Autoplayed featured broadcasters is a waste of space for my Twitch use case
The featured broadcaster space takes up over half the available screen width on a 1920x1080 resolution homepage. I have never once wanted to watch whatever this video was, making it a waste of space for how I want to use Twitch. Every time I go to twitch.tv the first thing I have to do is wrestle with that video to make it stop.
When I visit the homepage I want to be greeted with content that's actually relevant to my interests. I want to catch up with the newest moments, posts and videos from my favorite games / people. Basically, I want to see more of the space used for Pulse related content, with some ability for discovery mixed in - in a non obtrusive, non autoplaying fashion.
