Dr. Disrespect

YouTube streamer Dr Disrespect knows a thing or two about streaming on Twitch, as he had one of the most popular and profitable twitch channels in history before being permanently banned in 2020.

Now, Doc claims that Twitch streamers have it easy compared to the content creators who stream on YouTube, pointing out the available audience and claiming he would hit 100,000 viewers per day if allowed back on the Amazon owned platform.

“It blows my mind… you don’t even have to try on Twitch” he said during a live stream on July 26th (h/t Dexerto).

He then went on to point to streamer TimtheTatman, saying “Literally, he’s got 50,000 people watching him watching other people’s solo games, and they suck. He’s got like 50k viewers!”

“I’m telling you, right now, I’m telling you if we were still on Twitch, we would have 100,000 people,” Doc continued.

“On YouTube, when I’m streaming, releasing videos, I’ve got to reach out to my team, I gotta make a whole bunch of calls; [figure out] what’s the algorithm today?

“On top of that, I’ve gotta make sure I’m setting up thumbnails, keywords, YouTube hashtags, and then after all that we still get buried behind games like Minecraft and Roblox. It feels like we’re pushed to the side. We’re pushed all the way down, deep down into this wannabe community infrastructure, allegedly livestream-focused infrastructure that YouTube has.”

The reports goes on to state that the two parties have come to an agreement in principle, but there is nothing binding that has been signed. Another source cited in the report said that a deal may be announced by the end of September.

A licensing agreement between Twitch and music labels has been in the works for years, per the report, and would likely bring an end to the DMCA takedowns on the platform, a big plus for twitch streams moving forward, should a deal become official.

TimTheTatman

Timothy ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar made headlines last week when he officially announced that he would be leaving the Amazon owned Twitch streaming platform and bringing his content over to YouTube.

Now, TimTheTatman is talking about what led to his decision to leave Twitch for YouTube, pointing to his friendship with Dr Disrespect, who exclusively streams on YouTube, as one of the factors in his move.

“I’m very happy that I can play with Doc again today and forever,” TimTheTatman said (h/t Dexerto). “I mean, if there is one thing that I know myself and my community has missed a lot, it’s games with Doc. Having that camaraderie back and forth [was great].”

“When we are streaming together, both of us are having a great time because it’s just such easy back and forth. He’s quick-witted, and I’m a literal sit-down comedian. And that dynamic, I know a lot of people missed that, myself included.”

Now, fans will get to see TimTheTatman streaming with Doc again soon!
