Stop with the Ads, Bring back Prime users being Ad free!!!
Since this change I've been driven further and further away from Twitch.tv as a platform. I find it ridiculous that the only way to not have to see this annoying Ad spam is by using my ONE prime sub or just not watching content on Twitch.tv. There is a major problem with that approach, and until something changes (and I'm certain thousands of others would agree here), I will no longer be using this platform for my viewing pleasure.I hope you guys get this figured out and find a better solution soon, like putting the Ads responsibility back on individual streamers, since that empowers THEM to generate revenue for themselves, as opposed to the obviously fake cop-out of "this ad supports -insert random streamer here- " since that just seems so disingenuous.
So fu***** annoyed by these adds interrupt when your a paying prime member.
Will stop pay for this service as long this adds continue to spam us paying customer.
And as usual Amazon doesn't care about what we think and just ignore to answer.
Turn off all reclam/advertisement for Prime subscribers. Because why we must pay for Prime and LOOK reclam/advertisement about Prime?
If I am a Amazon prime member, an ad free version of twitch should be given, already paying $$$ for Amazon prime, so on twitch I should not have to pay more money per channel for and ad free experience
Time for this to happen. We already pay Amazon for Prime and buy products there, ads are a slap in the face considering they raised rates. Also, you should get more free subscriptions linked to your Amazon Prime account on Twitch (between 5 and 10) and if you spend X amount of money a month, that number should increase based on your spending.
literally as the title says. sometimes i get 4-6 ads in a row which is horrendous for a prime user. i understand if ads should still be a thing for prime subscribers, but certainly not that much given we pay for a premium experience. reduce the amount and frequencey or better yet, scrap ads for prime subscribers
i have already dropped at least a dozen streamers because of ads.the other thing is prime subs get toooo many ads as well,you would think twitch would support a streamer that most people sub with prime.i pay 147.00 a year for prime but soon no more,tired of the bs with all the ads
update:i just clicked on one of my fave streamers and right off the bat i get hit with 5 fing adds before i could say hello.needless to say i stopped watching and logged out,,this is total *********,,fix this **** twitch enough is enough!!!
Cant wait til Youtube eats this garbage ap alive.
Do note that, Yes ad's are super annoying but for smaller streamers that can't get emotes and what not, people arn't going to just sub on them when they can sub to someone that has cool emotes and fancy things, it's sadly the only way for small streamers to even get close to a way to make money on stream, i think that they should do the ads that slowly zoom out the screen and have a small banner that doesn't bother the streamer or stream viewers and still have a ad it's still annoying but people on twitch that are tiny can still make a tiny bit of income this way and people will be more happy
this is the MAIN reason ive streamed on YT that and the little kids that kuss you out i left this platform in 18 and went to YT well now iam back and ill give it a second shot! and the ADS have got to go iam a prime Twitch member and i dont get anything for free
I have never been more angry about implementation of Ads on a platform, even traditional TV. I barely watch any of my favorite streams anymore entirely due to twitch implementation and insane disruption caused by them. It feels intentionally malicious it is so badly done. I pull up a stream intending to watch and immediately quit when force fed long ads.
I have paid for a sub so I don't have to watch ads, but now you've forced them on me. I will no longer be subbing so you have cost the streamer, and yourself, money.
I DESPISE being Prime & getting an ad right at the beginning of clicking into a stream & then again mid-way thru a stream. 90% if the time I just close out when an ad comes up. No use watching stream if I get ads I don't even care for.
This was posted so long ago, but it has become SO relevant. The experience is atrocious now and I have to be honest, I've been using the service less and less. Every time I open a new stream I get a 30 second ad, it's incredible.
The intensity of the ads is intrusive and I get so annoyed now that going from one stream to another guarantees me a 15-30 second ad. I just end up closing the app and not bothering to watch anyone. Instead I just play games or watch streamers on YouTube. Your ad content is too overwhelming to make it worth it.
I've deleted the Twitch app from all devices until there is a fundamental change in advertising practices. If every time I change a channel, there is an ad, I'll just not watch. Also, hammering me with the same ad repeatedly (as a result I refuse to watch Tomorrow War) borders on abuse. I'll miss supporting streamers I enjoy but the annoyance associated with using the service has overcome the enjoyment and now kills any desire to watch, and crushes the appetite to explore new content creators.
Pannyboi, just stop paying for prime. Until they stop shoving ads up your throat for a profit they don't deserve, just don't give them a reason to ask you for it. If enough people revolt and cancel their prime because of this, do you think they will keep those ads for some miserable portion of the Prime profit they used to receive? It is us the users that show them we are willing to waste our time and money so they can profit off of pure nothingness. They won't give you ad-free prime unless you protest for it. Let their pockets feel your anger/frustration and you will quickly see the change desired.
It's just not worth asking a streamer do show something, them showing something(like a 5-15 mins wow raid boss) then missing a critical point for because a cringe ad comes on.
Please let me buy out of adds. I already am twitch prime, what else do i have to do to get rid of this?
I have made the decision to not view vods on twitch anymore, since the amount of ads within vod viewing is too overwhelming.
I got like 6 ad breaks viewing 1h hour of LEC vods, that is too mutch.
It is like watching normal tv, but only with the same ads.
Also i can not suppress the ads on my main vod channels, since i am watching LEC, etc. , where you can not subscribe.
Since DMC most of the streamers i watch, also upload their vods to youtube, so i tend to watch them there now. There are less ads and they are not so loud.
Either reduce the amount of ad breaks and lower the sound or add a premium abo where all ads are disabled.
Both options would be fine from my side.
GhostZero - As a streamer who, while not huge, at least had a fairly decent following and average viewers (20+ my last month streaming regularly), the amount of money made on ads was absolutely miniscule. I would have much rather NOT made the <$3.00 and given my viewers a better experience.
In 9 months since becoming an affiliate, while streaming a total of 262 hours and 7 minutes, with an average viewers of 18, I've made a grand total of $5.65 in ad revenue, which is an EXTREMELY tiny, fractional amount of my total revenue.
Ads do not help streamers AT ALL, that is a myth.
Like the youtube premium, prime members shouldn't see any ads.
