Whoa… that was super quick! And that makes him the first ever Mixer streamer to reach one million subscribers.
Earlier this week, Fortnite mega-streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins stormed the gaming industry when he made the big switch by leaving Amazon.com Inc’s streaming platform Twitch to join Microsoft Corp’s live streaming service Mixer. Less than a week into the new association, Ninja has already racked up an extraordinary one million subscribers on Mixer. The streaming superstar took to Twitter to thank his supporters and fans.
Today we hit 1,000,000 active subscribers on mixer ^-^ thank you for all the incredible support. I haven't felt this good in a long time. pic.twitter.com/kdLgBJk0Ud

It is indeed an impressive feat, especially considering Mixer is significantly a smaller platform than Twitch. It is also testimony to Ninja’s ever-growing popularity. Having said that, it is yet to be seen whether or not he manages to maintain that success once the two-month free subscription runs out on September 30, as users will then require to pay a fee (approx. $5.99) to continue receiving exclusive subscriber perks including custom emotes and ad-free streams. Only time will tell how many of these one million subscribers pay to get the subscription for Ninja’s channel on Mixer.
On the other hand, if Ninja’s magic continues to charm gaming enthusiasts, he might just cross several million subscribers before long.
Ninja, who rose to stardom by showing off his expertise at the popular battle royale game Fortnite, has earned millions broadcasting himself playing the title along with many other games on Twitch and YouTube. As per the analytics website TwitchMetrics, he was the second most watched Fortnite player after Turner “Tfue” Tenney. His Twitch account has over 14 million subscribers.
