Worldwide Leading Streaming Service Twitch Removes Restricting Clause From Partner Contracts

By eliminating platform exclusivity from its contracts, Twitch now permits its partners to broadcast on YouTube, Facebook, and other platforms.

In the ongoing struggle for live streaming dominance online, Twitch is unquestionably well ahead of its rivals on YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, and other platforms. By negotiating exclusive contracts, which are getting more and more competitive amongst platforms, content producers are fighting this conflict.


In order to keep partners satisfied and sign new contracts, Twitch must attempt new things. The company's most recent campaign is especially creative because Twitch is removing its exclusive rule and allowing streamers to broadcast on other platforms.

Platform exclusivity has long been considered to be the main driver behind partner agreements. However, as competition intensifies, Twitch has concluded that enabling partners to use other platforms as long as they still consider Twitch their home is acceptable. As a result, Twitch partners may now stream on any service except Twitch, such as YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, and Instagram Live.


More specifically, Twitch has imposed various limitations on "web-based" broadcasting, which includes services like Facebook and YouTube. The limitation is that on these web-based platforms, Twitch streamers are not permitted to multi-stream. However, smartphone platforms like TikTok and Instagram Live permit multiple streaming.

In addition, Twitch streamers are free to broadcast on other sites. A Twitch streamer has the freedom to sign into YouTube after signing out of Twitch. Even those of its partners who opt to broadcast on other platforms are urged by Twitch to make use of the chance to persuade viewers to check them out on Twitch. Twitch affiliates might be concerned about if these changes also affect them, but they shouldn't be. This is due to the absence of an exclusive provision for Twitch affiliates. Most of the top Twitch streamers probably won't experience any big changes as a result of this. After all, Twitch is where they make their money, so they'd probably want to support that group over others.
