Not all partnerships end up to be great, such as the partnership Twitch streamer Tfue had with the platform. His fellow streamers revealed that the contract required him to stream for a whopping 300 hours a month, which is unfair.
Earlier this year, Tfue retired from streaming, to his followers’ disappointment, with no hints of returning, and Ninja and Cloakzy, also Twitch streamers, said one of the reasons for his retirement was his contract with Twitch.
In a recent stream, Ninja and Cloakzy disclosed the “brutal” contract their fellow streamer had with Twitch. They discussed the facts while they played “Fortnite.”
Operated by Twitch Interactive, which is a subsidiary of Amazon, Twitch is a video live streaming service that focuses on video game live streaming, including music broadcasts, creative content, broadcasts of eSports events, and “in real life” streams.
Ninja and Cloakzy also disclosed how Tfue was obliged to stream for up to 300 months a month as part of the partnership with Twitch.
“I still don’t think people realize – I think it was, too. I legitimately think it was like 300. Yeah, I thought it was 250 to 300 hours,” Ninja said. “Yeah, Tfue was a slave to his contract, unfortunately.”
Not only that, but the two also revealed that if Tfue wanted a day off, he would have to stream in the neighborhood for 12 hours a day, six days a week.
“If he streamed 8 hours a day for 30 days, that’s 240 hours. Some people enjoy streaming that long. However. It would suck to have that as a requirement,” netizen @Damnlag commented on X.
Cloakzy said Tfue must be enjoying his life right now since he is already free from his contract.
