There are multiple ways to be affiliated with TCGPlayer and all of them work together and stack. The commission you get is set and adjusted by TCGplayer.com, Aetherhub does not have anything to do with the rates as this is a partnership between you and TCGPlayer. They reward you based on new users you bring in to their site.

By being part of Team Aether you are eligible to be part of Sponsoring system each season. We define a season from the start of a new Standard legal MTG set and until the next set has been released. During end of each season we go through our sponsored streamers and to check who is still eligeble and remove inactive streamers. We then send out an email to all our team members with a link to our calendar where they can find a spot that fits their streaming schedule, send us your preferred timeslot, up to 4 hours long and your timezone. Check that it is available and not taken by other streamers. We will manually decide who gets sponsorship for the next sesason, posting in an available timeslot does not guarantee sponsorship. We look at multiple parameters for sponsoring, having an established stream and some reach is great as the sponsoring spot takes up our premium video ad space when it runs. It is also important that you consistently stream during the sponsoring window to continue with your spot.
The users on AetherHub.com will see the streamer on the front page, it also appears in the footer of the website as long as they are not logged in. We want to give each sponsored streamer a window of maximum 4 hours each week. Disclosing that the stream is sponsored is very important, not only is this important for us, it is also a law by the FTC – Federal Trade Commission. Sponsored streamers are given an advantage over other streamers by being embedded on AetherHub.com and disclosing this in a clear and unambiguous way is very important. You will therefore be required to include the text “Sponsored by AetherHub.com” in your stream title. We have made a very simple function that will take your stream title and look for that exact phrase, it will not embed your stream if this requirement is not met. You can have the text phrase anywhere in the title and it is not case sensitive, but don’t misspell it. If you forget to add it in the title, the function will recheck every 10 minutes and start as soon as you have added it. Also note that the system will only trigger if you stream Magic: The Gathering.
After joining Team Aether you should add the Twitch Team on your Auto-host list in your Twitch Dashboard. You can find this option under Settings -> Channel. Turn on "Host team channels" and also "Auto host channels", this helps your own stream grow and at the same time you help other people in the Community. Since Team Aether is made up of MTG streamers you will be hosting and other Magic Players.
