Meet the players
We just celebrated our 200th episode! (on April 19, 2019)
To celebrate the occasion, Paul made this sweet intro video which you can check out here:
Our Wednesday and Friday intro videos/highlight reels for your viewing pleasure:
And who could forget Xstream-mas??
Paul put on a real tour de force during the 11 days of Xstream-mas 2018 – streaming every day of his winter break from work, with Snow joining him for a special New Year’s Eve stream to cap the event.
Broadcast Schedule: Wednesdays at 7p & Fridays at 8p
Every week we play a different machine on location – be it an arcade or a collector’s home.
Stay at Home Fridays
Who wants to go out on a Friday night? Certainly not Snow & Paul. We’d much rather stay home and play a game in our home collection, drink beer and hang with our dog, Lunchbox.
VODs or Videos on Demand
Past broadcasts can be viewed on our channel and remain available for 2 months after that episode’s live broadcast date.
!Commands - ways that followers & subscribers can interact
You earn points from watching our stream, following our channel and subscribing. Those points can be spent on commands that encourage or taunt us as we play. Here’s a sampling of available commands:
Support Colorado Pinball (it's often free!)
Be a pal and help grow pinball in Colorado
Two easy ways to support Colorado Pinball are to follow and subscribe to Colorado Pinball on our Twitch Channel. For those who have Amazon Prime, subscribing is free! For those who don’t, you can sub at the basic level for just $5. It shows us you care and kicks a little money our way.
Don’t know how to follow/subscribe? Then skip on down to the Twitch FAQ and we’ll help you out.
How to watch Twitch: Desktop, Mobile, TV
Twitch.tv is a live streaming platform built largely for video games and eSports broadcasts, though you will find a wide variety of content on their website. As of February 2018, it has 2 million broadcasters monthly and 15 million daily active users. Read more about Twitch here.
Pinball is growing like crazy including on Twitch. There are more and more pinball broadcasters popping up to showcase new game reveals, gameplay tutorials, tournaments, tech streams, live podcasts and seminars.
With a Twitch account you can follow all your favorite pinball channels so you know when they go live, make highlight clips, participate in chat to interact with the broadcaster and fellow viewers as well as support your favorite streamers with subscriptions (aka subs) and Bits.
Follow us to be notified when we go live. Plus it shows us you care! Oh, you.. We care about you too.
NOTE: If you ever have problems following, subscribing, buying/using Bits, etc. from a mobile device – just visit our channel on your mobile device’s web browser and make sure Twitch is displaying in desktop mode – then you’ll be able to do whatever you need from there. Sometimes Twitch can be a pain in the butt.
Most importantly, subscribing to our channel supports what we do by kicking a little money our way – and you get that warm fuzzy feeling for being a pal. It also gives you exclusive Colorado Pinball emotes (emoji) that you can use in our channel’s chat or any chat on Twitch. It’s a great way to cheer on pinballers all over Twitch while showing you love Colorado Pinball!
There are two types of subscriptions: regular subscriptions (paid) and Amazon Prime subscriptions (free!).
For regular subscriptions, you can sub at one of 3 different tiers (price points): $5, $10 and $25. You have the option to make the payment monthly (auto renews until you cancel) or as a one time subscription.
Because Amazon bought Twitch back in 2014, those of you with Amazon Prime accounts can use it to sub at no cost to you! Pretty cool, right?
How to sub on a Desktop:
Log in to Twitch and visit the Colorado Pinball channel. At the top you’ll see a subscribe button. Click that and you’ll have the option to sub with Prime (for free!) or with your cold hard cash.
How to sub on a Mobile device:
Visit our channel on your mobile device’s web browser and make sure Twitch is displaying in desktop mode – then you’ll be able to click the Subscribe button and select sub with Prime or sub with cash. Sometimes Twitch can be a pain in the butt.
Bits can be purchased through Twitch and are used to “tip” streamers. That’s why you’ll see a low-ball glass or tip jar on our screen when we’re live.
You can purchase Bits by clicking the button just to the right of the Subscribe button. Again, on mobile you’ll need to visit Twitch via your device’s web browser, then click on Desktop Mode in order to see the Get Bits button. Though the purchase price varies depending upon how many you’re buying, what it means to streamers when received from viewers is 1 Bit = 1 cent. So, 100 Bits is $1.
To use bits, click on the diamond shaped icon in the chat window and then select the amount. And thank you!
