Twitch Prime is Twitch.tv's premium subscription service. Twitch Prime can either be subscribed directly from the Twitch website, or comes inclusive with Amazon Prime.

Benefits[edit | edit source]

  • Allows users to subscribe to a channel once per month, which goes towards that streamer's income from their channel.
  • Video games are available to claim on a monthly basis, which then become available for download via the Twitch client as part of the Twitch account. Despite there being both a Windows and macOS Twitch client, video games are only available on the Windows client.

Controversy[edit | edit source]

In August 2018, Twitch removed the perk of ad-free viewing for Twitch Prime subscribers, leading users across social media to complain.
