  1. Home tab should have my "Following" channels right on top instead of "Live Channels We Think You'll Like". Or at least make that configurable in settings.
    Having the "Following" as a separate tab is an annoying experience on TV.

  2. 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?

  3. Add the ability to "View all" videos from the videos section on a channel like it is for PC or Mobile on Samsung Twitch App. At the moment only the last 12 videos can be seen in the list and the other ones can't be reached at all. Waiting for a response. Thanks!

  4. Hello, I have a proposition for you! Apparently, in the TV app, the chat filtering for swear words, etc., is not located in the chat setting on TV!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  11. Currently, there is a BUG with Watch Parties in relation to the "streamer window" that moves above chat while the stream from Amazon is happening on the main part.

    Since about April 6th or so, I start my stream ("starting soon") in another category (as one can't as Watch Party - ahem ahem...) and the scene shows perfect. Any scene switch shows fine in any gaming category too.

    I then start the watch party and the show/movie themselves stream fine. However, MY scene, which moves above chat just the same as when someone's stream moves there during ads, is just…

    Hi,

    To clarify, you posted this under TV Apps; are you only noticing this behavior on the TV App, or is this behavior true for when viewing on web? Please let me know. Thanks.

  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. Streams are shown in random order and it's really hard to skim through pages and pages of streams just to find the one that is currently the most viewed. I would like to sort them by view count.

  16. so I have this problem for over 1 year and I'm sure it's not from my end. The thing is when a streamer that I watch (any of them) decides to end their stream and raid someone else, I can't follow the raid train neither on the TV app (its an LG SmartTV) nor on the FireStick TV app. It just stops and I am left on the streamer's recent broascasts page. I would love to use twitch on tv more but this experience is kind of disruptive as I like to leave it on while I do chores around…

  17. 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.

    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.

  18. Make live chat available when watching VOD on Samsung TV, that can be done when watching someone broadcasting in real time, but when it comes to the VOD, the chat is not available.

  19. 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 ****?

  20. A recent change for your TV apps (I've tested it on LG/WebOS and Apple TV) when a stream ends it goes to a splash screen showing the stream has ended.

    In a recent previous version it would return to the home page showing live streams you follow and recommended streams. Now I have to click out every time a stream ends to see that list.

    Maybe a "best of both worlds" in which the splash screen saying "This stream has ended" returns to the main list after 30 seconds or so?
