Social video service Twitch is now streaming exclusive content from four Disney Digital Network content creators – Jacksepticeye, Markiplier, Strawburry17 and LuzuGames.
Each creator will manage its own Twitch channel, providing both live and on-demand content.
Not familiar with the names above? All have developed followings via their own YouTube channels:
Jacksepticeye – Sean McLoughlin, aka Jacksepticeye, has more than 17 million subscribers on YouTube. Hailing from Ireland, Jack achieved internet fame thanks to high-volume commentary for gaming videos (a genre known as “Let’s Play” or “LP,” made popular by internet personalities such as PewDiePie). He has since expanded into vlogging, sketches, music, and animated shorts. He also hosted the 2016 South by Southwest gaming awards, as well as co-hosting last July’s Disney Games Showcase at D23. According to Twitch, he even sold out a US tour.
You can view his Twitch channel at Twitch.tv/Jacksepticeye.
If you don’t know Jack, here’s what you can expect:
Markiplier –Markiplier, an American who goes by Mark Fischbach in the brick-and-mortar world, claims more than 19 million YouTube subscribers. Like Jack, Markiplier offers LP videos. He also “has recently diversified into highly-produced skits” and has recently returned from an international tour.

Strawburry17 — Meghan Camarena, who runs her Strawburry17 YouTube channel from Los Angeles, posts vlogs, gaming, cooking, cosplay, DIY, music and scripted content. Meghan and friend Joey Graceffa were also on The Amazing Race’s 22nd season. And she co-hosted the Disney Games Showcase at D23 with Jacksepticeye.

Luzu – Luzu, whose LuzuGames is purported be one of the most-viewed Spanish-language channels, with more than 7 million subscribers, also has an English-language YouTube version. Originally from Spain but now an LA resident, Luzu is said to be “notorious for his funny, honest, and relatable personality.” He appears in LPs, vlogs, and videos with other creators.
