Reasons Why Users Unsubscribe on Twitch

  • Streamer you subscribe to changers stream schedule

If a streamer you are subscribed to suddenly decides to stream in a schedule that you can’t follow, you will have to cancel your subscription to them. 

  • You just don’t like the streamer anymore

If you find yourself not being entertained by a streamer’s content anymore, then it is ok to cancel your subscription. 

  • Changes in the payment method of the streamer

Updating your payment method to a streamer unfortunately requires you to unsubscribe to them first. Just resubscribe after the payment method update. 

  • Subscribing to streamers is making you more broke than you need to be

If you had more money, you wouldn’t mind staying subscribed. But you could use the money on other important things, so you unsubscribe.
