  1. I think that would be a good idea to reward a viewer after watching enough ads.
    I often leave a stream because there are too much ads and it's frustrating.

    So we could give for each viewer a "contribution wallet" that fills while watching ads, then after we reach a certain amount, we can sub on that specific channel using the time spent watching ads.

    No need to see a value like money/time generated, it could be a progress bar with a % and when we reach 100% we can "sub for free".

    For example, let's say I am watching…

  2. This is a huge issue. Ads severely limit how effective we can do our jobs as mods because we can’t hear or see the streamer in a lot of cases so we lack the ability to communicate, especially when it’s a large group of ads. So Twitch, please disable ads for channel mods.

  3. It would really cool to add a feature where a viewer can subscribe to a creator and get various benefits with one being an ad-free experience. And make it work properly. Otherwise what is the point of subscribing to our favorite creators?

  4. I found myself watching vods of one of my favorite streamers, but I left to watch it on youtube so that he could get ad revenue. There should be a way to monetize pre recorded content too with banner ads and possibly gifting bits and subs directly to a clip/ moment/ vod/ etc.

  5. Having an automatically added tag for any stream with pre-rolls currently disabled (through automatic ads or with the new automatic ads) would help drive discoverability towards those using this feature.

    I feel it would also encourage more streamers to use the ads appropriately during low activity moments or when they take a break from the stream, thus also increasing revenue.

    By having it as a tag that will be automatically added (and removed) it's easy to filter for streams that have the tag within a category. From conversations with my viewers, they would definitely be more willing to check out…

  6. Make it so Broadcasters can give Ads to certain roles and or Vice Versa. Like I can make it so Followers, Viewers and Regulars can get ads BUT I can set it as VIP, Mods and the Broadcaster of their own Stream wont get ads.

  7. I'm generally happy to tolerate ads to support the stream and platform, but sometimes ads come up that I never want to see again. Other advertising platforms provide a way for users to indicate that they do not like a particular ad, which prevents it from coming back up. I think this would provide value to advertisers, since it avoids repeatedly showing ads to unreceptive users; streamer s, since undesirable ads are less likely to drive users away from streams; and viewers who will on average see fewer irritating advertisements.

  8. why doesn't twitch implement some kinda program where twitch seeks out brand deals for streamers (creator decides what deals they want to do and can say no to a deal) and takes a cut from that instead of running the invasive ads. higher payout that way. obviously people gonna take those for big payouts too even though they could just go through their own manager for those. just a free deal on behalf of the platform. everyone is happy and gets paid.

  9. This is only directed at viewers on desktop, I would assume.

    Nevertheless, why not create some type of incentive for viewers to not use adblock or some other source? Main ideas that come to mind are either a small bits reward system like you had with "watching ads for bits" with somewhere along the lines of a monthly deposit. The only other thing I could think of to back this is some type of reduction in sub cost, even if this is minimal (I'd hope .50-$1 but that might be high hopes).

    I can't always sub, but I do keep…

  10. Please fix where ads play when you raid somebody right at the start it’s honestly pretty disrespectful from twitch to allow this to happen and destroy first impressions

  11. Use the Watch Party secondary player, to maintain a Stream while using the Main player to play Ads, while reducing main stream's audio.

    Common complaint for people is that Random ads can pop up and ruin the experience or have them miss out on something at the worst time such as a moment or a train or conversation.
    But if it's moved to the Top Right secondary player people can still not miss out on the stream while an Ad plays and the reduced Main Stream Audio would not anger advertisers as their video ad is still brought into Focus,…

  12. Since many distributors have sponsors, I think we should run ads from sponsors that the distributor has a contract with, not ads that Twitch has a contract with.

  13. *not sure the right category, so posting it here, this is a link between ads and tags

    Often creators do sponsored streams, perhaps its content from the twitch bounty board, or casino, slots, sponsored stream, a creator codes, etc.

    If we had the option to TRIGGER an automatic overlay by using an AD tag or check a box on our creator dashboard before going live if part of our content is sponsored.

    When we have AD breaks on our stream we get a prompt saying "Catch username right now after this ad break; stick around to support the stream!"

    If…

  14. Here's a few ideas:
    • Banner Ads - Delivered SPECIALLY on Live content and VOD. Shows a banner when the viewer joins and every 30 minutes up to 8 times.
    • Video Ads - Delivered ONLY in VODs, and only before playing out the VOD.
    • Intermission Ads - Delivered manually by the streamer by using a custom command, the ad takes over the player and puts the stream on a corner of the player (a little less of 1/4 of the player itself), playing non-repeated ads until the ad limit is reached, 10 minutes passes, or the streamer enters…

  16. Twitch always worked on the volontary participation of viewers to support streamers. Nowdays streamers are blackmailing viewers by the new trend which is "without ads i'll be not here streaming, so if you do not want ads: subscribe."

    I think to keep the spirit of Twitch, which is encouraging viewers to volontary supporte streamers and not forcing them, we should be able to turn ON or OFF the advertisings aggression for each stream. This way, each viewers can decide to support or not a stream.

    Imo, ads are the worst things you can experience on a plateform. Who like watching…

  17. I would like the distributor to notify me that an ad is playing.

    Sometimes I am talking to someone who is not subscribed, but the conversation is interrupted by an advertisement and I cannot get through.

  18. Nearly everyone that uses YouTube knows about YT Premium because it can appear as an ad in an ad break or when you open the app on mobile sometimes, yet almost NO ONE knows about Twitch Turbo in comparison which is nearly identical to YT Premium. I was wondering if you could advertise Twitch Turbo in one of the randomly selected ads and/or somewhere else on the site in a sidebar ad for example.

  19. When looking for new streamers, it's common to interact with the streamer and ask questions, especially before subscribing. It would be great if ads were delayed after a user asks a question in chat. I was recently watching a streamer with 200-300 viewers while actively engaging with his chat. I asked a question and then as soon as he began responding, was given four ads. Personally, I see value in mitigating this. Let me know if you agree!

  20. The Situation: Advertisements are inevitable. Revenue needs to be generated and if the consumer isn't paying out of their own pocket then someone else must. So advertisers pay money for the potential to attract customers. Stream display ads do not demand the viewers attention so they will never generate the same revenue for advertisers, meaning either more volume or that they will be combined with the ads we already hate.The Feature: Allow the viewer to choose what type of advertisements they receive, with parameters such as whether it is a followed stream, new(to the viewer) stream, and/or a specific game.
