  1. New App video buffers and audio lags on wifi. Sometimes it lags on ethernet, wired connection. I am using a Apple TV 4K (1st generation). I am on the current tvOS which is 17.5.1. Never had this problem until now.

  2. Apple TV app is so busted

    Ever since they updated the Apple TV app a few months back, it is completely broken. Most streams turn black constantly and you can’t see anything. It happens every 30 seconds. The only way to fix it is to reload the stream, play/pause, or wait another 30 seconds and hope it resolves.

    On top of this, the seek bar is buggy as heck and sometimes doesn’t even disappear. Pressing the menu button doesn’t hide the seek bar either. It closes the stream.

    There is no longer any chat on VODs and you can’t chat…

  3. The current behavior when pressing back during playback is bad. It just closes the content immediately, regardless of whether the player overlay is visible or not.

    For usability to prevent accidentally closing the content, during playback the stream/VoD should only be closed when pressing back twice in a row, so:
    - If playback overlay is visible, pressing back once should hide the overlay, pressing back again should close content. This is what the native AppleTV+ app does.
    - If playback overlay is hidden, pressing back once should show the overlay, pressing back again should close content

    The current behavior is…

  5. The Apple TV app does not work on tvOS 17.0 recently released. When watching a VOD, the video will suddenly go all black but the sound will continue playing. Momentarily pausing playback briefly gets rid of the black screen. The issue will return. Restarting Apple TV, TV, or the app does not fix the issue.

    Currently, the Apple TV app’s use is unbearable when it comes with watching VODs.

    Please address this.

  8. Apple TV has voice controls where you can say to Siri to play/pause or rewind/ fast forward “x” amount of time, if I say these controls to Siri whilst watching twitch VODs Siri just says there’s nothing playing I would be great if this was a feature!

  9. Please work on the apple tv app. I'm begging you! I want to be able to view stuff with filters other than just language. When I go to a category like "just chatting" I have no idea how you are organizing the content I see. And "just chatting" is pretty broad, couldn't there be additional filters or tags within that category?

  10. Look. It’s 2023. Why the heck do we not have captions on the AppleTV app?

    I have to stream from my phone, which is annoying, and if I’m not home, no one else can do it.

    Support closed captions on Apple TV. Okay?

  11. Dark blue usernames in chat can't be read unless you go really close to your TV. Maybe a light mode would fix the problem. I don't know. If not, then Twitch needs to get rid of dark blue usernames. Light blue is easily readable.

  12. I just bought an Apple TV in May 2023 and was excited to install Twitch on it. However I am not happy with it. Half the channels that I am subscribed to do not show up in my "Offline followed channels" list. I have to search for them by name! This is silly. I have to go back to casting Twitch from my phone.

  13. Stop sucking. Seriously, how can you possibly make this garbage app worse on every single iteration?!?! The fact that you couldn't save your search tags and had to enter "english" dozens of times a night has now been replaced with not being able to filter at all. And not only that, you can't even SEE the language tag. It's worthless. Don't even get me started on removing the chat feature. I guess I won't be watching Twitch as much any more.

  14. The Apple TV app is now nearly useless because everything is sorted by recommendations instead of viewers, and there’s no way to change it like you can on other platforms. Until Twitch is able to make its recommendations actually be decent, change the default sort back to sorting by viewers.

    Ana responded

    Thank you for your report. We realize the recent experience with different apps, including Apple TV might be frustrating, and we do apologize for that. An underlying change in the technology used to power the Twitch TV application on Apple TV, Fire TV, Android TV, PS4, PS5, Xbox and Xbox Series X/S devices required us to rewrite those applications, resulting in reduced functionality and features. While our teams work toward improving the experience in the coming months, please continue sharing your feedback with us. Thanks for your understanding and patience.

  15. It's unwatchable. Audio skips constantly. Occasionally, it cleans itself up, but not always. I have had to use airplay from my laptop to mod. This is insane! zYou literally broke the app! What the ****?

  16. Why did this get removed in the latest update? It helped me figure out if I wanted to watch twitch or not.

  17. Right now, if you want to see the chat for a stream, it has to be to the side of the stream. It looks ugly and creates black bars.

    Let us have the chat in a small box in a corner. Let us control the opacity of the background, the size and position of the box, as well as letting us switch back to the current one.

    SoundTV on android tv does this amazingly well and rather than hiding the chat like I do on appleTV I get to show it and enjoy it without it ruining the stream.

  18. The new update is soo laggy and glitchy. You can’t even scroll through the streams correctly without it stuttering or freezing.

    The live followed streamers only show so many of your creators, and if you select see more, it takes you to the “following” page where you still don’t see more just what you saw before 😂😂 so I’ve had to manually search for smaller streamers that I know is live based on the mobile app.

    It’s so troublesome to find new VOD content.

    And also, the audio freezes/stutters every 20-30 seconds and sometimes even worse than that. It gets.…

  20. After the most recent Twitch app update/redesign for Apple TV, Top Clips is now missing when going into any categories. For example, previously before the most recent update/redesign, one could go into Just Chatting, and at the bottom would be a row of Top Clips within that category. This made finding new streamers and keeping up with the latest news/drama/etc. much easier and more interesting. Please add it back!

    Also, the new design looks great! Keep up the awesome work.
