Let streamers purchase the ability to prevent ads from displaying
Ads disrupt the continuity of many streamers' broadcasts, e.g. a musician playing a song, a magician performing a trick, etc. So please implement a feature that allows streamers to prevent ads for all followers. You could charge a monthly fee. Many would gladly pay for this.
To other streamers up-voting this feature, please consider telling us what you stream specifically and how ads hurt the quality and continuity of your stream.
As a DJ and Musician, I've had ads that ran in the middle of a set, and I lose viewers... Why would anyone be vibing and want a Ford F-150 ad happen right in the middle of it? Ruins the content...
I stream performance magic, which requires that I keep a lot of mental plates spinning at once. Having to keep track of whether I've got enough time to finish a routine before an ad starts, whether I've got enough snoozes, etc. is detrimental to my content. If I lose track and an ad interrupts the trick, it's not like e.g. a music stream, where people just miss part of the song—magic requires uninterrupted continuity, and if you miss part of the trick, there is no magic. I would definitely considering paying to remove all ads from my stream so I could contentrate fully on making better content.
