How to stop Twitch ads (it's real, no 4Head)
Annoyed by ads interrupting the most crucial moments of your favorite streams on Twitch? Been there, we know the pain. So today, we wanted to talk about how to block twitch ads. Hopefully, it won’t be another CoolStoryBob for you, but will actually bring some new knowledge on the matter.
To cut the long story short, there are two main options regarding how to block ads on Twitch:
Methods related to Twitch itself
Use of adblock to block video ads
How to stop Twitch ads using Twitch itself
Subscribing to channels If you subscribe to a broadcaster, it stops all third-party ads on their stream.
Buy Twitch Prime subscription Getting Twitch Prime, among other benefits, lets you remove all ads from Twitch at once, because in this case broadcasters receive revenue from your Prime subscription. TIP: Twitch Prime can be acquired free of additional charge if you have Amazon Prime account. Just connect it to your Twitch account and you are good to go.
NOTE: Even these methods remove only Twitch-based ads, ads coming from streamer and his affiliated programs cannot be removed, since they are a part of the video itself.
How to stop Twitch ads using adblock
Basically, blocking ads on Twitch is similar to blocking any other video ads, and that’s similar to blocking ads in general: the trick is effective adblock and filters.
Adblocking on desktop PCs
For desktop computers, you can choose an extension for your favorite browser, e.g. Google Chrome. If you want to block ads in the desktop Twitch app as well, you might want to consider a stand-alone adblock program.
Adblocking on mobile devices (FeelsBadMan)
Unfortunately, with mobile devices it is not all so satisfying. In case of Android, most of the time you could get rid of Twitch ads in the browsers, but not in the Twitch app itself, because in latter case https-filtering is needed, and that, unfortunately, is only available to do on rooted Android devices.
With iOS, the situation is even worse. Don’t be surprised, if adblock is not working on Twitch app. Basically, both architecture of iOS and Apple’s policy prevents adlockers from blocking any ads outside Safari browser. Yes, you’ve read it right: on iOS devices, Twitch ads can be stopped only if you watch it in Safari browser. Apple is pulling a huge JeBaited on us with this one.
