tVOS 17.0 Twitch App VOD video goes black after 5 minutes of watching
The Twitch Apple TV app does not work on the new tvOS 17.0 OS just released. When watching a VOD the video will suddenly go all black but the sound will continue playing.
The Apple TV Twitch App is literally unusuable in this state. Please fix this.
This has gotten significantly worse recently.
Well given the news of layoffs I think we're all screwed.
I’m having this issue almost every minute or two.
Pls fix it soon
Response from Twitch Support regarding this issue:
“ I am sorry to hear about the issues you're having with your Apple TV.
Based on the information provided, it looks like this is currently a known issue that we're actively working to resolve as soon as possible. We are unable to provide an ETA for resolution, however we appreciate your patience in awaiting this fix.
Build 12.2.0 black screen is still there.
Yep can confirm still the same issues after update. Black screens that require pause / play to come back. Laggy streams that randomly fast forward to catch up to itself and immediately starts lagging again (Majorly on 1080p / 120). The only way to watch it is by setting it to 720p 60. Even with that, it works but its still a little jittery. How is this still broken?
It’s gotten worse. Not even 1 minute before giving a black screen.
Issue persists with new app update released in January 5th…. Possibly even worse!
Yep, and like others have experienced it’s not just vods, it happens during live streams. If I leave it on the black screen long enough the apple tv will go to sleep. sadge.
Don't think they are ever going to fix this. Seems like it's low priority.
how the **** has this been broke this long
It’s now doing it while I watch live streaming. I have to pause and unpause to watch. DURING LIVE!
January 2024 and it still hasn’t been fixed…..
It makes watching vods an aggravation. Pause/unpause on the black screen will show the picture again
This looks really pathetic, Twitch.
Given that Twitch are ignoring this issue, I would suggest reporting this directly to Apple and requesting they review the apps suitability to be on the Apple TV app store given its badly broken.
Additionally leaving a 1 star review on the app store may also be a means to draw attention to this issue given Twitch seem incapable of fixing it or communicating with their users.

If this keeps up, I'm going to Youtube, what are you going to do?
Screen goes black after few minutes. Annoying. Tried everything
