CHZZK (Korean치지직) is a video streaming service by Naver, launched in April 2024.[1][2] After Twitch announced the termination of business in Korea, CHZZK started operation.

Pre-launch information[edit]

Details emerged through broadcasts by internet broadcasters who had meetings with Naver, trademark information found by netizens in related internet communities, and press articles. As Twitch reduced the video quality to 720p and halted VOD playback, causing concerns among streamers in South Korea who were considering migrating to other platforms after Twitch terminated its services, many Twitch streamers reportedly had meetings with Naver.

According to internet broadcasters who attended the meetings, ChijiJik's UI and system are said to be quite similar to Twitch's. Features supported by Twitch such as VOD playback and clips are included, with plans for up to 4K streaming in addition to 1080p. There is a rechargeable sponsorship system integrated with Naver Pay, with the unit being 'cheese'.

According to information technology industry sources on December 8, 2023, Twitch held a business meeting with Naver the previous day to discuss transferring its streamers to Naver's upcoming gaming streaming platform, "CHZZK" scheduled for release on the 19th.

Beta testing[edit]

Timeline From December 5 to 8, internal testing was conducted through broadcasts of in-house League of Legends tournaments. Commentary was provided by Jung No-chul, Necklitt, and Kang Kwi. On December 6, an official announcement for recruiting beta testers was posted. The mobile app was renamed to 'CHZZK (치지직)' as the existing Naver gaming app incorporated streaming functionality.


  • During beta testing, streaming uses H.264 codec with an 8000 kbit/s bitrate.

  • mobile application offers a feature to zoom in on specific parts of the screen.
  • sponsorship currency, cheese (twitch bits), can be paid with Naver Pay or accumulated Naver Pay points.
