Twitch Cuts Ad-Free Viewing Benefit From Prime Membership

Twitch Cuts Ad-Free Viewing Benefit From Prime Membership

Amazon has announced that beginning on August 28, it will no longer offer 20 percent off pre-orders for Prime subscribers.

Twitch Prime, for those not familiar, is a program that allows Amazon Prime members to attach their accounts to Twitch in order to receive special benefits as they consume content. With ads, the platform and game creators can get a cut.

"As we have continued to add value to Twitch Prime, we have also re-evaluated some of the existing Twitch Prime benefits", reads a new blog post over on Twitch. If you already have an annual subscription, or if you upgrade to an annual subscription before September 14, you will continue with ad-free viewing until your next renewal date.

Just like with nearly every other entertainment platform, Twitch has announced that their Prime subscription service will be removing its universal ad-free viewing status, including advertisements for all new members starting September 14.


For new Twitch Prime members, the universal ad-free experience ends September 14. But one of the biggest features was the ad-free experience across Twitch.

Although Twitch is dropping the ad-free perk, it's promising new "premium benefits" to the Prime program in the near future. You can activate your Twitch Prime subscription after getting on Amazon Prime - you can go for a free Amazon Prime trial here.

Of course, you can always sign-up for Twitch Turbo to gain ad-free viewing. The promotional credit only lasts for 60 days and is limited to products sold directly sold by Amazon, not by third-party retailers. Like Amazon's movie and TV streaming service and two-day shipping, the benefits of Twitch Prime are all wrapped up within the same $59 per year subscription. What you have to do is use your monthly subscription token on a channel that has ad-free viewing turned on.

Thanks to every Twitch Prime member for supporting Twitch and your favorite streamers.
