    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.

    The proposed solution does not address the OPs issue -> banned users should not be able to view your channel at all. Having potentially abusive individuals lurking and watching me (or really, me feeling that it might be possible for them to do so) is enough to make me not want to stream at all. It's anxiety inducing and destructive. A ban needs to be a ban.

    I think that in order to facilitate this, as channel owners perhaps we would need an option to only allow registered users to view the channel.
