Amazon Prime members now get ad-free Twitch streaming, free games, and more


Amazon has announced that Prime members will now be able to watch Twitch, the world’s biggest livestreaming platform that’s popular with gamers, without ads, which normally costs $8.99 per month. The new perk is called Twitch Prime and comes with a few additional extras. Prime members also get free digital games, starting with Streamline, as well as free “game loot” like skins, characters, and boosts within games. Other perks include exclusive deals on new game releases. If you’re already a Prime member, all you have to do is link your Amazon and Twitch accounts together by clicking the link at the bottom-right of this page.

    Never had use for Twitch. Does it have anything useful? (Not people playing games?)

    Now I’m hoping we’ll see YouTube Prime. :)

      YouTube is owned by Google, so that will never happen. Amazon bought Twitch in 2014, but has mostly let it be independent.

      YouTube is owned by Google but if you’re a Spotify user, cancel Spotify and sign up for Google Music. $9.99 a month just like Spotify, same music library plus podcasts, radio stations, and a smoother interface overall and as a subscriber, you get YouTube Red for free.

    Amazon is piling on the Prime perks, I hope they won’t begin piling on a price increase for Prime with all this.

    Why do I have to register for a Twitch account then link it with my Amazon account just to use it? I have too many passwords already. If I can’t just log into my Amazon prime account so I am not going to bother.
