What extensions can be used to block Twitch channels
You can block a Twitch channel if you don’t like it. You can also hide it with a web browser extension. Twitch has a feature to hide unwanted streams. Previously, it was an extension; now you can only access it through Tampermonkey’s userscript manager, which isn’t as straightforward as it once was. A Chrome extension called Unwanted Twitch is available from kwaschny.net. This guide shows you how to install it.
Install the Chrome Web Store extension there.
- Go to the Twitch website.
- You can block a channel from your home page by clicking the X in the top right corner.
- The unwelcome Twitch channel has now been blocked.
You can unblock it by clicking the extension’s icon in your browser’s toolbar on any Twitch page and selecting Manage Blacklist. You can unblock Twitch channels by clicking the Remove button next to the channel you want to unblock or by clicking the Clear button to unblock all blocked Twitch channels. To save the change, click the Save button. Another way to block Twitch channels is to add channel names to a blacklist.
