Co-streaming on Twitch

Co-streaming on Twitch [Updated 2/19]

On Twitch we don’t just watch. Everyone and everything from the streamers, viewers, chatters, and the content you stream all play a part in creating an experience that could only happen on Twitch. It’s our shared interests that hold everything together.

Co-streaming is a great way to connect with your community around the things you love besides what you normally stream. With a co-stream, you can put your unique spin on a broadcast other than your own to create a novel experience for everyone.

If you’re interested in co-streaming on your channel, you can read more at Creator Camp, or get detailed directions on how to do it here.

Co-streaming is enabled for many special events and Twitch-licensed content throughout the year, including things like marathons, award shows, and conventions. If you’re ready to give co-streaming a spin, here are some upcoming co-streamable events.


NBA G League (airing Fridays & Saturdays, Jan 25-Mar 23): Twitch has partnered with NBA G League, the NBA’s official minor league, to broadcast 16 games over the course of the season. You can also use the official extension with your community so viewers can earn points for tuning in, predicting player stats, and ruling the leaderboard while repping your community.

Impact Wrestling (airing Fridays, Jan 11-Mar 1): Twitch enters the ring every Friday at 7pm PST with the flagship show from Impact Wrestling. Follow every match and add your commentary to the action for a truly Twitch experience with your community.

TV shows:

Doctor Who: Dalek Specials (airing Feb 17–23): The classic BBC sci fi series that became a significant part of British pop culture and a huge cult following is back on Twitch. This marathon covers the 12 adventures featuring the Daleks — from 1963’s “The Daleks” to 1988’s “Remembrance of the Daleks” as well as 1983’s 20th anniversary story “The Five Doctors.” Marathon will be English-only.

Shaw Brothers Kung Fu Marathon (airing Thursdays & Fridays, until Mar 8): Shaw Brothers, a film production company with iconic hits like Five Deadly Venoms, Crippled Avengers, and King Boxer, is bringing 44 classic kung fu movies from the 70s to Twitch.

There will be more events co-streamed throughout the year, so check back for more. Happy co-streaming!
