Twitch has said the changes are being made because advertising is good way for viewers to support a streamer. Alternatively, users can pay an additional $8.99 Dollars a month for ad-free viewing via Twitch Turbo. Those who already have a Twitch Prime subscription or begin a subscription before the date of change will continue to have ad-free streaming until October 15, after which the benefit will become exclusive to the higher tier of subscription Twitch Turbo for $8.99 per month.
First, universal ad-free viewing will no longer be part of Twitch Prime for new members, starting on September 14.
All other Twitch Prime benefits, like monthly channel subs, monthly games and loot and chat badges are staying the same. That's $20 a month if viewers want everything Twitch has to offer if they're not willing to splurge on Amazon Prime ($10.99 for Prime and $8.99 for Turbo).
It's a little weird, especially considering that Twitch Prime used to give those streamers the revenue even though the ads weren't viewed. Effectively, the new pre-order benefits at both Best Buy and Amazon are less valuable and more limited than they were previously. If you have an annual subscription or upgrade before September 14th. This means you will essentially be the same as a non-Prime member and still get the usual ads when going into streams that you aren't subbed to. It was a competing server that offered its subscribers a 20 percent discount on games as well.
Twitch Prime members, meanwhile, will still be able to receive independent games and access special emotes. "Are you okay? - Starving PoetI'd rather have ad free viewing than the "$1,000 worth of games and loot" I never use. This new program will replace the current one, where Prime members get 20% off when they pre-order select titles.
Thank you for being a Twitch Prime member.
