Feeling the heat of Mixer, Twitch has decided to extend its exclusive streaming contract with Dr Disrespect for another 2 years.
According to a leak, Dr Disrespect was offered a deal worth millions by Twitch. Further, the leak suggested that Disrespect will be taking home more than a million-dollar every year in this new deal. Since the departure of Shroud and Ninja, the two big profile streamers who combined had close to 350K subscribers at a time, the platform has been feeling the burn of Mixer.
Currently, Dr Disrespect have 4 million followers and thousands of subscribers on Twitch and losing those to rival Mixer would be devastating for Twitch. Mixer has already poached a huge portion of Twitch’s audience and losing Doc would make Mixer a bigger platform.
In an official statement, Dr Disrespect commented on the deal and said:
Yesterday while streaming he also said:
Dr Disrespect isn’t the only streamer to sign an exclusive deal with Twitch, recently Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys, Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, and Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo were also offered deals.
