It’s time to bid farewell to the original Twitch channel pages, currently accessed by adding /old to any channel URL. This is a move that we’ve alluded to for quite some time, and with the completion of the new layout across Twitch, along with the addition of profile pages, there’s never going to be a more optimal time to remove them from the site.
Hey, Twitch Broadcasters. We have a brief, but oft-requested feature that recently went live on the new Channel Page Beta. We’ve introduced dynamic title updates, and it’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like.
Twitch Broadcasters —
We have an update on our new channel page beta, just in time for the holidays. The channel page beta has been available for a little over a month now and the feedback we’ve received with each new addition and alteration continues to reshape and expand its development. Thank you to everyone who emailed, tweeted, and generally chatted us up about your feelings concerning this bold, new direction of Twitch. We greatly appreciate it and we hope you begin to see your words in action.
In our previous update, we explained how that very feedback is having direct influence over our current development, particularly in regard to customization and donation options. Today, we’re making good on our word, as well as openly welcoming the greater Twitch community to see these new channel pages for themselves.
Twitch broadcasters –
Here at Twitch, our goal is to be the best video platform and community for gamers. We know that Twitch is your home away from home and we are fully aware how important your channel pages are to you.
Last week, we launched the broadcaster-only beta period of our channel page redesign project. The goal of this beta period was not clearly communicated (we’re sorry). This closed beta is specifically designed to gather the type of feedback you’ve been providing for the past week. Thank you sincerely for all of your contributions. We are listening and we hear you!
Your feedback falls into three main categories, each of which we’re actively working on in the coming weeks. You can expect major enhancements in at least these three areas:
Twitch Broadcasters –
Thank you so much for all of your feedback on the channel page redesign. We’re listening and we hear you!
Please note that the redesign we launched yesterday is version #1 in a broadcaster-only beta period and is only viewable by broadcasters and editors. During this time, we’re gathering detailed feedback via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, blog post comments, Twitter responses, and Facebook comments. We’re taking it all into account as we continue to improve on the product.
Twitch broadcasters –
We’re always working overtime to make Twitch the best place to broadcast your gameplay. First, thank you for choosing Twitch and for making us the leading video platform and community for gamers.
You may have noticed some exciting announcements lately including partnerships with Sony Online Entertainment, EA Origin, and Paradox Interactive – and that’s just the beginning. While we’re working with a variety of game publishers and platforms to make broadcasting easier than ever, we’re also hammering away on the site to make sure it offers the best experience for both broadcasters and viewers.
Today we’re announcing a major update: a complete redesign of your Twitch channel pages. The new design gives you a more streamlined way for you to display information to your viewers, and for your viewers to experience your channel. We’re rolling out the new design in three distinct phases, beginning today.
