If you’ve grown tried of all those pesky ads clogging up your stream time on Twitch, they’ve got the solution for you. Twitch has announced their brand new subscription service, Twitch Turbo. It’ll cost $8.99 a month and it will let you turn off all the adds, give you an exclusive turbo badge, get access to custom emoticons, expanded chat colors, and priority customer support.

I can’t see this selling well currently, because there are already methods to bypass the ads. You’d almost be paying 9 dollars a month for the badge and custom emoticons, which in and of themselves just aren’t worth that kind of money. Hopefully it’ll get better over time because Twitch is a great service that, like all great services, could benefit from some extra revenue.

Pretty much unbeatable in any game. Master of all, n00b in none. My forte is whatever is in the system, arcade cabinet or on the computer. I enjoy winning but have gotten so used to it I'd like to give losing a try to see how it tastes. This is my Xbox Live gamertag, add me. My time is money, but if you're lucky maybe I'll give you a free whoopin'.
