We’re happy to announce that we have released an additional update to address these concerns. Streamers can now prevent their banned users from watching their livestreams. You can find and turn on this feature in the Moderation settings section of the Creator Dashboard, through the “Stop banned users from viewing stream” toggle.
Please note, this update 1). does not prevent users from watching livestreams from an incognito window or while logged out and 2). does not prevent users from viewing VODs, clips or highlights. We plan to explore extending the functionality of bans further, including but not limited to preventing VOD and clip playback.
In addition, we’ve made an update so that users that are blocked will now automatically be blocked from watching a streamer’s livestreams.
We will leave this thread open for your other points regarding preventing view of other content types and account creation.

I'd ask twitch to consider trying to expand this further. Even if they're banned from chat it won't prevent continuingly feeding their unhealty obsession being able to view the stream.
Just read up on Ricardo López's obession with Björk; it was a very public instance of what we all should be aiming to prevent.
-Block offender from viewing the stream, only play ads if you want your revenue still
-Offer better tools to help streamers prevent stalking / harassment. Let them know if the same IP of an offender is viewing so it gives them even more evidence of stalking to report to law enforment if needed.
-If an offender is this way to someone; would you really want on your platform? Offer the option to IP ban with ample evidence of prolonged harrassment/stalking.
I don't expect any of my ideas to be possible, just please try to do more. Someone I know is in this situation presently and it sucks to feel helpless.
Hi, I know that this is a very late response, but we’re hoping to find time to address this issue later this year. There are a few steps we’ll have to take to solve this problem in a way that will work for all streamers, but we understand the severity of the issue.
