    Relevant Update  ·  Twitch responded

    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.

    Yes, they could. Which is what they do now, except they're able to completely watch the stream whether they take the time to create a new account/log out or not.

    Instead of just having them removed from chat, isn't it sensible and possible to have banned and/or blocked users completely removed from the channel altogether instead of just from chat? This would be separate from time outs and purges, and would be intended to keep harassing viewers from being able to use donate links (unless saved elsewhere) and from watching the stream at all. (Unless a new account is used obviously). Like, maybe a button that allows the streamer/editor of a channel to full-ban or full-block the specified user.
