partner with Deutsche Telekom 'StreamOn' for Twitch zero-rating
From April 19th on, Deutsche Telekom will offer zero-rating in germany (much like 'Binge On' by T-Mobile US).
Twitch's parent company, Amazon, already is a partner (with Amazon Prime Video) from day 1. YouTube will also be a partner from day 1.
I enjoy watching twitch while on the train, but it eats LOTS of data - this would greatly help, as fast LTE is usually no problem. This will also get you parity with 'YT Gaming' in this regard - the twitch mobile app is much better than YT Gaming in general, but the zero-rated 1080p stream wins...
Update: Twitch is a Telekom StreamOn Partner
Would love to watch all the streams on the go... please partner!
I would like to see much more on Twitch, but the data volume in Germany is simply too expensive. Unfortunately, I often do not have the opportunity to access a Wi-Fi.
Thats would be nice
some additional information:
German mobile provider Deutsche Telekom includes a service called StreamOn with its mobile contracts.
If you have a contract that includes StreamOn you can stream from over 100 streaming services, like Spotify, YouTube, Netflix, Amazon prime video and many more without using your data allowance.
I can stream all of those services on the go without having to restrict myself in any way.
I'd love to be able to watch Twitch on the go as well without having to worry about using my precious 12GB!
When asked whether Twitch would become a partner anytime soon, Deutsche Telekom replied that Twitch would just need to apply and then surely be approved to join the service.
Here's the link to apply for a StreamOn partnership.
I truly hope you'll join soon, seeing that Amazon prime video is already included :)
Hopefully you have someone who speaks German, if not I can ask Deutsche Telekom to provide an English application for you.
Why haven't they done anything? I sent a mail to Twitch Support with the link where they can apply and even offered my help if they don't have anyone who speaks German!
Please Twitch, come on!
i wanna watch on the go, please partner up with telekom stream on
This would be nice
I agree my Netflix and Youtube consume increased a lot cause i travel a lot! 👍

The StreamOn service has now been live for a while . As i . e . Amazon Prime Video and YouTube are already partners I hope you do not miss the trend here !
I second this! I really enjoy StreamOn and know a lot of friends who think the same way and would also like data-free twitch streams!
