The reasons why Streamate is one of the top-rated live cam sites out there are obvious right from the first visit. The simple, user-friendly interface, mostly affordable prices and wide variety of performers make it truly convenient for users who want to make the best of their experience. The recent design simplification has only contributed to the practicality and efficiency of the site itself.
You can say that – as far as Streamate is concerned – high quality HD, lack of lag and clear image are a standard. Most HD streams are pretty much flawless. Although the site traffic is quite high compared to other similar sites (up to a couple of thousand performers at any given time!), we didn’t experience any major issues.
Speaking of performers, the aforementioned wide variety is a huge plus. The high number of performers online at once is due to them being located worldwide, so the number remains constant regardless of the time of day. There’s particular emphasis on English-speaking areas, though, as the majority comes from the UK and North America.
Not only does Streamate boast a selection of performers with different looks, personalities and ages, there’s also a number of niches to choose from. From amateurs to legit pornstars, from teens to GILFs, from skinny to chubby girls, plus male performers, different sections for other sexual orientations and much, much more. The diverse locations also allow for a large number of performers to be online at all times. The search and filtering options are well-designed and usually you’ll find what you’re looking for.
The emphasis is clearly put on amateur shows, however, as most of the performers fall into this category. A huge chunk of performers put on a show directly from their living rooms or bedrooms, although there are quite a few studio streams, especially from pornstars. The browsing and public chatting with the performers is free of charge.
The paying on is done after the first 30 seconds of private chat session, which you get for free. The charging is executed in such a way that your chat session won’t be interrupted or terminated due to the funds running out. The system does not require any additional reloading or credit to use the site once they get your credit card information; your card is charged based on the usage, and you can also set a personal maximum daily amount to prevent any uncontrolled spending.
The private chat session, in which others can participate if they want to, is the first of the paying options provided on Streamate. The other two are the exclusive chat, which is the most expensive option but provides a comfortable one-on-one experience, and the Gold Show, basically another version of the classic group cam show.
The performer initiates a Gold Show by stating the desired amount of money collected in a specified period of time (for example, $100 in 10 minutes). Once the goal is fulfilled, the show begins for everyone who pitched in. The cam show prices are rarely the same, while the tipping is stimulated in various ways depending on the performer – you can get their photos and videos, or even gain complete control of the show should you provide the highest tip. There is also a list of the top-3 tippers at the top of the chat box, so you can try to beat them and snatch the bonuses.
Performers usually state what they will do in the show, and will stick to it. At least four dozen users participate in a given cam show, so usually the performers neither have time nor the opportunity to interact with all other users and fulfil individual requests.
As already mentioned, the cam show prices on Streamate are not nearly the same and are clearly defined by the performers themselves. On average, you can get your exclusive chat session at $3.99 per minute ($2.99 per minute for ‘standard’ private chat). Otherwise, the prices of sessions range from $0.99 up to $9.99 per minute. Logically, the highest of prices are reserved for pornstars.
The interface itself, although well-conceived, does have certain issues – it appears rather non-transparent in terms of providing clear payment information. That, however, doesn’t make it different from other cam sites and is to some extent compensated by its efficiency, the user-friendly design, and the numerous features it offers.
All in all, Streamate is a superb-quality cam site that is equally suitable for more seasoned users and beginners alike. Due to the vast selection of prices, performers and options, it counts as an essential component in the overall cam site experience.
