  1. The Samsung TV twitch application has been removed due to it not being official.

    Now thousands of people have to go out and buy a chromecast ect to watch twitch on there Samsung TV. Please make an official twitch app so these thousands of people can watch twitch without having to buy anything else.

    The main reason I bought my TV was because there was a twitch app.

  2. Dear twitch,

    “gamestreams” is a great app for LG smart tvs (webOS) that allows one to watch twitch streams directly on the tv without the need of using some other casting devices. Unfortunately after the API V3+5 change/shutdown the app suddenly stopped working. I’m sure there are lots of people watching twitch on LG tvs and we’d like to able to do so in the future. After reaching out to the developer of the gamestreams app i got the following answer from Reemet Paabo:

    “Yes Twitch.tv is closing down the V3 and V5 API endpoints that we are using and…

  4. The chat closes after a period of time if there is no remote movement, which is frustrating when sitting and watching. Maybe leave the chat open permanently or give a setting to make it disappear over a period of time

  5. Add function to login into your account on the app and availability to watch vods. Currently you can only watch live channels.

  8. I recently purchased the new chromecast with google tv, love it and love Twitch!

    The problem is that using the twitch app on my TV routinely "times out" and sends the tv to ambient mode which shows pictures and the weather. I haven't been able to figure out how long it takes to time out but sometimes it seems like less than 10 minutes other times it plays for hours ... Might be stream dependent, but I am not sure what that would have to do with it.

    I found some instructions on disabling the energy optimization I'm the chromecast…

  9. Could be a button on main window of stream (on mobile, like settings or clip button) or settings menu selection that creates popup menu. Opens a list of available smart TVs on current LAN that can accept the mobile request. Will open smart TV app, then open to specific stream.

  10. Make app available to Sky Q customers. I think this would open your fan base even more. Most good streaming apps becoming available on Sky Q

  12. Since there is no Twitch app for the most popular smart TVs, maybe a "Send to device" button like YT has would allow people to watch on their smart TV without having to download a questionable 3rd party workaround.

    I can finally watch OWL on my big screen, and I now watch LCS on YouTube instead of Twitch because of this very feature.

    I much prefer the social aspect of Twitch, but the lack of accessibility is profound.

  16. Similar to the Apple TV twitch app, bring functionality to interact with streamer chat via emoji or keyboard on the LG app

  17. Please add the ability to select from multiple accounts (similar to netflix profiles) when the twitch app is opened (android tv doesn't have this, at least, not sure about other tv apps). I share my television with family and it's a pain to log out and back in every time someone else uses the television.

    I will say the twitch.tv/activate system is superb but this feature I'm requesting would make things even easier!

  18. On PC, when you finish one VoD, it basically loads up another vod for you to watch. I would like to see that functionality on the twitch TV app, as I enjoy putting on streamers vods while I play a game, or when I lay down for bed, and most of the streamers I watch don't stream for more than 4 or 5 hours, the current TV app will basically shut off once the video ends.

  19. Not really a TV app but closest category I could find, I think an Alexa Video Skill would be great for twitch as I would love to be able to watch streams on my Echo Show, seems strange that this isn't already a thing considering that Twitch is owned by Amazon lol, obv would then be able to utilise features such as connected Echo devices for surround sound as well as the 3D Sound and Subwoofer products they also sell for this ecosystem

  20. I have a LG UH6100 smartv, but your application was not available. I'm a big fan of the platform, I would like to ask for this or if you have any plans to launch, since my TV has support for all applications!

    Thankful,
