  1. Hello! I would like to express my thanks and appreciation for your Twitch: TV app. I really enjoy using it to watch live-streaming on my big screen TV. However, I would like to share my opinion on how to improve the quality of streaming on your TV apps. I think there is more you could do to improve streaming performance and provide a more stable connection. Maybe you can do more research and testing to find new ways to optimize and improve your streaming experience. I believe you can continue to improve the quality of your app and I look…

  2. I love watching my favorite Twitch streamers through my TV app!However, I have noticed that sometimes the transmission quality can be a little low.I think that improving the streaming bandwidth and optimizing the codecs can help improve the transmission quality on my TV.It would be great if Twitch could provide a stream quality selection option so that we can choose the best quality for our internet speed.I'm sure Twitch will continue to improve their service for all of their viewers and I can't wait to see what they come up with next!

  3. I completely agree with you that this is quite an annoying behavior of the LG webOS app.It would be great if the app had the ability to customize how long a Twitch chat should remain open without being moved remotely.I can understand how this can break the UI if the chat stays open forever, so setting the fade time would be ideal.Let's hope the developers of the app take note of this and add such a setting in future updates.

  4. I know this is a tough topic but most streamers use third party services to allow emotes.. you need to address this on all platforms because anywhere besides PC / third party apps will suffer. This means that on smart TVs you get a subpar experience. Android gets SoundTV which is amazing, but Apple doesn't have a good twitch app at the moment by comparison. It's good for watching the stream, but you don't feel like you're part of the community which is something you preach to care about

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.…

  9. 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.

  10. The option to view chat on VODs has been removed from the Apple TV and Amazon Firestick apps. I watch VODs a lot and it’s frustrating to hear the streamers replying to messages in chat when I can’t even read what they are responding to. It makes for a frustrating viewing experience.

  11. The state of Twitch on the Apple TV is fundamentally unacceptable and, if they aren’t already, both companies should be pursuing a lawsuit against their own management for gross negligence and incompetence. The app is UNUSABLE.

    Fix the chatting. Fix the ghost notifications. Fix the UI popping in and out of view in a constant, never ending loop. Fix the scrubbing. Fix the emotes.

    Holy ******* **** this isn’t a joke - take all the comments here seriously and do something other than sit on your *** while this **** has been broken for WEEKS now. Not even one single…

  12. Your recent update to the TV apps seems to have removed the 'continue watching' section and also the ability to browse past a few days of past broadcasts from streamers. I would recommend bringing these back as for a lot of us we cannot watch live and so catch up on VODs and also like the ability to go back to video's that we have not completed yet. With the apps the way they are now I do not find them usable.

  13. On the latest version, you cannot gif rid of the bottom icons while viewing a stream in full screen mode (without chat), and the screen flickers as well.

  14. The new version of the Apple TV app is not at all user friendly. It lags, is difficult to navigate, and is not customized to me as a viewer the way the old version was. There is no option on my home page anymore for “recently viewed” VODs that I may want to continue watching. Instead now my home page is filled with suggested streamers I couldn’t care less about and I need to navigate all the way over to my followed streamers to get back to a VOD I was previously watching. Also there is no option as a…

  15. The new update - March 3 2023 - has so many downgrades! There are some issues that I was hoping to be addressed, but instead we got more problems.

    1) Not being able not see more than the top 25 Live Followed Channels is a big problem. There are a lot of new and growing streamers I follow, support and moderate that are getting zero visibility with this new update.

    2) Not being able to chat from the tv, and instead being sent to a QR code that connects to the mobile app stops the ability of people participating directly…

  16. Add back in the chat for VOD on apple TV! Horrible idea to remove it in the latest update, chat is the core reason why Twitch is appealing.

  17. The latest updated (3-2-2023) to the AppleTV only shows the top 25 streams we follow even when viewing the Following section of the app. So we are unable to see all the streamers we follow that are live with lower viewer counts which doesn’t seem fair, to those streamers with lower viewer counts, as they will not show up as being live unless specifically searching for them.

  19. It's pretty clear the current teams responsible for all of these app developments are failing miserably at their job. These apps have been broken for years. In the instance of AppleTV the new app updates did nothing to address the real issues people have been complaining about on this forum. I'm proposing a WILD idea of letting this incompetent department go, and outsourcing to an agency that's actually capable.

    The reality is this isn't difficult work, in fact it's VERY straight forward stuff.
    UX design is SIMPLE.
    Coding is SIMPLE.
    Adhering to device architecture is SIMPLE.
    Letting go of incompetent…

  20. Why remove any ability for users to chat directly via an AppleTV, and enforce QR codes on TV screen to be scanned just to “Join The Conversation” in chat on an entirely different device, and needing Twitch app to be installed to only open Chat-only Mode for same stream; when, chat window is already open and ready to be used on AppleTV via Twitch (tvOS) app.

    An AppleTV remote can already use Siri/buttons to talk/type; plus, an iPhone can also sync with an AppleTV to be used as remote control without having to even have Twitch (iOS) app open at…
