The moment many of you have been waiting for is here! Twitch has just announced that Twitch Affiliates will be getting their own shiny sub buttons this week.
If you’re an Affiliate, what can you expect?
All levels of subscription will be available for your viewers: $4.99, $9.99, and $24.99 per month. Amazon users will be happy to know that the Amazon Prime sub option will also work! Now, you and your community will have the ability to spread your mark all over Twitch with your very own emote(s)! One emote slot will be available for all levels of subscribers with two additional slots opening up for the $9.99 and $24.99 levels. You will also gain the ability to put your chat in Subscribers Only mode if need be.
Once your Sub button goes live, you’ll be able to upload your emote(s) by going to your Settings tab in your Dashboard. Once you upload be patient as it gets reviewed before going live. Twitch will be receiving thousands of emotes to go through!

Affiliates will not be able to upload custom subscriber icons. For all the differences between Partners and Affiliates, visit the Twitch FAQ.
As a side note, Twitch also mentioned at the very end of their announcement post that Subscription Gifting is in the works and will be live as soon as they can!
