    This is cumulative, doesn't have to be done all at once.

    When you click the top channels button, it'll show you the top x number of channels. The really low channels (under 200 or so viewers) won't show up, so you'll have to go to the games section and click on random games (or one you want to watch) and see if someone's streaming that game that has less than 10 viewers (viewer count is denoted on the channel picture with a little person icon and a number).

    If you have the Twitch app snapped you'll see the amount of viewers. Since this amount never changes unless you back out of the channel and start it again, it may count towards this achievement even if the viewer count goes above 10 if you started watching while there were less than 10 viewers.

    zsoltee53AUZ_CAST is the best channel for this achievement. This is a 24/7 music channel and always have less than 10 viewers. I did this in 3 parts with this broadcast, but you can do this in 1 big part.

    I appear to have gotten the achievement today by watching a past broadcast from the archive. For the last couple of days I'd been catching up on streams I'd missed over christmas and the achievement popped inexplicably this afternoon.

    My best guess is that, because I'm watching an old video alone - not live - and not being streamed to anyone else at that exact spot on the recording, that it counts as if I'm the one and only viewer of a unique stream.

    So if anybody feels like catching up on past broadcasts by bigger twitch names rather than watching (and hoping for) a sub-10 viewer feed: try it out & confirm!

    zsoltee53Me too got this idea, but I see you already wrote a solution. Nice job! clap Just some additional info: the most 24/7 channel have 10+ hours videos in past broadcasts. You can find 25-30 hours long videos in TwitchPlaysPokemon channel.

    MikeyoligyCan confirm that this doesn't seem to be working any more. Watched a past broadcast for around an hour, and my percentage didn't go up.

    Then found a live stream with 3 viewers, and the percentage has started going up. Not sure if it's because the original stream I watched the past broadcast of had more than 10 viewers, or they may have changed the description of the cheevo as it says "live video".

    One very easy way to unlock this achievement is already "watching" a channel before a stream even started and then continue watching the stream.
    Since the app is going to think that there are still zero viewers once the stream actually starts, you'll get this achievement even on streams that have 500+ viewers on a regular basis.

    All you need is to follow some streamer who regularly streams and navigate to their channel five minutes or so before they start their stream. Depending on how long the streamer is usually live [and/or you willing to watch], you'll unlock it after a couple of sessions.
