Use IPv6 for both your homepage and the stream
At the moment, both the Twitch homepage and the actual streaming servers are only reachable over the old IPv4. As there already are providers which only connect their users with DualStack-Lite (this means, IPv6 native and IPv4 over a relatively slow tunnel protocol), it would be good for bandwith-expensive websites like twitch to be reachable over IPv6 - for both the homepage and the streaming servers.
It's 2021 already. Any uptdate?
It's 2021 already
End of 2020 and Germany still don't get IPv6 connectivity to Twitch.
Often i got big problems watching twitch or getting on amazon.
So wtf get it done already...
However still no traffic with a French ISP : https://as24904.kwaoo.net/as-stats/history.php?as=46489&peerusage=0&v=4
Maybe it will happen soon!
It's 2020. Please.
The end of 2019 is approaching, but it haven't responded yet ...
2019 year and it's still not implemented,

2018 year and it's still not implemented, like WTF?!
I have some freinds who really want to stream, however they are on the new generation Ipv6 connection.
I learned recently that twitch does NOT allow users to stream on IPV6 Because the homepage and the streaming servers are on IPV4, old generation network connectivity.
If it was me, and I didn't bother to stream, then fine, IPV4 is good enough on a minimal level. But for me, I care about my network connectivity, esp when using IPV6, I love that IPV6 is encrypted at the IP level, making them more secure than IPV4, which still is plaqued at sniffling and application layer exploits.
At the moment, the internet is needing of updating, twitch is still not updated to IPV6, a stronger, faster, and better connection.
NOT TO MENTION, Your 1.7 million broadcasters will be loads better, since IPV6 PEERING helps all of your streamers streaming better quality.
Please do this!
it's time for IPV6

It's time to move forward, Twitch ;)

Yes I definitely recommend adding IPv6, IPv6 peering is often MUCH better than ipv4, it will therefore increase the streaming quality for millions of users that already have IPv6 - not to mention those that are on slow tunnel protocols...
