Channel Analytics API
There needs to be an API that allows for the return of channal analytics.
This would have the reqiured query parameters of: broadcaster_id
Only stating the broadcaster_id could return the following results:
- Average viewers
- Total views
- Average new followers per stream
- Total followers
- Average subscribers per stream
- Total subscribers
- Average minutes watched per stream
- Total minutes watched
It could also return:
- Best performing catagories
- Best performing tags
There would idealy also be some optional query parameters: start-date, end-date, time.
Adding the optional query parameters would also add the result:
- Start date
- End date

With analytics already available to game and extension developers, it seems like a major shortcoming that channel analytics aren't available. Just providing a link to download the CSV (like the game and extension analytics endpoints do) would go a long way here, since the only way to get this data currently it to manually download that file through the dashboard.
