OfflineTV’s LilyPichu will stream exclusively on YouTube
Popular Twitch Streamer and OfflineTV Member Lily “LilyPichu” Ki announcement its decision to stream exclusively with YouTube starting Friday.
LilyPichu recently celebrated 10 years as a member of the Twitch Partner Program. She announced she was joining YouTube in a video posted to Twitter. The style of video, where a major streamer will choose between a purple and red option, denoting Twitch and YouTube respectively, has grown in popularity.
LilyPichu joins a wave of popular streamers who have left Twitch for YouTube, including Ludwig Ahgren, Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter, Tim “TimTheTatman” John Betar and many more. She is the first OfflineTV member to stream exclusively on YouTube.
As a veteran Twitch streamer, the loss of LilyPichu is no small blow to the Twitch platform. More and more streamers are attacking lucrative streaming deals with YouTube when transitioning between platforms. YouTube continues to grow its live streaming section by attracting stars like LilyPichu.

LilyPichu began her streaming career creating League of Legends content, including musical parodies. Since then, its content has branched out to include a host of different games and IRL content.
Over the past month, LilyPichu has averaged more than 5,000 viewers on her stream, according to Twitch Tracker. As of press time, LilyPichu has 2,152 subscribers and 2,459,039 subscribers on Twitch. She has streamed over 5,000 hours, mostly in the League of Legends and Just Chatting categories.
LilyPichu already has one Youtube channel with nearly 3 million subscribers. Right now, it’s mostly populated with vlogs and highlights from his Twitch streams.
While everyone in the OfflineTV content group primarily streams on Twitch, LilyPichu isn’t the first to sign an exclusive deal with another platform. For a time, Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang had an exclusivity deal to stream on Facebook Gaming which has since expired.
