Twitch Teams up With Amazon to Bring You Twitch Prime

Twitch Prime brings the benefits of your Amazon Prime membership over to Twitch, with free subscriptions, and other goodies.

Ever since Amazon bought Twitch back in 2014, gamers have been wondering how the new owners would make the most of its new property. Well, at Twitch con this weekend, Twitch announced the first major collaborative effort between the two companies: Twitch Prime. Twitch Prime is exactly what it sounds like, Amazon Prime for your Twitch account. It comes with plenty of goodies like free subscriptions, and what's more, if you already are an Amazon Prime member, it's completely free!

So what exactly does Twitch Prime give you? First up, you'll get free gaming loot every month. For example, this month all Twitch Prime members will get a free copy of Streamline, and some other in-game goodies. Once you've linked your Amazon Prime account to your Twitch account, you'll also get a completely ad-free viewing experience, exclusive emotes and chat badge, and one free channel subscription every 30 days. And don't worry about cheating your favorite channels out of subscriber cash - when you use your free channel subscription, the channel owner still gets paid the same as usual.

Getting Twitch Prime is as easy as signing up for Amazon Prime, and then linking your Amazon account to your Twitch account over at Twitchprime.com.

There are, of course, some country restrictions. Twitch Prime is currently only available in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. For those of you in countries outside of this limited list, you'll have to make do with Twitch Turbo, which, by the way, is being removed in countries where Twitch Prime is available.

So is it an additional free subscription every 30 days? Or every 30 days you can change your free subscription?

I personally am not a big fan of "subscriptions" since so many things want you to do it that eventually we will just be paid by our jobs in subscriptions rather than money, but I dont subscribe to Amazon Prime OR anything on Twitch, so reducing required things is more palatable to me than adding.

I already had Prime set up and today I linked it to my Twitch account. Uh... to be honest even I don't know, but I'll find out at the end of the month.

I got a student Amazon Prime trial, linked my account to get the new Priest hero for Hearthstone, and then immediately unlinked it.

Twitch chat is cancer, which means I have no use for emotes or subscriptions, I have AdBlock for the ads, and I really doubt they'll give us any decent games for free.

I seem to be the only person on the Internet who prefers to have all of his services compartmentalized, instead of linking them all together.

Free subscription? Channel gets paid? Annnd it's gone to Total biscuit. No contest.

Aaand it appears my one free subscription just ended, so it's every 30 days you can change your free subscription. Kinda shit compared to what I thought it was before.

Credit for remembering. I didnt. I still dont much care for subscriptions to most things, but I dont have regular income.
