Amazon Prime Discontinuing 20% Video Game Pre-Order Discount

If you sign up to Amazon Prime you can enjoy a number of benefits

First, universal ad-free viewing will no longer be part of Twitch Prime for new members, starting on September 14. For a full ad-free experience, Twitch says you can buy a subscription to Twitch Turbo. Luckily though, Amazon is once again following Best Buy's lead and will begin offering a $10 promo credit with the purchase of select video games beginning August 28.

This comes as Twitch - which lets gamers record and share in-game videos - realizes that advertising is "an important source of support for creators", according to the company's blog post.

As we have continued to add value to Twitch Prime, we have also re-evaluated some of the existing Prime benefits. You can still use your Prime subscription on any channel, but this won't disable ads on that channel unless the streamer has ad-free viewing for subscribers turned on. And if you bought an annual subscription, you'll continue to be able to watch without ads until your next renewal date.

Amazon US has announced (thanks Wario64) that it's taking away two of Prime's best features, affecting both the store as well as Twitch. 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.

So I respect him, but we both know on the pitch we must fight for our team. "We need to stay positive, very good, but stay angry as well.

Finally, there's one other way to get ad-free viewing, but this one is only valid for a single channel.

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. Twitch Prime benefits aren't going anywhere, the company stated, and the community should expect more and better free games, in-game loot, channel subscriptions, exclusive badges and more.

Twitch Prime is still, and will always be, packed with premium benefits you can't get anywhere else.

Twitch Prime is a great way to earn a load of extra goodies if you consume a lot of content on the streaming service. We'll see you in chat.
