Unified view count for the main channel of esports or community events
Allow the main channel for an esports event to send out invites to their official partner channels (alternate language streams, new player stream, etc.) on the day of an esports event so that the partner channels' view count is added to the view count of the main channel.
For example, for the R6 finals, the Rainbow6 channel would send out invites to Rainbow6BR and any other channels streaming the event, and all the viewers would count on Rainbow6's view count until the Rainbow6 channel ends the event, the partner channels opt out, or a set amount of time passes.
This addresses two problems:
For the viewers, it incentivizes companies to provide more alternate POV streams (focusing on one player, new player stream, etc.). League and Dota occasionally provide these streams, but it's harder for emerging games to do this because they really need the view count during big events for publicity and to prove their game is 'alive.'
For the game companies, it helps them show an accurate view count for the event which will make them very happy - especially for games with high alternate-language viewerships.
This is extra important for fps esports where the single POV can be very confusing and is definitely less optimal than letting the viewer watch one player of their choice.
This feature could also be offered to people running large community events such as the T1 League tournament where players were allowed to stream their own matches. The event owner could apply to get access to this feature for their event, and, if approved, would ensure the event's main channel gets a view count that reflects how many people are actually watching across different streams.
This last feature would benefit everyone since the community event gets more publicity, the individual streamers get to keep their streams going during the event, and the viewers are made aware of a cool event that they might have taken longer to notice if the views were diffused. They also get to enjoy the event with their favorite streamer.
If successful, it could even be extended to smaller events like podcasts, allowing all participants to keep streaming without harming the host.
