The announcement comes alongside the launch of Twitch's new Video Producer creator tools created to somewhat shift the site's focus away from streaming, and give creators "more options, more control, and more opportunities to find viewers, grow an audience, and make a living doing what they love".

Twitch's new system contrasts with YouTube's in that, when an uploaded YouTube video goes live, it simply appears on the site. The new landing pages allow creators to chat with their audience and send out invitations. How about the new tools imbedded in Twitch for on-demand content? Viewers can set reminders from a video's landing page for an alert before the video is available.

Thus, one key point here is that it could significantly increase the earning potential for Twitch influencers: nobody can live-stream around the clock, but they could cue up reruns and premieres to up their broadcasting hours - and their revenue.

A total of four YouTubers (with a combined total of over 44 million subscribers, no less), are involved in the deal, and each will manage their own channels on Twitch. It's unclear if these new tools will result in better audience retention or even better profits for creators on Twitch, but nevertheless, Twitch is positioning itself as a platform that's consistently thinking about how it can improve the creator-audience relationship.

Countdown to government shutdown has Capitol Hill scrambling
Lawmakers are scrambling and headlines are screaming Friday as the USA government heads towards a shutdown . During the 2013 and 1995-96 shutdowns, Republicans were blamed for grinding the government to a halt.

This is all an attempt for Twitch to expand beyond its current streaming structure into pre-recorded videos similar to that of its rival, taking the opposite approach than YouTube.

Social video site Twitch has sealed a landmark deal with Disney that will see four of its largest creators comes to the platform to create exclusive content. The tools will enable users to re-broadcast live-streams, providing fans with a second opportunity to engage with content, and upload pre-recorded videos to their community of followers. Do you think the streaming site will be able to lure creators away from YouTube and its adpocalypse?

KitGuru Says: The new Video Producer suite seems like it is in favour of smaller content creators who are looking to grow, a distinct contrast to YouTube's new restrictions on its Partnership Program.
