  2. Please stop background video playback on android tv and appletv. It’s just annoying and uses up network bandwidth. Do not start playing back video until I push the start button.

  4. The idea to remove pre-roll ads at the beginning of a raid was marked as completed and appears to be working on desktop, but I'm still getting ads immediately upon raids on the tvOS app.

    This is incredibly frustrating as I am forced to miss the streamer's reaction from the raid.

  5. I'm kind of surprised this isn't possible on Twitch's TV apps. The search function even says "find your favorite stream, category, or tag", but it doesn't search for tags at all. If I search "speedrun" for example, I can find channels or stream titles that literally contain the word "speedrun", but not the speedrun tag. For that matter, I'd like to be able to follow a tag in the same way I can follow a game category, but I suppose that's out of the scope of this request.

  7. Hey, my idea is for the twitch app to be on all smart TVs as YouTube is already on them so it would help people watch twitch on the TV (virgin media)

  10. Even I watch a stream I can't see how many and reedem channel points on Fire TV app.
    It can be helpful integrate the button as for pc/ios app to reedem directly on the tv app.

  11. I recently purchased the new chromecast with google tv, love it and love Twitch!

    The problem is that using the twitch app on my TV routinely "times out" and sends the tv to ambient mode which shows pictures and the weather. I haven't been able to figure out how long it takes to time out but sometimes it seems like less than 10 minutes other times it plays for hours ... Might be stream dependent, but I am not sure what that would have to do with it.

    I found some instructions on disabling the energy optimization I'm the chromecast…

  13. The chat closes after a period of time if there is no remote movement, which is frustrating when sitting and watching. Maybe leave the chat open permanently or give a setting to make it disappear over a period of time

  15. On PC, when you finish one VoD, it basically loads up another vod for you to watch. I would like to see that functionality on the twitch TV app, as I enjoy putting on streamers vods while I play a game, or when I lay down for bed, and most of the streamers I watch don't stream for more than 4 or 5 hours, the current TV app will basically shut off once the video ends.

  16. "Guys, you should follow Emma , seriously! She is an amazing music streamer."

    When streamer Dan said this, I wanted to be able to do these things in this order:

    1) figure out who this "Emma" was that he was talking about (a mod's !so shoutout helped here)

    2) easily get to Emma's channel to follow her

    3) come right back and continue watching Dan

    4) be able to check out Emma in more depth later (this is already easy, once I'm following Emma)

    Now, the feature request(s).

    SCENARIO A: (less work to implement, but also less intuitive and less…

  17. Transparent view of chat on the web browser/AppleTv etc. similarly to the mobile version. Lastly, if something could tell if you are watching on appletv, roku, firetv and it automatically asks if you want to just view chat from your smartphone.

  18. Currently, in the AndroidTV Twitch-App, you can only move through a VOD by 10 second-steps, which can be really annoying, for example, if you try to skip the first 2 hours of a VOD.
    I would greatly appreciate an option to put in a time to jump to inside a VOD, so you don't have to click forward a few hundred times anymore.

  19. I'd like an option so you can cast twitch to your Chromecast or whatever device you use with the chat on the side, like the theater mode we have on browser/app.

  20. It would be nice twitch to add a "cast to" feature similar to you tube where to be able to share the stream on tv.
