Inconvenient, albeit a functional fix.

Re: Twitch channel not working anymore?

Twitch is owned by Amazon and ads won't display in Roku, they tried.... so they finally cut the stream I'm guessing. That 3rd Party TTV app is nothing more than an advertising gimic. Either Roku is going to have to come to terms with Amazon or I'm dumping my new Roku's for Fire Sticks. Maybe that is what Amazon wants us to do.

You could always buy an Apple TV or android tv device. They have official Twitch apps too.

Theyve invented things called Computers that handle this stuff much much better.

When I called up TTV all I saw was advertisers... if I'm wrong than I'm wrong... doesn't matter Twitch just loaded up this afternoon, so it's up, then down... maybe they are working on it.

Re: Twitch channel not working anymore?

Mine stopped working as well. I noticed a pattern though. If none of my followed or subscribed streamers are live, then it works and I can browse and watch random streams. However as soon as one of my followed streamers starts a stream, I can't start the app.

It's really a shame we have such a hard time watching Twitch on Rokus. I feel like it's because they (Twitch) want people to gravitate towards platforms that support interaction like chat, and more importantly monetary contribution.

They are driving everyone to Amazon products because Amazon owns them. It's a whole monopoly unfortunately.
