Reduce Ads, or Skippable Ads?
As we know, ads are common on any platform and I understand they're a primary source of income. Generated for both parties (twitch, and content creators) and is evenly split between both parties. However, sometimes these ads are intrusive and lead to a reduction in viewer retention.
While the viewers suffer from advertisements but also streamers, streamers stream for 4 hours a day, sometimes every day, and some stream more. That's a part-time job, and some aren't gaining anything out of it. I, myself am a streamer and try to stream 5 days a week, but I find it very difficult since I'm forced to run 3 advertisements per hour to reduce the chance of newer viewers running into a preroll ad.
Here are ways we can fix this:
- Add skippable ads,
- Add non-intrusive advertisements, and
- Add a subscription-based system, or reiterate on the twitch turbo subscription, raise the price to CAD$13.99 (10.99) that removes all advertisements while still allowing users to contribute to the streamer they're watching.
These are some possible ways that you (twitch) can make the user experience better while making money, and helping content creators/streams make a living.
Werbung redzieren! Bin nach 5 min so genervt beim Channel switchen das ich kein Bock mehr hab noch was zu schauen ! Stöbern no go inzwischen! Man ist gezwungen zu Abonieren um keine Dauer Werbung mehr zu sehen und das ist leider Pech für Euch denn ich komme nicht mehr oft zu Euch! War früher echt besser aber Geldgeier for the win! Bye!
