Mixer’s growth only continues following its recent exclusivity deal with hit streamer, Ninja.
What you need to know
- Mixer and top Twitch personality “Ninja” have signed a deal to broadcast exclusively via the Microsoft-owned live streaming platform.
- Ninja has already surpassed half a million subscribers following his first stream.
A recent deal between Tyler “Ninja” Blevins and Microsoft saw the hit Fortnite streamer break away from Twitch, adopting its Mixer live-streaming platform. From hosting Drake and Travis Scott on his broadcasts to being crowned among TIME’s most influential people of 2019, he’s rapidly become a top personality in gaming.
: Mixer’s deal with Ninja is a huge game streaming coup for Microsoft
Blevins hosted his first Mixer live stream on August 2 live from Chicago-based music festival Lollapalooza, just one day after the Microsoft partnership. The move has already drawn fans from the Amazon-owned rival, celebrating over half a million followers on Mixer in just over 24 hours. Although his prior 14.7 million Twitch following dwarfs the figure, it already puts Ninja as Mixer’s second-biggest creator, only surpassed by “TheGrefg” at 800,000.
Ninja took to Twitter to highlight the milestone from the festival.
