The landscape of streaming has just shifted dramatically as Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has just jumped ship from Twitch to Microsoft’s Mixer in a new exclusivity deal! Ninja is still easily one of the most recognized and biggest streamers with over 14 million followers on Twitch alone. Microsoft is sure to be hoping that many of those said followers will follow the Fortnite streamer to his new home. To celebrate the move Microsoft is even offering free channel subscriptions to Ninja’s Mixer channel. Check out the announcement in Ninja’s video below!
Having been streaming to Twitch, Mixer, YouTube and Dlive for nearly 5 years I can’t wait to see how much this will change the streaming landscape. Twitch has held the dominant position of streaming platforms for years while all the others have tried eking out there own places to fit in. Exclusivity deals are a huge way for platforms to grow with another recent example being PewDiePie’s exclusivity deal with DLive. Regardless if the Ninja deal turns out like Microsoft hopes it will I am still excited for Tyler and for the future of Mixer as a platform!
Will you be folliwing Ninja over to Mixer?
