  1. Using the unofficial Twitch apps that existed previously on tvOS, it was extremely easy to navigate stream recordings that are often 5-6 hours long. Since the official Twitch app debuted, all the third-party apps have ceased development, so we're stuck with the bad video controls of the official app. This could be solved by using the standard tvOS video control APIs that almost every other app uses. Examples:

    1. While watching a long Overwatch stream, when the streamer was queuing for a match, I could easily tap the right edge of the trackpad to jump forward in small increments, until I…

  3. Dear twitch,

    “gamestreams” is a great app for LG smart tvs (webOS) that allows one to watch twitch streams directly on the tv without the need of using some other casting devices. Unfortunately after the API V3+5 change/shutdown the app suddenly stopped working. I’m sure there are lots of people watching twitch on LG tvs and we’d like to able to do so in the future. After reaching out to the developer of the gamestreams app i got the following answer from Reemet Paabo:

    “Yes Twitch.tv is closing down the V3 and V5 API endpoints that we are using and…

  4. When looking at chat on my TV the dark names can be very difficult to read on the dark background. Having the dark user names outlined with a light color would make them readable from a distance.

  5. Pretty severe bug, when I watch a live stream and a streamer runs an ad, after the ad is done the stream lags horribly. I counted 1 frame per 4 seconds until the stream freezes and I have to restart the stream.
    Please fix this fast!

  7. Your app works well on most devices but is awful on the amazon firestick. Streams constantly freezing and actually results in the whole firestick freezing. Can the app please be looked at, seems strange that the only device struggles to work on is your own.

  12. I want to be able to listen to streams using set of powerfull voice commands on my Google Home Mini or Nest plus Amazon Echo devices with Alexa.

    On top of that i wanna mannage my stream using voice commands to; place markers, host n raid channels, cast votes, mute chat, make a clip, kick viewers even.

    Thirdly I wanna have ability to cast chat audibly using TTS sapi5 voices to the device, and create exceptions and replacment phrase lexicon to what is being read. Text to speach chat would be getting simultaniously played along with a streams audio.

  14. A large house with 15 streamers. They all compete for the most growth within a specific time frame (say 3-6 months), but they are allowed to prank each other, without physical harm to others or hardware, in means of sabotaging others so they can grow more. The top 3 highest growth streamers make it on to the next "season". It would create a lot of competition and drama, and having streamers do it, means that they would be posting constantly, updating their audiences.

  16. 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.

  18. (translated from German by DeepL)

    Hello, Twitch,

    since the release of your new Twitch app for AppleTV I have the following criticisms:

    Home page:
    - Where can I set "my language" (german) so that under "Channels in my language" I am no longer shown ALL international channels with ALL languages?

    Live streams:
    - There is no display of how long the current stream has been running (uptime).

    Stream recordings ("Earlier broadcasts"):
    - The date from when the stream or clip is from is missing - both in the thumbnails and in the enlarged view.
    - The rewind and fast forward…

  19. It has the same issues as in 2016.
    Please fix this.
    1080p stutters.
    Some streams just visually freezes for a second now and then.
    Some people dont have the NEWEST tv so you cant use the smarttv to get the app. Please Twitch, fix this!

  20. Not really a TV app but closest category I could find, I think an Alexa Video Skill would be great for twitch as I would love to be able to watch streams on my Echo Show, seems strange that this isn't already a thing considering that Twitch is owned by Amazon lol, obv would then be able to utilise features such as connected Echo devices for surround sound as well as the 3D Sound and Subwoofer products they also sell for this ecosystem
