Twitch - Turbo, Subscriptions and Adblock

Feb 27, 2014

Some people seem to be confused as to why Turbo exists when Ad-Block exists and why people subscribe to channels

If you use:
AdBlock = No ads, no revenue for the broadcaster and Twitch.

Turbo = No ads, Revenue for the broadcaster and Twitch for the ads that WOULD run on the site.

Subscriptions = No ads on subbed channel. Subscriber emotes. Sub-Only mode. 50% of $4.99 goes to Broadcaster, the other 50% goes to Twitch.

So which is better? Well, Subscriptions > Turbo > AdBlock.

SUPPORT YOUR FAVORITE STREAMERS RATHER THAN BLOCKING THEIR REVENUE!

Don’t be a dick about it. Streamers need to make money. Be considerate and turn off your AdBlock or Purchase Turbo and/or Subscribe to the channels!
