LG smart tv (webOS) - login and vod availability
Add function to login into your account on the app and availability to watch vods. Currently you can only watch live channels.
Update! We have lived to see the day that vods, clips and highlights are finally available on the app.
I don’t know how long it’s been available but just checked out of curiosity, and passing the info to anyone who also wasn’t aware.
So, year and a half later, how's that fix coming along Twitch? What fix you say? You don't give a $hit you say? Ah, alright.
Also for the chat constantly dimming/going off issue, don't even dare try and say anything about preventing "screen burn in" because I can't honestly believe anyone would be dumb enough to buy that. Especially when the chat, a DYNAMICALLY CHANGING picture, is right next to any and every twitch overlay which is STATIC. You'd have to basically black out the entire twitch app every few mins if your true concern was burn-in.
add VOD please!!
Having the ability to watch vods when watching twitch on a smart tv should make more people watch twitch on their TVs
WE WANT VOD!!
Implement this. To echo everyone else's comments: It is unacceptable that the VOD functionality is not available, and that the experience is not standardized across all platforms/devices.
Please add this.
I don’t understand how this still hasn’t been added. Being able to watch vods is a very basic core functionality. Up your game Twitch.
I am unsubscribing until you add VOD playback and simple access to the channels I follow.
Please add this! is annoying to not be able to watch previous broadcast
I lost hope and just bought a 4k fire tv stick with adfree twitch and adfree youtube (SmartTubeNext) and I love the smaller remote (the new one with netflix, prime and disney+ button)! The android Plex app also has so much more functionality compared to the webos app
This version of Twitch is awful.. no settings, no pause, no feedback button, like wth am i supposed to do? hope that twitch giv:es me 1080p today :c
Can't believe there is no VOD option on the LG Smart TV app. Really disappointing (especially for those of us who subscribe to channels for the ability to watch the VODs in the first place!).
Just bought a new LG smart TV and I am shocked to find out I cannot play VODs from the twitch app. This seems like a basic function of the app that is desperately needed.
Why aren’t vods available? This is seriously stupid. Thank god I have ways to cast to the TV but it’s just a chore.
Kinda absurd that VODs don’t work on the LG App. This can’t be difficult to implement, and it’s an obvious feature. Pretty disappointing.
So twitch doesnt give a s***, huh?
Love using the webOS app, but not having VOD support (like on PS4) is unfortunate. Would love to see an update !
Beyond surprised that this is still an issue after all these years... Great I can have the app, great I can sign-in now with the activate, but who cares if I cannot do VOD. I work opposite hours of the shows I like to watch, and being able to watch on my TV would be great. I hate streaming through my phone app to my TV as it introduces artifacts and occasional audio/video stutter glitches.
It’s absolutely ridiculous that I can’t watch yesterday’s stream from my favourite streamers? This is an app for tv! Most adults don’t have the option to get their tv to themselves right when streams are happening live so need to watch after it has ended...how is this not possible?? It’s crazy!
