Helix Commercial API broken?

Hey, I have been trying out the Helix Commercial API recently. I got a response of:

{"data":[{"message":"Starting commercial break. Keep in mind you are still live and not all viewers will receive a commercial.","length":60,"retry_after":480}]}

However, viewers didn’t get any commercials. If I were to run them through the creator dashboard it would work.

Is this expected, or a known issue? Thanks!

Keep in mind you are still live and not all viewers will receive a commercial.

The API and the dashboard all call the same things.

Not everyone will get a commerical and in some cases users won’t get any at all

Edit: and I use the helix commerical API and have no reported issues from my users

Than you for confirming that the API is not broken!

Also a random side note, that with it being January, traditionally thats the worst month for people buying ads, so there also generally might not be any ads to show.
