Twitch is adding two new subscription tiers at $10, $25 – report

4.9
Twitch is reportedly rolling out two new subscription tiers very soon. The new tiers, at $10 and $25, will begin appearing on a limited number of channels, so long as the partnered creator opts into the beta.

The details come from an email Twitch sent to patterned streamers earlier this week (via NeoGAF). In the email, the Amazon-owned service detailed a number of benefits streamers will be offer to subscribers who choose one of the new tiers.

Some of these benefits include faster access to emotes, as part of a revamped subscriber requirements for emotes. Going forward, streamers will have 50 tiers of growth to go through instead of 14. Emotes unlock as the streamer’s community grows, and the new subscription packages are worth a lot more in that regard.

A $10 subscription is worth two subscriber counts, whereas a $25 one is worth six. For streamers, the number of unlocked emote slots will be available permanently, once a channel has reached a new tier.

By the same token, streamers will now be able to offer exclusive emotes for higher subscription tiers.

For the unfamiliar, a Twitch subscriber does not see ads site-wide. The effect of a Prime subscription is the same regardless of which streamer got you to subscribe.

When you subscribe through the button on your favourite streamer’s page, a portion of this subscription goes to the streamer, which in turn grants you exclusive emotes and so on.

I don't think I will pay for the upgrade.

that 25$ upgrade is worth it. glad to see twitch growing more.

DanielPosted:

Nice to see them improving the site, I don't use Twitch all that much anymore but this is a cool thing to add.

I always thought paying for emotes is just stupid, and they say "a faster way to emotes" like wtf it should just be automatically like that.

Eternity I hope the higher tiers count for multiple months of subscription as the article indicates. This would be good and would offer a slight discount to those who choose the bulk subscription route.

What I don't like is the option to exclusively offer emotes to those who pay for higher subscription tiers. A subscription should be a subscription regardless of what tier you choose.

They will for sure add such feature cause its common sense imo and the tiers are just for the rich or super dedicated.
