  2. The "Followed Games" section row, keeps disappeared when I try to navigate to that row in the Nvidia shield TV Twitch app, and then it is only "Live channels" and "Followed channels" left on that screen.

    This is annoying me to no end. Please fix?

  3. Can log into the application on the TV, can see previews of what is happening on the stream, but when I go to watch it it gives me the “Bug - Oh bummer… an error occurred while playing this content” message. It just started happening today. I have not done any new updates, haven’t changed wifi, didn’t disconnect wifi at all when it started happening. I was watching a stream and just went into another one and this pops up no matter what I do.

    I have tried shutting off my tv and unplugging it for an extended period. I…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. I find the new apple tv app very good, but now when I choose a live stream, the live options do not disappear and it stays in a constant loop, it never disappears. It is very annoying, especially if you only want to watch the stream in full screen.

    I hope you can fix it as soon as possible. Thanks for everything!

  7. While watching certain streamers on my TV app the screen will blink/flash a black screen almost every 2 seconds. I suggest you fix this quick as it will cause seizures. I don’t think you guys would like a lawsuit from me cause you hurt me or a loved one that has issues with situations like this. You’re lucky it hasn’t caused a problem already. Fix it , or I’ll be rich.

  8. The Apple TV app often gets left behind, and one of these ways that it's been forgotten about is in the animated emotes department. They still don't animate when you have chat on screen. It would be really nice if someone could look over the Apple TV app and get it back in line with the rest of Twitch's apps!

  9. When watching a stream on Apple 4k tvOS, the stream's window appears to "Shake" horizontally really badly. The chat window on the right is perfectly fine, so it doesn't seem like its a tv issue.

    It seems to be worse on some streams more than others. But I do not see the shaking on any other platforms.

    Some streams shake so badly that I just cannot watch it.

  11. I love the fact my LG smartv got your app, but i can't login my account on it, so when i watch my favored streamers by him i dont get stuff like channel points or can interact in chat in any form... It's sad because watching twitch on TV has became more fun than on PC to me, so... this is my feedback.

  12. I follow a lot of channels, but a majority of the time, I'm looking for one game in particular to watch. It'd be nice to be able to filter my Live page (https://www.twitch.tv/directory/following/live) by game.

  13. on Fire TV, the boundaries of the screen don't adjust correctly like other apps do. Because of this there is a portion of the video that is off screen, some TV's have options to adjust the edge scanning, but not all do and it can be annoying to change it every time just to watch twitch.

  15. Hi, i'd really love if you could release the Twitch app for the Samsung Series 55 Smart TV.

    Ever since the old unofficial app got removed a few years back i've checked to see if the app was available for my Samsung Series 55 Smart TV every few months, but to this day it doesn't appear when i search for Twitch on the app store.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Best regards, ghost97915

  16. It was very popular in recent years and I would like to propose other people's idea again. In Echo devices (those with Alexa integrated), especially the Echo show category, they have had the peculiarity of having video streaming applications with them. For example Prime Video and Netflix, given that Twitch is "acquired" by Amazon, the Twitch application for Echo show devices would also be useful. Or at least make it possible to access via the site since Amazon silk (browser within Echo show devices) is not among the browsers supported by Twitch. I ask for an opinion on this as…

  18. 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…

  19. For the last week or so I keep getting the “oh bummer” message while watching a stream. Only way to get it working again is to close the app and open it.

  20. Better integration of Twitch and easier/more reliable use of Twitch via Alexa/Echo devices and Fire TV... I should be able to easily change channels and watch twitch streams via Echo Show 8/10/5 as well as stream Twitch audio to an Echo Studio Stereo Pair... the Echo skill is unreliable at best, and makes it difficult to change between streamers... and the Fire TV skill does not support raids and just ends the channel...
