is sad how roku is getting rid of top channels people enjoy, from dailymotion to twitch.
twitched was then created by a user and I loved it. sadly it has been removed. thanks roku smh
i guess fire tv or android tv is the best way to go now
Back in November of 2017 Amazon removed their official Twitch streaming Roku Channel from Roku players. Any Roku owner who already had the Twitch Channel installed on their Roku at the time got a warning message saying the app will no longer be updated but that they can still use it. Sadly new Roku owners would be unable to add the official Amazon Twitch channel.
Very quickly a 3rd party free Twitch app that worked just like the official Twitch channel appeared called Twitched Zero. There was also a paid version that costs $0.99 just called Twitched. Back in May the creator behind Twitched Zero shut it down and today Twitched has also removed the Roku Channel [, thus] shutting down down the last option to watch Twitch streams on Roku unless you are grandfathered into the old Twitch app. Sadly the Twitched Roku Channel is being forcibly removing the channel from Roku Players and Roku TVs.
Channels may become unavailable for a variety of reasons, including at the request of content owners.
See more here: channel developer (details of which disappeared with the channel from both our devices and the Channel Store) or a third party content owner such as Amazon Twitch. Best of all would be a reference to authoritative information about the channel where details such as status, history and instructions on obtaining a refund) are available so we do not have to rely on the increasingly widespread hearsay on the subject.
When Amazon withdrew the Twitch channel from the Store, my recollection is that there was some more appropriate communication.
Thanks in anticipation.
Roku Is Issuing Refunds to Anyone Who Paid for the Twitched Roku Channel
According to the dev, it was removed at the request of Twitch Interactive by Roku.

Not sure why Roku lied and said it was removed at the request of the developer...
