Twitch Allows Partners to Stream On Rival Platforms, with a Catch

twitch

Amazon’s live-streaming platform Twitch is now allowing twitch streamers to stream on rival platforms, in a move that has a lot of nuances and comes with a catch, according to an official announcement.

“Starting today, you are now allowed to create live content on other platforms. This means you have more flexibility to explore how to use different, off-platform features to further build your community and interact with streamers off Twitch.

“We still believe that Twitch is the best place for creators to build and engage with their community,” the announcement stated. “We also recognize that the digital landscape has changed since we first introduced the Partner Program and that many of you engage with your communities in many different places.”

But streamers need to mind the details, as their policy explicitly states that streaming on two platforms at once, for long periods of time is not allowed. Meaning, if you simply want to broadcast your entire stream on both Twitch and YouTube, for example, you’re going to run into trouble.

Twitch defines “short form mobile services”, such asTikTok and Instagram live, as examples of what is acceptable.
