    Just to provide some clarity – we actually already handle the timezone translation for both streamer and viewer, so viewers should be able to see exactly when you’re going live in their timezone. We realize it’s tricky because we don’t have any messaging that explains this, so we will be working to get that added.

    For a better awareness of time differences, have schedule show streamer's home timezone and times in addition to viewer's timezone, making both visible at the same time, in the Schedule section and on the individual schedule items with set times.
    Channel timezone could be a setting in Dashboard, with a toggle to set it's visibility (so it'd be an opt-in setting, since some might choose to hide it for privacy).
    Right now, figuring out how the time differences pan out would involve asking around about that, holding that information somewhere, and doing a bunch of extraneous time math. It would be much easier if schedule items could just display streamer-local times right next to the viewer-local times.
