Amazon Prime members no longer get ad-free Twitch privileges

Amazon Echo price deal

Along with that bad news, Amazon also announced that Prime members will no longer get 20 per cent discounts off pre-ordered new game releases either.

Amazon Prime members will no longer receive 20% off new games when they pre-order, the company revealed today. And if you bought an annual subscription, you'll continue to be able to watch without ads until your next renewal date. Should viewers simply want to skip a single channel's ads, they can pay that channel's monthly subscription cost, though this varies on a channel-by-channel basis.

Twitch Prime members with monthly subscriptions will continue to get ad-free viewing until October 15; those who already have an annual subscription (or those who upgrade to an annual subscription before September 14) will continue with ad-free viewing until their next renewal date.

On Monday, Twitch said it will drop its "universal ad-free viewing" experience on the Prime program starting on September 14.

How Jose Mourinho Reacted To Paul Pogba’s Unhappy Comments
Mourinho entered his third season in the Old Trafford hotseat this summer, but finds himself in a hard situation at the club. Pogba hit back by telling Mourinho if he plans to speak to him formally again he should go through his agent Mino Raiola.


Despite the change, Twitch said subscribers can still enjoy an ad-free viewing experience.

While it's a bit disappointing to see the perk taken away, Twitch seems to be using the freed up resources to focus on better freebies in the future. A Reddit thread on the change is full of gamers threatening to kill their Prime subscriptions over the elimination of the 20 percent discount. Twitch Prime has been offering their customers ad-free viewing, but all that is about to change. Instead, they can get a $10 store credit, but only if they pre-order from a select list of games - and they'll have to wait up to 35 days to get their discount code. If people really want an ad-free Twitch experience, they will need to upgrade to the $8.99 per month Twitch Turbo.

Amazon raised the price of Prime earlier this year in the United States, so it's now time for the other shoe to drop.

As we have continued to add value to Twitch Prime, we have also re-evaluated some of the existing Twitch Prime benefits. Thank you for your support.
