Twitch’s New Partner Program Will Finally Give Streamers A 70/30 Cut Of The Revenue Pie

Twitch has unveiled its new partner program, which for qualifying members, will offer them a more lucrative slice of the revenue pie. The new Partner Program benefit will offer a 70/30 revenue share to streamers, as opposed to the 50/50 model that has been in place for several years.

This new program will roll out from October 1, but it comes with a high requirement for streamers. Partners must maintain a sub count of at least 350 recurring paid subscriptions for three consecutive months to be automatically enrolled in the program for 12 months. The good news is that even if a partner dips below that threshold, they still remain in the program during that 12-month period. Twitch says that streamers who meet the qualification criteria in July, August, and September will be enrolled in the program and notified in October.

This shift in Twitch’s revenue model comes after some controversial changes to how streamers could monetize their channels were almost implemented. Twitch proposed new rules that would limit how much space logos could take up on a screen and if sponsorships could be permanently displayed on a screen.
