Fix the Ads for Bits
I love the idea for supporting streamers with bits but frankly I don't have the money to spend on bits, so that's why I rely on the free bits from ads, but one time after watching an ad it says "Try again later" under the Watch Ad button. At first I thought "Ok. I'll just watch more tomorrow" but it still said "Try again later" and it has been like that for months so I gave up checking at this point. If you could fix this or at least ease on the time you need to wait between ads. Maybe like one or two ads a week and these ads can stack, (for example if I don't watch my two ads for one week I can watch 4 ads next week and if I don't watch those 4 ads, next week I can watch 6 ads, and so on.)
Of course the "two ads per week" is just yet another suggestion, you can tailor it to however you feel fit. I just at least want a way of knowing "Hey! I watched all my ads. I can wait until _______ to watch another one." instead of relying on what feels like random luck to watch another ad.
Their are ads, one of my friends just joined Twitch and is seeing 4 to 5 a day.. Twitch's algorithm in the Twitch app looks at your viewing habits and how often your active and then looks too see if your reliably watching adds everyday.. So they are actually profiling you and then if your not what they want will turn off access to watch ads for bits. Usually when they turn you off they will not turn your account back on. This is done automatically through the app and not by any group or person.
No ads to watch since January... tired of patiently waiting. I figured the "slow months" after Christmas where advertisers dont want to pay for as many ads surely has passed by now.
Ads for bits is the only way for some people to show their support to streamers using bits. Please, make it work.
bits for ads is us only and even for them it has become a thing of past, most can't watch ads for bits now. Besides ads for bits gives very tiny rewards, so I don't know. Twitch needs to fix pre rolls I guess.
Wow, this has been frustrating for me. The past several months I too have not been able to watch ads for bits. This sucks as this is my way to supporting various streamers besides just watching their stream.
I haven't watched ads in a year, I used to, but then the option wasn't available to me anymore. My boyfriend lives in the same area, and he can watch ads. That's so unfair
i also have the same problem and its not working anymore for me so twitch please open it for us at least we are watching ads for you and getting you money and getting us bits so please fix it for me
i've been able to watch ads for bits once, then never again. please fix it, i would like to support streamers the best i can, and i will watch and interact with many ads if it helps them. Seems to have been an ongoing problem for awhile so i don't expect it to be addressed anytime soon, but it would be nice!
Have also had this problem. Had ads for bits work for a long time, then suddenly it stopped working for over 2 months, if not much longer by now. I am American, so no, being somewhere other than America has nothing to do with it. I don't know how you would identify what is considered "abuse" of this feature, but restricting it for some people just because this is the only way they can get bits, at least currently, is extremely stupid and inconsiderate of Twitch. I'm putting my 2 cents in, but I assume Twitch doesn't actually look here and they don't give a **** about users' opinions anyway.
Haven't been able to watch an ad for bits in over a year now, fix it...!
fix it, AGAIN
i haven't gotten an ad in literally 6 months, they need to fix their **** asap
twich plz fix the ads you guys had fix it then it went back to the thing we both where happy customer and you guys plz been maybe 1 month
SORT IT OUT
Experience the same problem which is greyed out and the watch ad don't get visible.
Please make it available in other countries. Twitch you are going to make more revenues from the free service.
Consider to launch in other countries not just US.
YEP this is broken I haven't been able to watch an ad for weeks.
The answer is simple, the ads are only for a desired demographic of Twitch, you will find American users will have access to more ads than Europeans.
It is rather rubbish, and to be bluntly honest Twitch hasn't really went out to seek for European ads, the only time they do work is when an American brand has allowed global usage.
There is an alternative to join their Research Group, that allows users to do surveys for bits, again these a limited and mostly favour American users.
Again it is silly with Europe or Asia having a larger commercial base than North America, you would think they would want to capitalise on it. Nope.
twitch can you fix the bits try again later thx
Yeah its weird I have had twitch for 6+ month and it has always said "try again later".
