About Twitch Turbo
The company developed Twitch Turbo as a subscription service where all users were offered an ad-free viewing experience across the site. This was before Amazon’s arrival on Twitch.
However, to the dismay of streamers worldwide, the platform has started pressuring streamers to air more ads in their streams.
Twitch Turbo price increase
Yesterday, May 25, the Twitch Turbo price increase announcement was made. The platform informed all users that prices had a 30% increase. Many Twitch Turbo users are outraged by this increase as Twitch Turbo does not add new features or benefits.
To announce to all users worldwide, Twitch has sent out an email informing the changes to their monthly subscription fees.
In the case of the United States, users will go from paying $8.99 to $11.99 per month.

Various price increases for Twitch Turbo
The 30% increase for Twitch Turbo is for the United States. However, the increase is much more than 30% in other parts of the world.
As some users on Reddit expressed, the increase in some regions exceeds 30%. Recall that previously the Twitch Turbo fee was $8.99 worldwide, so each user paid the equivalent in their local currency.
However, with the monthly price increase, Twitch Turbo has a fixed rate in each nation. So in the UK, the increase is almost 50% of the price.
With Twitch Turbo’s fixed pricing worldwide, the subscription is equal to that of platforms like Disney+ in some regions. For now, we must wait and see if users continue paying the subscription or migrate to another platform.
