Myth announced on Monday that he’s the next Twitch streamer to leave the platform for YouTube.

Another Big Move in the Streaming World

Ali Kabbani, a.k.a Myth, has signed an exclusive deal to livestream and post videos on YouTube Gaming. The popular streamer posted an announcement video on his Twitter account, explaining the switch was his decision alone.

The move comes after a few other popular content creators, including TimTheTatman, LilyPichu, and Sykkuno, replaced Twitch with YouTube.

Kabbani first started his YouTube channel in 2013. However, rose to fame on Twitch, where he has garnered over 7.4 million followers. He later started playing professionally for TSM but left the team in 2021.

Myth will livestream and post more focused and produced videos on his channel, enticing both new and returning fans over to his content. He will kick off his YouTube streaming career under the new deal on Tuesday.

“If I’m having a better time making better content, my theory is it’ll be better for people to watch as well,” Kabbani said.

Some reports also suggest these moves are happening because Twitch was considering a change to how it pays its biggest stars. Neither Myth nor other streamers moving to YouTube have revealed any information regarding either company’s pay structure.

Twitch remains the industry leader, boasting 9.5 million streamers. YouTube, however, will continue in its attempts to lure big names away from the platform.
