I'm thinking of never visiting Twitch again because of bad ad experience
Especially the "Meica Flashking Ad" here in Germany is really driving me crazy. It's a cool idea, and I even looked it up manually only seeing this campaign is already 2 years old. Why run ads with that?
But the real problem is, I only get THAT ad, I must have watched it at least a 100 times already, it keeps coming up.
When I finally decided which channel to stick by and give them the 15 second ad revenue, I am briefly excited to watch the streamer. But that does not last very long because 5 minutes into the stream the ad comes up AGAIN. I then close Twitch because I'm so frustrated.
When will Twitch realize its creators are producing LIVE content and stream ads are so disruptive when you miss 15 to 30 seconds of it.
I truly understand this business runs off of ads - but trust me, I wouldn't write here if the current situation was anywhere near acceptable.
Here's my suggestions:
- Run banner ads
- Run small overlay ads (as YouTube does)
- Run pip ads like in television where the streamer content shrinks a bit and then there's ads on the side
