Forcing me to watch 5 ads before I can see the stream makes me want to go watch netflix / youtube instead.
Currently twitch is forcing me to view 5 ads whenever I click on a stream.
This is turning me off watching completely, as these ads last for 5 minutes.
I think we can agree that it is crazy to expect a viewer to wait for 5 minutes before they can see the stream and decide if they want to continue watching.
This is currently making it impossible for me to browse streams.

Same, I wanted to watch game tournaments then boom, ads stop the stream, forcing me to refresh it forcing itself to play. A little more and I'm gonna stop watching like this.
Agreed 100% There is nothing on this site that is worth sitting through 3 minutes worth of ads.
