It seems that every person who attended college experienced a similar situation. There was a team of “cool boys”, and all others – just ordinary students. If you were a member of that special group, you were highly appreciated, got more smiles from girls, and treated like a big dog. Why have I just recalled this? There are followings and subscriptions, distinguished on Twitch. Subscribers are given a variety of privileges such as special emotes to use in a stream’s chat room, special alerts, etc. They are those “cool boys” from the college but you need to know how to handle with them if you have any issues to feel comfortable in Twitch universe.
How Do Channel Subscriptions Work
I have just mentioned that subscriptions provide viewers with special perks. However, you should read carefully a Twitch streamer’s channel page before subscribing, as the benefits vary.
How? Choose a streamer, click Subscribe in the upper right corner of the channel, and find out the conditions in a pop-up window.
From the other hand, subscribing is a way to support your favorite streamers financially. So, it is one of the methods to make money on Twitch.
The monthly default subscription fee is $4.99 USD, and it will be billed in advance for the following month. There are also Higher Tiers – $9.99 or $24.99 each that offer an extended list of perks.
There are options to pay for 3 or 6 months for some types of subscriptions.
You can change a subscription price from or to any of $4.99, $9.99, and $24.99 rates any time, and it will be changed immediately. So, there are no refunds for days that left.
Please note: all changes in subscriptions amounts can only be done via a web browser.
The price may vary depending on your country of residence.
Nota bene: some subscriptions are a one time purchase, that has a separate subscription price and duration, etc.
Please note: you are able to pay via credit card or PayPal, or choose More Methods that includes cash, cryptocurrencies, and gift cards.
Do Twitch Subs Automatically Renew?
Yes, they do. A monthly Twitch subscription is renewed automatically every month on the same day the first payment was made. For example, if you make a payment on the 12th of July, the next will happen on the 12th of August.

How to Cancel Auto Subscription
You should click on Don’t Renew link, and you will not be billed for the next payment period after your subscription expire. If you leave the auto-renew option enabled, it will give you a notice when you’ll be charged for the next time.
- Go to the subscriptions page.
- Choose the subscription you wish to cancel.
- Click Payment Info on the right.
- Select Don’t Renew and turn off auto sub.
Subscribing is an optional feature, and you are not obliged to support streamers this way. Perhaps you possess magic powers that inspire your favorite streamers through a screen without any payments. However, it is a cool option to help your heroes grow, and get pleasant bonuses.
Just remember that Twitch subscriptions renew automatically, and you should cancel it once you make up your mind to unsubscribe.
