Twitch Reaches Out To Non-Partners With Affiliate Program

Now non-partners can get their cut as well.

News by Mike Williams, .

Streaming platform Twitch announced today that it would be offering a new Affiliate Program, aimed non-partnered content creators. This acts as a tier between the Partner Program and the basic Twitch streaming account. If a streamer qualifies for the program, they'll be able to earn revenue on Twitch through certain tools.

"Twitch is built upon looking to our content creators with both large and small communities to learn how we can best serve their needs," said Ethan Evans, SVP of Commerce and Developer Success, Twitch. "With our upcoming Affiliate Program, we will be able to open up a means of support from the community to a whole new class of creators numbering in the tens of thousands."

The Affiliate Program will be launching worldwide this month. Folks can qualify for the program based on time spent streaming, viewership, and followers. Affliates will be able to monetize via the Cheering With Bits program at launch, with more tools coming later in the year.

    Twitch has really become out of control with the monetization recently. Every news piece I've seen about Twitch in the last 18 months has been because they're adding a new way to extract money from pockets. There's absolutely nothing more off-putting than watching a stream where 1/2 the screen is covered by names of big spenders and the streamer mentioning donations, subscribe, buy those emote things, etc. etc. etc. every 2 minutes.
