Residing in upstate New York, Tim “TimTheTatman” Betar has become one of the most popular livestreamers in the world. His positive and boisterous attitude has endeared himself to fans, and it shows by his consistently massive audience.
Starting with Call of Duty: Black Ops II more than five years ago, TimTheTatman, 28, has grown a lot. When he began streaming, he was working a full-time job. But with more viewers tuning in over time, Tim was able to completely focus on his hobby full-time a few years ago.
Since then, his popularity has continued to grow. The last year in particular has been an impressive one, with his Twitch subscribers increasing by over 12,000 from April to May.
What games does he play?
While he primarily plays Fortnite: Battle Royale now, Tim’s stream grew immensely as he played both Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Overwatch. He even regularly played with former Cloud9 CS:GO player Spencer “Hiko” Martin before turning to Overwatch.
When does he stream?
Tim streams six days per week, with Sunday being his only rest day. From Monday to Thursday, he streams for about three hours in the morning starting at 9am CT, and then another stream at night, which begins at 7pm CT.
On Friday and Saturday, he does a slightly longer morning stream, which begins at 7am CT. And as is the case with most streamers, Tim’s schedule may change if he chooses to switch up times.
How much money does he make?
Unsurprisingly, Tim is rather successful. His subscription split is unknown, but most other large streamers earn at least $3 for each $4.99 Twitch subscription. Tim almost certainly earns that—and likely even more.
In addition to his subscription revenue, Tim receives donations constantly during the stream. The total of his donations per month is not public knowledge, but it certainly adds at least a few thousand to his monthly income. The same can be said for his YouTube channel, where he has nearly 1 million subscribers.
To make a conservative estimate, we have created a table below, which shows how many Twitch subscribers he has had in each complete month in 2018, and how much he would make at a minimum if he earned $3 from each subscription.
