Top 10 Most Watched Channels on Twitch

calendar1 Last Updated

We used SullyGnome to find the top 10 most-watched streamers of all time. Not only did we look at the top 10 streamers for every year since 2016, we also looked at others in the top 20 that performed well year over year.

How We Determined Which Streamer Was Watched Most

We added the Twitch watch hours together to come up with this list. We didn’t add hours watched from any other platforms, keeping this purely Twitch.

Disclaimer: SullyGnome doesn’t have data from before August 2015, so these numbers are based on data since that date through April 2020. We plan to update this post periodically to keep it current.
