Ads support our creators, and are needed to keep Twitch free. Advertising also allows us to revitalize and invest in our communities around the world. Ad blockers do not explicitly oppose Twitch policy, but the use of ads means that creators are not paid for the ads they use on their channels.
We do not change the ad experience of any viewer using the ad blocker, nor do we identify viewers who use ad blockers for any different or unusual ad experiences.
This can sometimes result in third party tools, such as ads, temporary or permanent shutdown.
Typical Twitch ad feeling
Frequently Asked Questions
Typical Twitch ad feeling
We Have A Typical Ad Experience On Twitch. TV Today:
Mid-rolls are travel by creators, and pre-rolls are travel by Twitch.
Enabling mid-rolls on your channel helps disable pre-rolls.
All the rolls in the middle are perfect for photo-by-picture.
We do our best to create consistent content views and ad experiences for all users. Unfortunately, the use of blockers and the use of third-party scripts to alter ad performance on Twitch can lead to abnormal behavior.
The Following Are NOT Part Of The Expected Content Or Character View On Twitch:
Reduced streaming bitrate
Black screen during ads
Ads or screens asking you to visit Twitch.tv, or asking you to update your ad blocker
These things can happen when an AdBlock extension (or other extension) interferes with the operation of Twitch services.
How Can You Solve A Problem?
If you experience any of the ad experiences listed above, we recommend that you simply close up your ad blocker or replace any ad text you posted. It will always be our goal to continue to bring a consistent ad feeling to our viewers.
Can I Apply Ad Blockers To Twitch?
We don’t have a policy prohibiting the utilization of ad blockers and that we understand that a lot of people don’t want ads in their viewer information. However, ads support creators and are needed to keep the Twitch service free and to continue to design and invest in our communities around the world.
I Don’t Want To See Ads. What Can I Do, Without Using A Blockchain?
Turbo users do not see ads. Also, you will not receive ads if you subscribe to a channel that allows ad-free views.
Why Did The Ad Blocker [Insert Name Here] Stop Working On Twitch?
We cannot comment on the performance of third party ad blockers. We constantly update Twitch services – including our ad programs – and sometimes the changes we make block ads.
Does Twitch Show Me More Ads Because I’m Using A Blockchain?
No. It does not change the ad experience of any viewer using the ad blocker, nor does it show viewers who use ad blockers for any unique or unusual ad experience.
Why Should I Stay With Ads On Twitch?
Ads directly support creators, and help keep our service free and import new. Our goal is to continue to improve the ad experience to make it more profitable for creators and not to distract viewers
