Happy Monday, everyone! I just got done watching the pilot episode of The Last of Us, and I'm already hooked! It looks great, is well cast, and does a great job setting up the story. Meanwhile, there's some equally exciting stuff to talk about. BobDuckNWeave posted his ad earnings from a single YouTube stream versus a month on Twitch. It offers a good starting point for a more extensive conversation, so I made a video talking about it! Give it a watch after finishing this email. And with that, let's get right into it.
- Most viewers will now see Chat History load on entering a channel- an old experiment that has finally seen an expanded release.
- Twitch's Android TV App has received a significant update (screenshots here) - most notably, you can no longer chat via the app.
- Satire site Hard Drive's Twitch story is too real - "Twitch Front Page Just 10 Streamers Reacting to Each Other's Controversies."
- Partner Ad Incentive Offers appear to be worse than January offers (Q1 is always bad for ads in general.) I will be tracking it more actively this year to generate some trends - so if you're a partner, please share!
