Twitch Out Here Making Moves: Now You Can Buy Games To Support Streamers
Yep you read that right, Twitch will now let you buy games directly from their website…
According to Twitch, this is how the new feature will work:
People already use Twitch as a way to ‘demo’ games and get a feel for what they’re all about before committing to a purchase. Soon, when you watch a stream, you’ll see an option to purchase below the video on the channel page if the game or in-game content is available on Twitch.
When you buy, if the streamer is a partner who has opted into the program, he or she gets a 5% share of the revenue. So now you can help support your favorite partnered streamers just by getting a game on their channel. And, purchases come with a special digital Twitch Crate filled with surprises!
If you want to learn more, head over to their website here. This is a step in the right direction and it makes supporting your favorite streamers that much easier.
