More Options for an Ad-Free Experience
What I would like to see is people who hold multiple concurrent subscriptions, say 4 or 5 and up, to be allowed to have a site-wide advertisement-free experience.
Currently Turbo is the only option for an ad-free experience site-wide. Prime used to have it, but it was removed as a benefit for Prime (even though Prime costs more). Personally I find Turbo to be very unappealing for its cost, especially when I already have Prime which comes with most of its other perks.
I'd rather spend that money unlocking emotes in other streamer's channels as I feel it makes me more connected to the community of those streamers. I'm sure others may have similar reasons for getting individual subscriptions over Turbo.
I don't see why people with this many, or even a dozen or more subs, have to endure ads on the site when they provide enough money to Twitch as it is. They shouldn't have to make a choice between subscribing to more channels or getting Turbo, in my opinion. Especially with how little the ad revenue helps channels in comparison.
This would also help with subscription numbers for smaller channels, as people will be more willing to subscribe to multiple channels to unlock an ad-free experience, or be putting the money they would otherwise spend on Turbo towards more subscriptions.
Subs should stack and be the equivalent to a Twitch Turbo subscription if someone has a certain number of subs active at once (gifted or not). This would incentivize people to gift subs and to sub to their favorite streamers, as if you add up Twitch's cut of the revenue some people are most definitely paying for more than an equivalent Twitch Turbo subscription and still receiving pre-roll and random mid-roll ads.
I would rather support the platform and content creators at the same time, versus picking and choosing.
Twitch Turbo is $9/mo. Twitch gets half of my $5/mo from each Tier 1 sub. So stop showing me ads once I have four or five subs. I don't even care about the rest of the Turbo stuff.
Turbo, although it supports streamers, does not offer many enticing incentives outside of an ad-free experience. A lot of people appear to get far more enjoyment out of subscribing to channels as it allows them to feel like they're a part of the community.
Prime was a nice solution, it used to have ad-free viewing, but it got ditched despite Prime costing more than Turbo. I believe that should be brought back.
Although I'm more of a fan of the idea of allowing people with multiple concurrent subscriptions offering an ad-free experience sitewide. This offers the chance to more directly support smaller creators, while at the same time not stunting their growth because nobody wants to watch ad breaks to check out streamers they've never watched (the current system). I picked the number 5 or more, because at that point Twitch is getting $12.50 a month, more than the cost of Turbo -- which itself costs more than other streaming platforms such as Hulu, Disney+, etc.
