole lot of Twitch streamers will stand to benefit from these changes.

In other Twitch news, the company is adding subscription tiers - $9.99 and a $24.99 subscription tiers.

Eventually we'll also see affiliates gain access to revenue sharing from game sales and Twitch ads. Twitch is launching the program shortly, it says, and it will start sending out invites to prospective members who meet the criteria over the course of the first several weeks of the launch.
