Make ads skippable after a certain time
Ads on youtube are much less intrusive because you can generally skip them after a short time. I go into a twitch stream and have to watch a full 30 second ad then get hit with 4 midroll ads up to 2 minutes, I'm not sticking around. Even on ads I've skipped on youtube, I'm made aware of the product. Watching for a full 30 seconds is not going to make me more likely to buy something.
Listen. I realize you guys need money. Money is important. But HOLY ******* ****, your streamers need money as well. Nothing turns my attention off more than getting quadruple 30 second ads on an independent streamer who is trying to, for instance, get educational commentary and analysis on a game. This isn’t like ******* football games where the networks and teams can cooperate to have a smooth progression of gameplay, analysis, and ads. It’s really disgraceful and hurts the small streamer market. Either make the ads skippable OR give the streamer more control over when they can dumb ads onto the viewers, it will help their channel and you can still make money because that’s all you greedy corrupt ***** seem to care about nowadays
