Way too much ads
We get to see the same ads every 10 mins ???? do you really imagine that people will stick to this platform with this kind of ad spamming ?
Most people use twitch hoping from channels to channels and we get to see the ads every single time. This is plain stupid.
I only have control over my ads when I want more ads than twitch does. Which would be equivalent to old network tv stations where they would fill the overnight hours with infomercials. Six straight hours full of slap chop, flex tape, and magic bullet. If I want to run a commercial break once an hour, which I would find a more reasonable rate, then I can't have that. It's 100% impossible.
Not to mention that anyone who's not an affiliate has zero control at all. Since they can't run ads in the first place.
the streamers have enough control over the ads, that there isn't much twitch can do. at this point it is the streamers just trying to earn enough money to have a living.
Over a year later and I can confirm that on some occasions, Twitch will play ads every 10 minutes. On very slow-paced games, this is actually a deal breaker.

i completely agree with people complaining about the over frequent adverts. i get that "this ad directly supports (insert streamer name).
i wouldn't mind one every hour or so or even at the beginning and end of the stream.
i now will aim to not watch twitch channels until i found a solution to stopping the ad spam.
unless i am subscribed to the channel.
what a shame, youtube will certainly monopolise on this.
Ad frequency is too high now, its not worth ANY of the content on twitch, you're honestly going to force me to download vods and play them on my computer, then you won't get ANY revenue from me.
i agreed to many ads. can't even watch small streamers with it... "oh it supports them" Get a Job.
