Twitch Dumping Just Chatting Rerun Feature

twitch

Amazon’s popular streaming platform Twitch is reportedly scrapping a popular feature used within the Just Chatting category which allows twitch streamers to rebroadcast an old stream while they are offline.

The feature, called Reruns, was popular among Just Chatting streamers and has been a part of the platform for a long time. Essentially, it allowed streamers to pick an old live-stream VOD to rebroadcast, which allowed for them to grow their audience and collect viewers when they were offline (h/t Dexerto).

Many streamers may see this as a positive, despite it allowing channels to build their audience base, as the usage of reruns has been noticeable on the platform.

It is unclear exactly when Twitch will remove the feature, but it is rumored that it will take place within the next few weeks.

Twitch has a number of changes planned, per reports, and many of those reportedly will have a big impact on partnership contracts, and will also reduce revenue splits while adding more incentives for Twitch partners to run ads during their twitch streams, which would likely lead to more ads for viewers.
