Urgently Fix the Roku App
The App has been buggy since release and far inferior to it's predecessor the unofficial app.
The issues STILL current:
Even when logged in, followed streams are NOT showing at all.
Online streams are not showing up in the list of channels.
Video quality still does NOT have manual selector (this is critical with Australian internet).
The app crashes frequently.
The interface is horrid.
I too would pay for a twitch app (although we shouldn't have to). I have various devices in different rooms of my house and the Roku is the only device that doesn't have a twitch app anymore. I was using the unsupported one which at least allowed me to watch streams but it no longer loads as of a month ago.
It would be awesome if roku could get a working twitch app. At this point, I would pay money for it - ad supported or not. I can't switch the entire house to fire tv/stick/cube right now but watching twitch on my tv is really important.
How about we first get an option to stream on Roku first, then improve it. What a joke Amazon/twitch.
Still a horrid interface and buggy as heck.

This problem is still occurring today. I believe I'm seeing through assorted forums that Twitch channels that use 60 FPS are the ones that hang at 99%.
Still an issue, but if it helps anyone else I got a stream to work after hitting back and reloading about 20 times. Unacceptable.
2018 and still an issue.
Why is this still an issue? If I'm lucky, 1 out of every 5 streams load, the others get stuck at 99%. That's one out of 5 subscriptions I'm paying for and can't watch the channel! When I stop subscribing, it's going to hurt the streamer more than it will hurt Twitch, which is the only reason I haven't unsubscribed already, but this is ridiculous! I've sent multiple messages to @TwitchSupport on Twitter, I've seen hundreds of posts on Reddit and this is still an issue. I just don't understand. How about you put the "Beta" site on hold and fix the current, long-standing issues?!?! FFS!
Fuck the official app commented
All streams stuck at 99% for months. Fuck the official app it sucks ass! Fucking useless!

Please fix the app, it works for me but needs quality option, see chat, ordering of streams needs to be by viewer count, etc.
Today, none of my streams have sound. TV is not muted, we use TV speakers. Sound at normal volume. We hear the sound from the Roku when we pick the channel, etc. Tried many streams, but NONE HAVE SOUND.

Just bought a roku TV so I could watch all my apps/channels in one place and everything works fine except twitch. I can't watch streams, they go to 99% then never load. So disappointing. :(((((
Streams stall at 99% on my roku tv... it has been this way for months now.. seems like many others have this issue too. :)

I see that they STILL have not fixed this app. Mine stalls at 99% and when it does load the audio is out of sync. You would think a company owned by a billion dollar corporation would fix this asap.
I was using the amazon based app for streaming. That app has full functionality. The Roku app doesn't. Please update the Roku app to match the Amazon app as much as possible.
Stalls at 99% constantly as well. Poor video quality and audio desync when something does load. Please fix this Roku app!
Stalls at 99% constantly and has horrendous audio desync.
