DaD TV

A Final Fantasy XIV Charity Streamer and Content Creator

Welcome on in! My name is Gareth from Dad TV, a neurodivergent Final Fantasy XIV streamer and content creator in support of the National Autistic Society. My Twitch gaming content focuses on having fun and enjoying the world of Eorzea with the community, covering everything from story content to raiding and gamour, whilst my YouTube content features comical shorts and music videos focused on Final Fantasy XIV.

Twitch Channel Trailer

My community, the Agents of Chaos, are a new player friendly community who value friendship and enjoyment above all else. We pride ourselves in being an inclusive and helpful community who want to share our experiences of Eorzea with each other!

Streams For Autism

Each and every single one of my streams is in support of the National Autistic Society. Through my streams, I aim to raise awareness of Autism and the charity, using a JustGiving page to help raise money for them. On top of that, 10% of all subs and bits given to me through Twitch are also donated to the National Autistic Society.

My Story

When my daughter was 3 years old, she was diagnosed with Autism. That hit us hard because we really didn’t know anything about Autism or what she would need from us as parents. Thanks to the National Autistic Society, I have been able to find a wealth of information and advice on how to care for and be a better parent to a child with Autism.

As such, since they have helped me to improve my daughter’s life, I decided to use my lifelong hobby of gaming to try and help them in return.

Schedule

I stream fours days per week, specifically on Tuesdays and then every Thursday to Sunday, at 10PM UK for around 3 hours. This allows me to ensure that I am always giving you the best possible quality of entertainment.

When not focusing on new storyline content, you can expect Tuesdays to be raid night, whilst the other days vary from co-streams to FC nights and Palace of the Dead challenges!

Stream FAQs

What Games Do You Stream?

Having changed my stream focus from a mix of retro games over to Final Fantasy XIV, I almost entirely stream Final Fantasy XIV. This includes the storyline, dungeons, raids and also community runs and Free Company days.

What Sort of Final Fantasy XIV Content Do You Make?

My Final Fantasy XIV content varies depending on whether you’re watching live on Twitch or watching my videos on YouTube.

As a Final Fantasy XIV streamer, I play through the main story as a priority whenever new story is available. Aside from that, I regularly farm mounts and learn fights with my FC and Twitch community, grind relic weapons, and have recently started to Savage raid with plans to take on Ultimate raids in the very near future as well.

As a Final Fantasy XIV content creator on YouTube, I make comical YouTube Shorts focused on FFXIV, ranging from funny moments on stream to edited glamour showcase shorts. On top of this, I made Final Fantasy XIV music videos and glamour guides as well.

Why Do Your Streams Say “Streams for Autism”?

Since my daughter was diagnosed with Autism, we have found that the National Autistic Society in the UK has been a wealth of information and advice. They have helped us provide for our daughter so much.

As such, I use my streams as a way to give back to the National Autistic Society through both awareness and fundraising. You can find out how you can be a part of this at my JustGiving page here.

What Do You Mean By A Spoiler-Free Community?

We define a “spoiler” as revealing a key aspect of the plot or a surprise event. This could be the first appearance of an enemy, the death of a main character, or anything in between. The Dad TV community refrains from sharing these details with each other until they have happened on stream. As we also have people joining Final Fantasy XIV constantly, we also work to ensure that any spoiler moments that may show on stream are prefaced by spoiler-warnings for those who are new to the game.

Doing this will help to ensure that everyone can fully enjoy the game as we play through it.

What Is A Twitch Subscription?

Due to a difference in terminology, a Twitch Subscription and a YouTube Subscription are very different. The equivalent of a YouTube Subscription on Twitch would be a follow. A Twitch Subscription is more akin to YouTube’s Members system.

Effectively, from the low cost of $4.99 per month, you can subscribe to the 16-Bit Dad Twitch channel. From there, you’ll get a number of rewards depending on the level of subscription you choose. On top of that, 10% of every subscription to the 16-Bit Dad channel will be donated through to the National Autistic Society too!

Can I Support The Streams In Other Ways?

Oh, absolutely! I will never demand or require you to donate any monetary value to enjoy my streams. If you want to support my content and fundraising, there are a number of ways you can do it:

* Following me on Twitter here.
* Watching the stream and chatting with the community.
* Making clips of my stream to share with the community.
* Retweeting my tweet when I go live.
* Sharing my streams on Social Media or with your friends
* Sharing my JustGiving page on Social Media or with your friends

The Barracks Discord Server

Alongside my Final Fantasy XIV streams and content creation, I also run The Barracks Discord server. This Discord server is designed to be a place for new and experienced players to come together and share their adventures in Eorzea. On top of meeting new friends in a welcoming community, you’ll also find the following;

* Guides for both new players and endgame content.
* Our own Mentors, who really enjoy helping others learn more about the game, clear content and more.
* A party finder system, to help you gather community members to help you through content.
