Destiny talks about signing new deals with Kick and Rumble, will do truncated streams
Steven made the announcement at the 20-minute mark of his show on March 18, when he burst out laughing and said the next three months were going to be a “wild ride.” The content creator revealed the signing of a streaming deal with Kick, stating:
“All right, listen! These next three months are going to be a wild ride. OK? I hope I can, but… I’ve… I’ve signed a three-month probationary period with Kick. In order? We’ll… some… I think there were eight.”
He went on to talk about how he would truncate certain streams and switch to Kick to continue:
“It was eight Kick-exclusive streams a month. That means I’ll probably trim my stream and switch to Kick at the end of the day. Eight times a month for eight months. We’ll see how it goes.”
Alongside Kick, Destiny mentioned that he’s signed a two-year deal with Ontario-based platform Rumble:
“But I also signed a two-year Rumble thing. Mainly for dual streaming. But they also want a few clipped streams a month. Where I just cut and do the last few hours on Rumble. “
Destiny outlined its plans for the coming months:
“So I think for the most part I think what we’re going to do is we’re going to be dual-streaming and then I’m going to pick days, either tonight or tomorrow, I’m going to pick some days we’re going to kick. And some days we do rumble.”
The Nebraska native continued, adding:
“I’ll probably use my rumble and my kick streams to either watch shit we couldn’t. Maybe things related to vaccines.”
