The iPhone users of Twitch can subscribe to their favourite streamer but it comes with a catch. You have to shell out $4.99 on all other platforms of Twitch but it costs $1 extra through the iOS app. An official blog post suggests that you can purchase iOS sub tokens for $5.99, which can further be redeemed for one-month Tier 1 subscription.
Twitch’s website and other platforms offer the same for $5. The company says this new additional will help creators earn similar revenue from subscriptions. The platform will offer compensation to creators for the iOS subscriptions that they receive. The offering is similar to subscriptions purchased on any other platform. The subscriptions will continue to work differently on iOS than any other platform.
The viewers on Twitch get you things like sub badges, subscriber emotes, ad-free viewing, sub-only chat, and more. You can buy up to 12 tokens at the same time but it is unclear whether you can purchase Tier 2 or Tier 3 subscriptions.
The tokens cost a little more on desktop subscriptions. Twitch accounts for Apple’s App Store fees as well. The desktop subscription fees is $4.99, but you can buy two for $8.99 until the end of the month.
