Further, Twitch.tv allows you to become a subscriber for a small fee of each month. As a subscriber, you will be able to ditch the pesky ads that play whenever you sign in to a live broadcast—it’s these ads that support the twitch.tv infrastructure. By subscribing you will continue supporting the infrastructure while it may also give me a small amount to support tea purchases and tea-related charities, etc. To find out more, go to:
