YouTube Premium starts testing Twitch-like feature in select countries
YouTube Premium. It's exactly what you get on Twitch if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber.
According to 9to5Google, YouTube Premium users in Brazil, Ireland, Japan, South Korea, and the United Kingdom will receive one free channel membership every month. However, this seems to be a “limited time offer” that will expire on May 31. The good news is the offer is already available in those five countries, so if you want to support your favorite streamer, now would be a good time to use that YouTube Premium subscription.
When YouTube Premium will make the offer standard, you'll have to choose who to support every month with your free channel membership since the subscription is non-recurrent. To support your favorite YouTube channel using the new feature, simply choose to “Join” and you should see an option to “Join for free.” If the option is not yet available, it means you're not eligible for the offer.
Creators supported with these free channel membership will receive the same amount as they would get if users would pay the usual $5 monthly subscription.
