Why was PewDiePie banned from Twitch? Possible reasons explored
Although the reason for PewDiePie’s Twitch ban is unknown, it is worth mentioning that he is not primarily a Twitch streamer. His sudden return to the platform on March 21 sparked confusion, with many speculating that his account was hacked when old content, including full episodes of Trailer Park Boys, was rebroadcast.
Later, it was revealed that CoPilotMedia had taken over the channel and was restreaming old content. However, the channel has since been removed due to a violation of Twitch’s community guidelines or terms of service.
Following the sudden ban of PewDiePie’s Twitch channel, some members of the Reddit community speculated on the possible reasons behind it. Some suggested that the infamous “bridge incident” was accidentally broadcasted during the 24/7 livestream, while others speculated that the action was due to Twitch’s new branded content policy. However, there has been no official statement from PewDiePie or Twitch regarding the cause of the ban.

its automatically running vod channel, youtube videos made for youtube guidelines… its bond to cross into twitch’s TOS as “not ok” cause youtube is much more loose on content than twitch.
