Making Money on Twitch Will Soon Get Much Easier

Making Money on Twitch Will Soon Get Much Easier

What's notable for Affiliates is the fact that Twitch provides the streamer with a cut of the revenue it receives from Bits - equal to 1 cent per Bit used. Asking for donations without the audience to back you is a lot less likely to earn you cash, but the parameters for getting into the Twitch Affiliate program are just right for those who look to eventually make a career out of this. This perhaps blurs the line a bit between the larger and smaller communities on Twitch's service, but it also gives more creators the ability to grow their channels.

Similar to YouTube's Partner Program, Twitch's new tier is meant to be available to any streamer who meets a baseline criteria involving 500 minutes streamed in the last 30 days, at least three concurrent viewers, and at least 50 followers.

The Twitch Partners program will remain "hand-managed", according to Evans, with staff support and features designed for serving larger communities. Expected to allow tens of thousands of creators that now aren't partnered to earn some cash, Affiliates will receive money through cheering Bits at launch.

The company isn't detailing the specifics of those requirements, but when pressed for details, a Twitch rep put it like this: "the bar is very low and essentially requires just streaming on a regular basis and a very small number of viewers".

Mitchell Trubisky: Brugler: Don't count Bears out for early QB
If the Bills trade up for a QB, that would be a pretty strong message to Taylor that they do not have total confidence in him. Given that Floyd looks be on his way to evolving into a franchise pass rusher for Chicago, I'd say that initiative paid off.

Cheering will be the only monetization method available to Affiliates at launch, but in the coming months they'll be given access to subscriptions, game commerce, and advertising.

To date, only the roughly 17,000 Twitch Partners - the most popular video-game broadcasters on the site - have been able to monetize their channels.

Social video platform Twitch today affirmed its continued commitment to being the best place for content creators by introducing its new Affiliate Program. Their payout timeframe remains 45 days compared to the 60 days in the affiliate program.

Last year, when Twitch had around two million active streamers and 100 million unique monthly users, Piper Jaffrey's Gene Munster predicted Twitch could be worth $20 billion, generating $1 billion in revenue, by the year 2020.
