Step 1

The first thing you have to do is open your Twitch channel. On the top right corner, you can see a small arrow next to your profile name. Select that tiny arrow to open the menu. 

Step 2

 This is the primary menu for Twitch. You will use this one a lot. Here you can see the subscriptions, friends, payment options, etc. But, what we are looking for is archiving your broadcasts. To do that, you need to select the third option from the top. And that option is “Dashboard”. 

Step 3

This is one of the most useful menus you will use. If you haven’t seen it before, you need to check it out. You can see the number of people who have viewed your streams and much more. We highly suggest that you check out the dashboard. You will need it. To go to the section you need, select “Channel”. 

Step 4

 And here it is! This is the option you were waiting for. Select “Store past broadcasts”. Make sure that the checkmark is green. There is nothing else you should do. No “confirm” or “yes” button. The changes will automatically be saved on your Twitch account. 

However, there is one thing you should have in mind. This option allows you to archive your broadcasts. But, only for a set amount of time. What that means is, you will only archive them for 14 days. Unless you have a Prime account or membership, you won’t get more days than that. 


That’s it! Now you know how to archive broadcasts on your Twitch channel. All the streams will be automatically saved. You can later use the stream to edit it and make a wonderful video. The choice is yours. As you can see, it is pretty easy to archive all of your stuff. All it takes is just a couple of easy steps and a few seconds to do it.
