Same thing happens to me, I lag during peak hours on twitch no matter what the resolution is (even 240p) on my normal connexion. However when I'm accessing twitch through a VPN 720p+ works fine.

Barely any lag when it's 3 am.

I have been having the same problem since the last couple of days, from like 2am to 1pm y have 0 issues, I can watch streams in any quality with 0 lag, but the rest of the day i cant watch anything, not even 240p, at first I thought it was my inet, used speedtest and everything was fine. I even can watch 1080p Youtube videos with 0 problem during the time that i cant watch 240p streams.

Somebody help plz ?

I suggest giving this a shot: http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/19o7xp/i_just_figured_out_why_1080p_60fps_streams_are/

Otherwise, I would contact your ISP when you are trying to watch Twitch.tv and ask them if they are throttling service to our site.
