Twitch, the popular platform for streaming video games, has announced an increase in subscription prices in more than 30 countries, including the United States.

The goal is to boost revenue for streamers and ensure the sustainability of the streaming industry. The new pricing structure raises Tier 1 subscriptions from $4.99 to $5.99 per month, while Tier 2 and Tier 3 prices remain unchanged at $9.99 and $24.99, respectively.

This decision from Twitch mirrors similar adjustments made by other streaming services like Spotify, Netflix, and Peacock. According to the company, the price hike will support creators in building and expanding their communities worldwide. Streamers will continue to receive a 50% revenue share, dependent on their Plus program level.

Twitch has faced challenges in 2024, including layoffs, the closure of its safety advisory council, and its CEO acknowledging the company’s lack of profitability. This development prompts questions about the sustainability of streaming services and their pricing strategies.

In recent years, numerous streaming platforms have raised their prices, making it more difficult for consumers to justify cord-cutting. This trend seems to occur annually, with major players like Netflix, Disney Plus, and Apple TV Plus all raising prices in 2023.

The price increase has elicited mixed reactions from consumers, with some in favor and others threatening to cancel subscriptions. Streamers are also concerned about potential impacts on their revenue, as higher prices may deter viewers from subscribing.

Nevertheless, Twitch remains dedicated to supporting its streamers by introducing new features and tools to aid audience growth. Despite recent challenges such as layoffs and the closure of its safety advisory council, the company plans to continue investing in community and safety initiatives.
