Amazon Prime members no longer get ad-free Twitch privileges

Wednesday, 22 Aug, 2018

To continue ad-free viewing, users will need to opt for a further $8.99 subscription to Twitch Turbo.

The popular streaming platform has announced that the benefit of avoiding advertisements on their website will no longer be included as part of the Twitch Prime package.

'Advertising is an important source of support for the creators who make Twitch possible.

"This change will strengthen and expand that advertising opportunity for creators so they can get more support from their viewers for doing what they love", explains the blog post. Instead, Prime members' accounts will be credited $10 for every game they pre-order. Like the 20% discount, this is only valid on games sold by Amazon, and not third-party resellers.

To no one's surprise, some users are upset and pointing out that the ad-free viewing experience has been a central benefit to the whole program. Will you miss ad-free Twitch Prime?

In addition to ending the pre-order discount, ad-free viewing will not be offered to new Twitch Prime members as of September 14, while monthly subscriptions will have access to ad-free viewing until October 15. For annual subscription holders, they'll continue to watch content ad-free until the next renewal date. All eligible pre-orders placed before August 28 will still receive the 20 percent discount under the existing benefit once the game is released.

Those really flinching at the idea can upgrade to the Twitch Turbo subscription, which retains ad-free viewing alongside more emoticon options, custom username colors, and cloud storage for your own broadcasts for up to 60 days.
