Reviews

Fantastic Theme for New or Established Streamers

I originally used the free version of this theme and loved it so much that I bought the premium version. The countdown application in the stream helped my audience grow while also keeping me on a dedicated schedule. New visitors to my site were able to view my stream and engage with my audience without any issue. I actually can't rate this application highly enough. After my experience with the theme, I tried both their Twitch TV Easy Embed plugin and their Twitch TV Rail plugin; I vouch very highly for both. Highly HIGHLY recommend use of any and all product that StreamWeasel provide. They're a great company. Very hands on and have actively replied to any/all emails/request for support I have. I freaking love them.
