Available now: subscribe to your favorite streamers on iOS

Oct 18 2019

At TwitchCon San Diego we announced a lot of cool new stuff coming to Twitch that will help streamers connect with their communities and help viewers support their favorite streamers.

Until now, viewers on iOS weren’t able to subscribe to their favorite channels from the Twitch mobile app. That changes today with the launch of iOS Sub Tokens. Starting NOW, viewers on iOS can subscribe to any Partner or Affiliate channel directly from the Twitch iOS app.

Subscriptions on iOS work a little differently than on desktop, so here’s everything you need to know:Viewers can purchase iOS Sub Tokens through the Twitch app. Each token can be redeemed for a one-month Tier 1 subscription. You can extend your subscription by redeeming more tokens [up to 12 at one time] or by purchasing more tokens to redeem later. These Sub Tokens can be redeemed on any Affiliate or Partner channel that offer Tier 1 subscriptions, and they offer the same benefits as if you subscribed on desktop: sub badges, subscriber emotes, ad-free viewing, sub-only chat—all of it. 

Creators get paid a share of the iOS subscription, just as they do for subscriptions purchased on other platforms. To ensure streamers earn a similar revenue from Subs regardless of platform, tokens cost $5.99 to account for mobile app store fees. 

To start subbing on iOS, update your Twitch app and click the video screen to make the subscribe button appear. And to celebrate the launch, all through October, you’ll be able to buy 2 Sub Tokens for only $8.99*.
