Auto host, get on this train!

Oct 25 2016 - By Danny Hernandez

We’re delighted with the reception and adoption of auto host so far. In a little under 4 weeks, more than 50,000 streamers and 1,000 Partners have set up auto hosting. Broadcasters hosting on a daily basis is also up more than 60% since launch.

Getting your peers to auto host you pays off big. We expect you to see something like 10% growth in minutes watched if you get 10 of your peers to auto host you [1]. As you’d expect, each additional channel auto hosting you helps, and bigger channels help more than smaller channels.

It is the perfect time to start or join a stream team. Everyone will be looking for other streamers to mutually host right now. We just recently made it easier to know who is auto hosting you, by distinguishing between hosting and auto hosting in the chat notification.

Good Times,


[1] We define a peer as a broadcaster that averages between half and twice as many concurrents. We’re seeing a 1.2% increase in minutes watched per peer that auto hosts a given channel. This effect size doesn’t surprise us, because auto host reclaims a large portion of the viewership that offline channels were leaving on the table. We understand adherence much better than we did in our previous experiment.
