Twitch Adds A Premium Service That Removes… Ads

By   /   Feb 4, 2013

Twitch TV, a site that allows gamers to record and stream their exploits, is launching a new feature that removes advertisement, for a price.

If you’re like me, the seemingly constant stream of commercials dissuades you from truly enjoying Twitch TV. That all changes with Twitch Turbo; with its subscription fee of $8.99 a month, you can watch all your favorite players, without interruption.

Along with the ad-free service, you’ll also receive premium service when it comes to contacting customer support; which pretty much means that you get a pass to the front of the line.

“The Twitch community loves watching video games, chatting, and broadcasting,” said Twitch CEO Emmett Shear in a press statement. “The average viewer watches over an hour and a half of video each day. Over two-thirds of our logged-in users chat each day.

“We wanted to find a way to provide the ultimate Twitch experience,” he added. “We’re very excited to launch it, and we’ll be looking to the community to help us make Twitch Turbo even … ultimatier.”
