Stream Display Ads

Organically integrate your brand messaging alongside live streams to connect with hyper-engaged viewers.

Stream Display Ads (SDA) provide advertisers with the opportunity to run their display ad creative along side with Twitch live stream content while the creator sound remains on ensuring the ad does not disrupt the viewer experience. Twitch offers two SDA ad sizes available through ADSP.

  • Skyscraper (160x600) - through this placement your ad will render between the live stream and chat
  • Lowerthird (728x90): through this placement your ad will render directly below the live stream player
