Team Aether

As a Twitch Affiliate/Partner, you can join Team Aether by joining the Discord server and posting your Twitch channel link in the #join-twitch-team channel.

We also endorse all content creators that meets the requirements to earn some extra revenue by promoting our MTG Arena extension! You can read more about this here.

Joining Benefits

By being part of Team Aether you are automatically part of the hosting system where you get featured on the website whenever you stream. Visitors to the site that are not logged in we be presented with one random streaming Team Aether member. The only condition is that the streamer has the text AetherHub.com or #TeamAether somewhere in the title, it will only trigger when you stream MTG Arena.

Users on AetherHub.com will see the streamer on the front page on non-mobile devices. 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. This is part of the reason we require you to make it clear in your title that you are sponsored. The other reason is that we want to get the word out about our website and team.

We have made a very simple bot that will look your stream title and check that you have added one of the two correct phrases, it will only embed your stream if it finds one of these. You can have the text phrase anywhere in the title and it is not case sensitive, but don’t misspell it. The bot checks the streams every 10 minutes.

Note: One thing to note is that if you have a mature warning on your stream the users on Aetherhub will not automatically see it because they have to click a accept button on your stream before being able to view it. This will limit the effect of the sponsor system a lot!

Is this view-botting?

We use the official Twitch embed script and API to do this, and we meet all requirements for official Twitch embedding, this is not considered botting by any means. Some people might claim you are using bots, you can inform them that this is 100% legitimate and endorsed by Twitch and being part of Team Aether this is a benefit you get. to quote Twitch themselves (Source):

"View-botting is the practice of artificially inflating a live view count, using illegitimate scripts or tools to make the channel appear to have more concurrent viewers than it actually does. It is important to not confuse this with a legitimate rise in concurrent viewership, such as being hosted, the channel being embedded elsewhere, or some other promotional source."

Community Benefits

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 mostly other Magic Players.

Will this help me get Affiliated or Partnered?

The sponsoring system will help you get more eyes on the stream and boost your viewership since the viewercount goes up when it is viewed on an embedded web page. You can see how many extra views you got from the Dashboard by looking at viewer sources. The embedded viewers do not count for getting affiliated or partnered! Twitch knows how many of your views are embedded and how many are from normal views and they do not count embedded views as progress for getting partnered.
