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.
sometimes, i get 3 90seconds ads back to back.... lol
Has anyone tried among those who conceived the current advertising system to watch a stream? He believes, just like many of us do, that this is the worst advertising system in the world?
Twitch's ad policy, is ruining the platform. I will not be returning until stream time is > ad time. at this point, Auto ads + normal Stream ads = More time than most streams. Tons of content gets missed and it's required when switching between streams. Your "ad free" offer does not feel like a "value" it feels like a transparent cash grab. "Are you tired of the ads we intentionally shove down your throat? are your frustrated enough to throw cash at an otherwise free product? Buy turbo today!"
I need watch 7 ads before I can resume watching the stream. Yea no thanks, I go do something else.
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.
