Here's what Subscriber Stream looks like.

Anyone who isn't a subscriber and lands on a channel with a Subscriber Stream will see a preview. They can join immediately by subscribing. 

In order to broadcast a Subscriber Stream, a streamer has to be a Twitch Affiliate or Partner, and they must have broadcasted a minimum of 90 unique days as Affiliate or Partner without violating the Twitch Community Guidelines. 

Twitch envisions Subscriber Stream could be used for a variety of purposes. For example, it could be a way for competitive streamers to take requests on heroes or champions to play, or music streamers could make all-request set lists.
