    Hi!,

    Sooo.... Some of you should know what Twitch.tv is. And if you don't - it's a website for streaming games. But recently I noticed that people stream music there also. Do you think streaming music or something else (like anime, tv shows) on twitch.tv would make me money?

    Thank you in advance!

    Don't think you can stream this kind of things.
    On some occasion they'll stream Music Festival. Some people are also streaming "Gaming Talk Show", or "Live Music", for example a guy playing video game themes on Piano.

    They will ban you if your stream is not gaming focused. It can be other things, but the emphasis has to be on gaming.

    You can stream music if you are a composer. But atm I don`t see that as a really profitable method. It would be better to start streaming games and go from there.

    Btw, any lirik subs here?

    Music: Before everyone goes "Footloose" on us, please note the following:

    Must be a visual performance - Whether you're singing or playing an instrument, the performance must be an audio AND visual performance. We must see you performing. Remember, Twitch is a video platform and any performance with no live visual component is not what we're about.

    Must be music creation - The following activities are not allowed, other than to a trivial extent during the process of a gaming or music creation broadcast:


    Karaoke

    Dancing to someone else's music

    Lip sync/Impersonation


    Non-gaming, non-music content: Video games, board games, card games, fantasy sports, LARP games, and acceptable music content (see above). And while it's nice to take a break and just chill out with your audience, please ensure that your channel's primary focus is on gaming or music creation
