Ads ignoring the Twitch Language Preference
Ads ignoring the Twitch Language Preference - Irritating
Twitch is set to ENG,
I'm located in GER,
please don't play GER ads. It's very irritating.
I get german adds in Lithuania. I don't speak german.
Same thing I get ads in a different language even tho English is set as my preferred language on Twitch. It's very irritating. Btw if I use a vpn to America to watch Twitch I only get american ads so I think it somthing country based. But pls actually fix this Twitch.
I live in Belgium. The official language of my region is Dutch. Twitch is set to English.
Why do I keep getting ads in French, a language I barely speak?
Same issue as 99% of all the others in this thread. Please let us choose the ad language.
I get ads in French. I may live in Belgium but the majority of people here speak Dutch. I don't speak or understand French. So I will not be persuaded to buy something if I don't understand it. And my account is set to English. Please let us choose the ad language.
I get French and German ads all the time and I am from Israel
so its not even a Native Language here :)
I get German ads all the time. I am from Norway and don't understand the adds. Is there a solution to this other than stop watching twitch?
I have the same problem, my preferred language is set to English, I'm located in the Netherlands and my ads are German. The German ads just sound like stupid gibberish to me.
Twitch is set to English in BC, Canada. Most ads are correct but I keep getting occasional French and Chinese ads. Good job someone.
I live in Belgium and Language is set to English but i get FRENCH dubbed ads.
just because i am located in Belgium doesn't mean i speak or understand French..
Only like 40% actually speaks French in Belgium, the majority speaks Dutch so why am i getting French dubbed ads?
I'm in Canada. No reason whatsoever why my ads should be in Portuguese. I'm English, I don't complain about the French, but Portuguese???
Adding to my previous comment below, I was thinking this is actually a much bigger problem and goes way way beyond Twitch. There are many online services which all share the same issues and show adverts that have little to no relevance to the user watching them.
For users who consume a lot of online material, I can understand why many would want to stop sharing advertisement preferences and block as much information as possible using ad-blockers, or even employ other methods to spoof their details.
Got Arcane ads in Russian, even though I don't speak any of that and live in Lithuania. Due to historical reasons of occupation, forcing ads in Russian (the language of occupants who tried to erase Lithuanian) is very offensive and upsetting to me. Fix it please. I see people complaining about this for ages, why do you even have suggestions/bugs if you ignore them?
Just like everyone wrote, I'm in Portugal and I'm getting PT-BR ads WHEN my preference is English. To me it's completely disgusting watching Riot Arcane ads in PT-BR when I'm used to watch it in English (because it affects the way I see the show and the characters).
If I have English language selected, respect it and don't show me ads in any other language.
Same issue. Got Russian ads in Lithuania. And no way to choose the language, and I am forced to watch add, that I start to hate. It is bad for advertisers.
Twitch staff are basically ignoring everything here.
This is absolutely stupid to force ads down our throats which are not in the language that we set, if im forced to watch an ad, don't make it unwatchable with random languages dubs and subtitles.
Play ads that match language preferences. I live in the US and don't speak Spanish. Running ads in a language I don't understand guarantees I'll never buy the product.
I'm experiencing the same issue. I get a lot of Spanish, but I'm not even sure which type of Spanish, is it from Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Uruguay there are so many countries in which Spanish is spoken...
Anyways, I'm in London, only speak and understand English (sorry) and I have never understood any of the adverts ever played here on Twitch. Currently, I just mute the advert(s) while I browse away from the tab for a short period.
I have allowed and configured as many of the advert preferences/settings that I know of, by trying my best to provide information on what adverts and topics that I'm interested in, with the hope that I get adverts I can understand and adverts on products & services that I'm actually interested in.
We should at least be able to select the location (or locations) that we want to hear adverts from. For me, London based advertisement, please.
Maybe some people would like adverts based in Canada but in English? So location and language (locale) based options would be nice to see. Even to select more than one location perhaps? If a selection has not been made by the user, then this auto-detect location/language is fine as a fallback, but it should have never been the primary way this advertisement selection operates.
same, Not all Canadians know French!! lol racist !!!!
It's so annoying. My selected language is english. Stop playing awful french ads with awful dub.
I don't watch english movies in french because dubbed versions suck.
Stop doing that. if you play a movie trailer at least have the decency to play the original, you know, in my selected language.
