Twitch is adding a new paid access tier to its video streaming platform. Twitch Turbo
provides "uninterrupted, ad-free live video game broadcasts" as well as "access to exclusive chat badges, emoticons, and colors which enable enhanced interactivity between broadcasters and viewers."
The new service also bumps paying viewers to the front of the customer service line and costs $8.99 per month.
Twitch currently services more than 23 million gamers on a monthly basis.
