Twitch reaches exclusive Disney deal, swipes at YouTube with prerecorded video tools

Video Producer will enable broadcasters to create special landing pages and countdown timers, for instances, in order to accumulate bigger audiences.

At the same time as it announced the Disney pact, Twitch also unveiled a new suite of tools to help creators enhance the prerecorded video viewing experience.

Revealed earlier today, the deal allows Twitch to stream exclusive content from big name YouTubers Jacksepticeye, Markiplier, LuzuGames and Strawburry17.

The Premieres feature lets creators schedule a first-viewing event around an uploaded video, similar to the launch of a movie.

Twitch, the gaming-focused streaming platform, has a new suite of tools for its creators in a package it is calling Video Producer. The tools will also give them a way to easily schedule re-runs, where viewers can still chat with each other like they can on lives instead of being stuck with watching conversations from the initial showing.

"We wanted to make the broadcasting of prerecorded content more meaningful and exciting by giving creators more control and opportunities to amplify awareness of their videos", Twitch's VOD product leader, Bob Bahramipour, said in a statement.

Most of these are already prominent streamers, however, the exclusive deal means that any content made for the liverstreaming service won't appear on their YouTube channels which each house more than 1 million subs at the minimum.

It is worth noting that none of the content creators are prohibited from creating content for their existing YouTube channels under this new agreement. This is a odd move to go about it, however, as three of the four content creators tapped for the deal have made their names through gaming-specific content. Disney's aim is similar, as it is looking to extend the confines of its YouTube content into other platforms. Are you looking forward to see the stars create new content?
