    *The achievement seems to have been fixed by the most recent update (12/9/14), so if you had problems before try it again and see if it works.

    This achievement is not cumulative, it must be done all at once.

    For this to unlock, you must watch a single stream without backing out of it for a whole 8 hours. If you back out unintentionally or on purpose (or it says the broadcast finished when it didn't), you will need to start over. Most streams don't last for 8 hours at a time, so you'll need to find someone who's doing a marathon and let it run for 8 hours.

    TwitchPlaysPokemon is a great channel to try and get this on since they are usually streaming for long periods of time.

    srylain the 2ndEvery now and then it'll crash for me, you can pretty easily tell when it's about to happen as the video gets desynced with the audio and it starts getting choppy.

    The UI for the app is fine, I think Twitch just needs to rewrite the whole thing to make it work better.

    I am MindslaveThanks for the suggestion of TwitchPlaysPokemon. I stumbled across them while looking for something to watch this morning and ended up just letting it run. Got the achievement.

    I wrote this solution for those gamers who cannot unlock this achievement, because the app always crash. My app closed every time after 3-4 hours, but I succesfully did it in this way on first try.

    The first thing you must know, you can watch past broadcasts too, not only online live broadcasts. Now you have to find an 8-9 hours or longer video on Twitch. The best channels for this are Twitch and TwitchPlaysPokemon, because they have the longest videos.

    Now check your network connection and console. I prefer to use ethernet cable, but may a WiFi connection works too. I used 100Mbit wired connection with 10/1Mbit internet connection. Disconnect all wired and WiFi internet enabled devices in the house, phone, tablet, TV, other console, media server etc. Close every application on your Xbox One.

    Launch the Twitch app and snap the Achievements, so you can check your progress. Set the video guality to Auto. If your picture is not clear, have a lot of pixels, you must restart your modem or you still have some device on your WiFi network Start a long past broadcast and turn off your TV.

    After 8 hours the achievement should unlock. wink

    For me what I did was find a channel and put it on when I went to bed. Wake up and boom. Achievement unlocked.

    The channel I watched is named streamerhouse.
    They are I believe the only channel out there that streams 24-7

    Once again go to the channel name "StreamerHouse"

    They are always live, and have past broadcasts as well I believe.
