Commentator Tools for Stream Viewers

As an occasional viewer of game streaming, i’m annoyed at how limited it all is. Game streaming is in full expansion and has potential to be more than what we’re getting now in terms of control for viewers at least.

When we look at sports commentary on such channels as RDS we see that the commentator has all sorts of option to pause the action, rewind, change camera, view in slow motion … why don’t we give these options to every single viewer as well?

Sure, this may require game companies to develop partnerships with streaming companies like Twitch and maybe it would require some additional development time for the tool but wouldn’t it make sense to see things like this for games that are esport focused? This would be especially useful during esports tournaments.
