Twitch reality show coming in March 2018

Debuting in March of next year, Twitch is making a reality TV show called Stream On. The show is described as an American Idol show where aspiring streamers “will face challenges designed to test important streamer skills, and be evaluated by a panel of Twitch judges,” according to their official blog post.

Twitch says anyone in the Twitch Partnership Program is free to submit an audition for participation in the show.  The opportunity promises to take streamers who “are right on the cusp of making streaming a full-time” gig and push them into the spotlight through increased exposure.

Of course Twitch is all about viewer interaction, so while contestants will be streaming from their own homes, there will be a good bit of audience participation. 

The show which is hosted by Twitch Studios is said to “take place across multiple channels as contestants compete through each week from their home streaming setup, and the action will be punctuated by a weekly recap and elimination show from Twitch Studios.”

The grand prize awarded to the streamer who best shows an ability to entertain and lead their community will be awarded the grand prize of $5,000 a month for a year totaling $60,000.
