  1. tl;dr - 12 month subscriptions are only offered to GIFTED subs and not manual (re)subscriptions. Please add an option to (re)subscribe ourselves for up to 12 months.

    Currently, Twitch offers the following subscription durations when subscribing to a channel: 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months. However, if you attempt to gift a channel you are offered a different set of durations: 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months.

    Is there a specific reason as to why the inconsistency exists between gifting a sub and subbing yourself? It would be great to have parity between the two methods…

  2. ISSUE: When someone has gifted a sub to your Twitch account. You are unable to Upgrade sub to Tier 1, 2 or 3 by default.

    You MUST go to Subscriptions page -> Disable Current Sub(Which deletes full time left on that gift) -> Resubscribe -> [Mandatory Tier 1 Sub] from that prompt. Then you are able to complete the action of Re-subbing at Tier 2, or 3 from the default Viewing page.

    Solution: Cumulative time on Gift sub, with immediate upgrade to Tier 1/2/3 (End-user choice).

    Workaround: Default "Disable" triggered from the Stream chat view, allowing "Upgrade Subscription" button to…

  4. I strongly believe that, when a viewer subscribes at Tier 2/3, the streamer should be taking the lion's share of that extra revenue rather than an even split. I think that should persist regardless of Plus Program eligibility. Ideally, Twitch would take the same cut as a Tier 1 sub, and the streamer would get all the extra revenue. But since I know that would never happen, I think a standard 70/30 split on those higher tier subs would be a fair compromise. That way Twitch would still generate extra revenue from those subs, but all streamers would then be…

  5. I am not sure if this is a safety issue but there are many people gifting subs to people that have never looked at their channel before. Would be nice if there was a setting that could be turned on and off to allow for this to happen as apposed to being spammed by gifted subscriptions from channels you've never visited before.

  6. Hey! I was wondering if Twitch was ever maybe gonna have student pricing anytime in the future. I feel like it might entice viewers who are currently in college to subscribe to Twitch Turbo!

  7. Give people an option to reject a gifted sub - whenever I take part in a Twitch-raid I drop a follow to the target as a courtesy gesture... unfortunately this turns me into a potential recipient of an unwanted gift , which would be better suited for someone who actually watches target's content.

  8. Turkish sub price was 9.90 TL. Yesterday it became 43.90 TL.

    That is a really big hike. The raise needs to be reconsidered. Otherwise it will inevitably lead to loss of subscribers and viewers for streamers in future. That is not too difficult to foresee.

  9. Allow creators the ability to prevent people from gifting subs anonymously (have it be a feature they can turn off and on). People will use anonymous gifted subs as a way to harass streamers (gifting subs to disparaging or downright harmful usernames). These usernames shouldn't be allowed on twitch as they contain violent language and hate speech to begin with.

  10. instead of increasing the price of tier 1 subs why not as a company that's grown tremendously and makes ten's of millions every year, why not do whats right and just take less from a tier 1 sub and give more to the streamers that actually do all the work and bring in the money. I have people already that say they cant afford to pay for a tier 1 now they will never get one thank you from a small streamer.

  11. One thing that always confused me as an affiliate is that you can change your emote prefix with a username change but it is impossible to change your product ID for your channel which is what your viewers are directed to when they purchase a subscription for you channel. My username has been DataXemnas for 3.5 years but viewers get directed to twitch.tv/products/talhajam when they want to purchase a subscription for my channel. I've contacted support about this before and they say it is absolutely impossible to change it. I find this hard to believe and that this is a…

  12. The price hike has been going on for years and nothing ground breaking has been implemented on your part, so I cannot in all good faith sit back and take yet another bump to subscription pricing. I personally have had a gutfull of eating the price hikes over and over. And I refuse to go to the ridiculously aggressive ad campaign Twitch appears to be employing in non subbed streams. So looks like I'm voting with my wallet and getting a gym membership, or re-doubling my book and record collections, certainly won't be a kindle reader.... Either way, Amazon or…

  13. The upcoming pricing changes in Canada are ridiculous and the justifications given are non-sensical. The current CAD 6.99 price is ALREADY more than 5 USD not to mention the taxes we have to pay on it already, CAD7.99 is too steep of an increase. Many other countries with weaker economies are getting sub price reductions, either in USD or local currency.
    The justification for the change is "This year we are updating prices in several countries to help streamer revenue keep pace with rising costs and reflect local currency fluctuations." If they want to help streamers in North America, they…

  14. Please update the German article on how to give a prime sub. It is wrong and not accurate any more. It confused me and was of no help at all. I spend an hours searching for the little box to tick. Until the friendly amazon Live Chat support was able to help.

  16. Would like the idea to host PPV events on stream.

    This is a spin off of subscriber only streams, but let the user set the price of the PPV stream, whether its a special anniversary stream or a live event.

    Pros: adds another line of revenue for streamers
    Adds a different experience for creators and chat
    Easily scalable
    Scenarios: sub anniversary stream, concert, album launch, travel stream, birthday stream, digital event, podcast/video podcast, special guests appearance,

  17. It would be AWESOME to be able to extend the subscription of a current subscriber in addition to gifting a subscription to a non-subscriber. Sometimes you just need to do something nice for a fellow chatter, but options are limited if they are already subbed! Thank you!

  19. Twitch's process for purchasing 100 gift subs lacked any confirmation or opportunity to cancel. This led to an accidental $499 purchase by a young user, which Twitch is refusing to refund.

    Purchases over a certain threshold (maybe $50?) should require additional confirmation steps to prevent accidental, irrevocable, unwanted purchases by minors.

  20. Please bring the option to subscribe with Prime back to the front panel when clicking the option to subscribe or re-subscribe. Moving it under the "Elevate your Subscription" option requires unnecessary extra clicks and can also cause confusion. Some may think the option is not available due to country restrictions or they may think they don't have a Prime sub to use.
