Once per year, during the month of September, viewers are given more of an incentive to subscribe to their favorite channels on Twitch. The event is called SUBtember and there are a few ways that streamers can maximize the event on their own channels.
What is SUBtember on Twitch?
SUBtember was first celebrated in 2017. The term is a play on words, merging together the words “Sub” and “September.” During the month of September, subscriptions on Twitch are discounted, making it more affordable for followers to support their favorite streamers.
Broadcasters who are trying to hit specific sub goals to unlock emotes or meet milestones can create special events throughout the month to make the most of the event. While the details of SUBtember vary from year to year, streamer strategies can remain the same.
Twitch SUBtember Perks 2020
In 2020, Capital One is sponsoring SUBtempber. During the month of September, viewers will be able to subscribe to channels under the following conditions:
- 20% off new and recurring one-month subs
- 25% off new and recurring three-month subs (must pay for three months during the month of September)
- 30% off new and recurring six-month subs (must pay for six months during the month of September)
Viewer benefits of Twitch subscriptions will be the same for SUBtember as they are for subs during any other time of the year.
