If you’re an avid Twitch viewer, chances are, each month you pay out $5 or more in order to subscribe to a selection of your favorite streamers. It’s a great way to support them and secure some benefits for yourself in the process, but the cost can quickly begin to mount if you aren’t careful. That’s where a Twitch lifetime sub would come in handy, though what exactly is one and how would you go about getting it? In this guide, we’ll outline what you need to know about securing a lifetime Twitch subscription.
How to become a Twitch lifetime subscriber
According to the official guide on Twitch lifetime subs, each partnered channel is limited to offering three overall lifetime subscriptions. Those lifetime subs can be gifted when the channel hits the following subscriber milestones:
- 50 subscribers
- 250 subscribers
- 500 subscribers
With lifetime subscriptions being in short supply and permanent once granted (there’s no way for streamers to cancel them), most will be incredibly careful about how they distribute their limited supply. As such, if you’d like to receive a lifetime subscription to a certain channel, your best bet is to be a regular and upstanding member of that community. If the streamer notices and appreciates the contributions that you make, they may choose to appoint you a lifetime subscriber and waive monthly subscription fees.
Unlimited lifetime subs on Twitch
There was a time when streamers were able to offer an unlimited number of lifetime Twitch subs to their viewers, but, evidently, this has since changed. Despite that, streamers that were granted the power to do so before these changes came into effect are still able to offer the incentive now.
Jesse Cox (@JesseCox) recently took to Twitter and confirmed this:

It’s worth noting that channels with the ability to offer this service are a rare breed in themselves, and even then they can opt not to do so.
