  1. I think it could be really helpful to sort the Followed Channels by Recently Viewed instead of Date Followed, Old to New. Right not we have to scroll all the way to the end, past many creators who we infrequently watch. This would make the app much easier to use, especially when going to find VODs. Thanks!

  2. 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.

  4. Why did you get rid of chat for vods with the newest update for tv and PlayStation apps. Why not just give an option, don’t just take away. It makes some of the streams I watch pointless now as the chat interaction with it gives it its identity. What a STUPID decision.

  6. Can you roll the Fire TV app back to the old UI please? Selecting a followed channel should not default to the Unfollow button & the ability to scroll back through the entire catalogue of VoD contact needs to be reinstated. If I'm a few weeks behind on a streamed series like Critical Role, I need to be able to get to where I left off (ike I used to be able to do), but now anything more than a few weeks old is inaccessible without going through search, which only brings up some of the things I search for…

  7. Hey,
    It would be really great to have the chapter Selection Feature for VODs on the Twitch TV Apps. This will be very useful for rewatching long VODs of past streams on TVs an find the games on those VODs that I want to watch.
    This feature is already available on the web so please bring it also to TVs.

  8. 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?

  9. I have no clue why you decided to remove it in the first place. What's the point of watching a VoD when the chatroom is over 1/3 of the Twitch experience!?

  10. 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.…

  11. 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.

  12. On the WebOS app for LG TV, the back button on my TV remote should make the overlay disappear rather than bringing me back to the previous screen.

    It should only bring me back to the previous screen if the overlay is not being displayed.

    Disappointed to not see this UI function not implemented in v11 pushed out 9/05/2022.

  15. I have several suggestions for the app:

    1. They should show more followed users who are online broadcasting, since only 10 or 15 appear and the other online users with fewer viewers are not shown, only those with the most appear, the rest have to be searched manually.

    2. Allow replays and clips to be viewed from channels and save progress.

    3. That the order in which the lists appear down can be modified or that after showing those followed online, the next one shows the categories.

    4. That the framerate for streams that have 60fps be fixed, at least to fix the image…

  17. Hello,

    the twitch chat (and particularly the big purple "Sign in to chat / chat" button) is dangerous to all OLED TV, because it is basically static. It would be really nice to have a option to circumvent this. I see multiple solution for this:

    • Make an option to regularly change the twitch chat side

    • Option to remove the big, birght purple buttons

    • Chat as a transparent overlay over the stream (with option to change sides)

    Really hope that there will be an option for this. Hate to use third-party twitch apps to prevent screen burn.

  20. 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.

    In…
