Participants in Nintendo’s Creator Program will no longer be able to livestream gaming sessions on YouTube. Channels currently signed up to Nintendo’s revenue sharing program are entirely prohibited from livestreaming under the new rules, unless they choose to de-register the channel and register their videos individually. Separate channels by the same content producer are allowed however.
Hopefully this will not impact any Pokémon channels; Pokémon content is not managed by Nintendo under their program, but channels may be part of Nintendo’s program.
Definitely a step back for fans and creators alike! Thanks for the heads up My Nintendo News!
