Twitch Is Expanding Its Partner Program, Know more – In a recent announcement, Twitch revealed a major expansion of its Partner Program, ushering in new possibilities for both Partners and Affiliates.

Affiliates, slated to be eligible for the program from February 1, will need to accumulate 300 Plus points to access the 70/30 net revenue share level on paid and gift subscriptions. This threshold reflects a reduction from the previous 350 Plus points set last summer when the program was initially launched. Alternatively, Affiliates can qualify for the 60/40 net revenue share level by maintaining 100 Plus points consistently for three consecutive months.
🚨 NEW UPDATE: Partner Plus is expanding. Starting May 1, Partners AND Affiliates can earn higher revenue share for subs. Qualification starts February 1. Check out the blog for more info:

Drawing parallels with Warner Bros. Discovery’s rebranding of HBO Max to Max, Twitch is set to rename its program to simply the Plus Program, effective from May.
One significant change is the removal of the $100k cap on the 70/30 net revenue share level for Affiliates in the Partner Plus Program. This adjustment comes in response to streamers’ concerns about earnings restrictions, which previously caused a shift from the 70% rate to the standard 50% after reaching the $100k annual mark, contingent upon meeting specified criteria.
For many streamers embarking on their Twitch journey, attaining Affiliate status has proven challenging. However, the integration of Affiliates into the Partner Plus Program promises to level the playing field, offering them an avenue to earn on par with or even surpass their Partner counterparts.
