Announcing Subscription Perks for Level|Up Series

As one of the premiere broadcasters within the fighting game community, Southern California-based Level|Up Series is highly regarded for their dedication to consistency and fantastic production. From major fighting game events such as their SoCal Regionals tournament series, to Wednesday Night Fights which is consistently one of most watched weekly fighting game programs on TwitchTV, Level|Up’s dedication to the community and their fans is undeniable.
Starting today, fans of Level|Up will have a whole new way to show support for one of their favorite broadcasters. TwitchTV is thrilled to be joining forces with Level|Up in offering premium subscription perks for their channel and beyond.
By supporting Level|Up Series at $2.99 per month, you’ll gain access to a number of subscriber-only perks.
– Exclusive subscriber-only emoticons ( and ) with more to be added on a regular basis
– Automatic entry into monthly subscriber-only giveaways and contests
– Opportunity to win Xbox Live online training sessions with Street Fighter legend, Alex Valle (determined by lottery of existing subscribers)

This new venture does not limit the quality, features, and service you’ve come to expect from Level|Up. Everyone, including those who choose not to support Level|Up with a subscription, will still have full access to all video quality options, chat options, VODs and everything else Level|Up is known to offer. This is simply a way for fans of Level|Up Series to support one of their favorite broadcasters in a way that will allow them a greater opportunity to create even more impressive events and features than ever before.
