Twitch Affiliate requirements are a minimum of 50 followers, minimum of 500 minutes total streamtime, and an average* of 3 or more concurrent viewers across all streams with a minimum of 7 unique streaming days over a rolling 30-day period (“Days” run from 00:00 GMT to 23:59 GMT). This is an automated process with an invitation sent as soon as the requirements are met. Twitch Affiliate

Twitch Partner requirements are a minimum of 25 hours streamed with a minimum of 12 unique streaming days and an average* of 75 concurrent viewers (not counting raids, hosts, and embeds) over a rolling 30-day period OR can demonstrate a “large, engaged viewership/following on other services” (meaning popular YouTubers can skip the requirements). This is a manually reviewed process you must apply for and is approved or denied by an actual person and meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Twitch Partner

* These numbers can be difficult to calculate because they’re averaged for an entire stream then averaged again for the rolling 30-day period, but a basic idea is that they’re averaged for an entire stream, then averaged again per stream. For example, if you stream for one hour and have one viewer for the first 15 minutes then four viewers for the following 45 minutes, your average viewer count for that stream is 3.25. If your next two streams average out to 2 and 4 viewers (regardless of the length of those streams), then your average viewer count for those three streams together is 3. This is different than the calculation on Twitch’s analytics page and can cause confusion if the Path to Affiliate achievement doesn’t unlock even though it says you have more than 3 average viewers over the previous 30 days.

Note: When agreeing to become a Twitch Affiliate or Twitch Partner, you also agree to specific terms including but not limited to no concurrent streaming on other platforms (you can still stream to YouTube or Facebook, but you cannot do so while also streaming to Twitch) and a minimum 24 hour delay between the ending of a stream and the posting of any material from that stream to another platform (so if your stream ends at 5 PM on Monday, you can’t post the archive to YouTube until 5 PM on Tuesday).
