Introduction
Well on one hand we are all delighted Twitch has come to the Xbox One with the Twitch app, but on the other, this is easily one of the hardest and longest apps on the market. For those unfamiliar with Twitch, it is a service that allows users to view video games in real time as they are going on, most times with commentary and dialog from the gamers themselves. It now hosts amazing events such as GDQ (Games Done Quick - Charity for Cancer) as well as the infamous Pokemon fighting (TwitchPlaysPokemon) and everything in between. Along with some amazing uses, superb twitch feeds, and plenty of interesting, dare I say :kappa: chats, the achievement list for the app is on a whole new level of difficult for an app.

Abbreviated Walkthrough
Breaking down the app, we will need to keep an eye out for a couple of the harder achievements, and then will easily be able to grind out the mundane ones. The achievement you will need to keep your ears pinned to, and will need to keep checking up on will be "Standing Room Only" as it requires the twitch have over 100,000 viewers currently watching it when you join. Many times some of the videos highlighted on the main page of the app will have the most viewers as they bring in the most recognition for Twitch. With this out of the way we will be using one channel to complete all other achievements--TwitchPlaysPokemon.

Find the channel and follow it to give it priority in accessing it on the app. Now you can either strategically play videos from TwitchPlaysPokemon to get the specific hours (five hours of live Twitch between 12-4am "Night Owl") and (10 hours of live Twitch between 7-10pm on weekdays "Prime Time"). If you plan on just grinding it out as fast as possible, simply let TwitchPlaysPokemon run on one of the older videos that are significant in hours. The only important thing to remember is that you need to check in on the app often to ensure that it is still playing. If the video is running, you are gaining progress in the achievements. The best part of everything--all of those old videos from TwitchPlaysPokemon are live and they are almost always under 10 viewers.

Conclusion
I congratulate you on completing one of the hardest, and most arduous apps on the Xbox One. If you stuck with the RoadMap, and were able to let that poor Xbox run without much guidance for a while you have come out of this app, mostly unscathed, with an amazing new completion to add to your tag. Twitch provided some of the hardest achievements for their app, and certainly some of the most diverse. Congratulations again, and good luck with the next endeavor.

There are 10 achievements with a total of 0 points

  • Watch 1 hour of live video on Twitch.

     

    See "Best Viewer NA" for the best technique to get the live hours.

  • Watch 10 hours of live video on Twitch.

     

    See "Best Viewer NA" for the best technique to get the live hours.

  • Watch 100 hours of live video on Twitch.

     

    We will be using a single channel for the majority of the hours needed to complete this app. I suggest you follow the channel called "TwitchPlaysPokemon" as it is the single best source for long, live videos. Inside of the channel itself are older, archived videos that are endless hours long--with the biggest caveat, they are all live and cleaned of viewers. Simply choose one of the longer videos, let it run endlessly, but remember to check back on it often to ensure you haven't disconnected or the video playback has not ended.

  • Watch 1 hour of live video on Twitch channels that have less than 10 viewers.

     

    See "Talent Scout" for full details in getting the hours with less than 10 viewers.

  • Watch 10 hours of live video on Twitch channels that have less than 10 viewers.

     

    Head into TwitchPlaysPokemon and once you are in this channel choose one of the older videos and simply let it run. It will count as both a live video, and one under 10 viewers.

  • Watch a broadcast on Twitch that has more than 100K concurrents.

    This will be the hardest to land out of all of the achievements if there are lulls in big named streaming. What I suggest is heading to twitch.tv on a laptop or web browser to see what the homepage looks like. Twitch always gives the biggest spotlight to the largest viewer streams so by finding that channel on your web browser, you can go back to your app and simply search for it. You will get the achievement upon entering a stream with over 100,000 viewers, or when the stream goes over.

  • Watch a single channel on Twitch for more than 8 hours consecutively.

    Find the TwitchPlaysPokemon channel, choose any video that is longer than eight hours, and let it run. After the eight hours is over and there have been no breaks in your connection or errors to the replay of the video, the achievement will unlock.

  • Watch a total of 5 hours of live video on Twitch between the hours of 12am and 4am.

     

    This achievement will take at least two days to get because you cannot hit five hours in the allotted time. Just like "Prime Time," it's best to use TwitchPlaysPokemon and to use an older video to cruise through the hours. You can leave the app on and turn the TV off to conserve electricity.
     

  • Watch at least 1 minute of live video on Twitch, in every hour of the day.

    You can simply leave your Xbox One on for a day, but I do suggest you check back on your Xbox every so often because sometimes the live streams drop out, or the chats lag the stream out. Remember to go to the channel TwitchPlaysPokemon and head to one of the older videos to get the least traffic possible.

  • Watch 10 hours of live video on Twitch between the hours of 7:00pm and 11:00pm, on a weekday.

     

    You should have your app begin to run on a video before 7:00pm and let it run through 11:00pm so you can snag every precious minute. Obviously this will need to be over the course of a few days in order to get all 10 hours. It may be best to pair this up with "Talent Scout" and head into TwitchPlaysPokemon. Once you are in this channel choose one of the older videos and simply let it run. It will count as both a live video, and one under 10 viewers.
