Twitch Prime eliminates ad-free viewing for new members

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

No other Twitch Prime benefits will change as part of this shift.

As we have continued to add value to Twitch Prime, we have also re-evaluated some of the existing Twitch Prime benefits.

Advertising is an important source of support for the creators who make Twitch possible. This shift will strengthen and expand this advertising chance for creators so they can get more support in their viewers for doing exactly what they love. -Broadcasters still have the option to enable ad-free viewing for their subscribers. As described above, you'll still be able to watch your favorite creator's stream ad-free if you choose them to be the recipient of your free monthly Twitch Prime subscription.

Twitch Prime members with monthly subscriptions will continue to get ad-free viewing until October 15.

But is the star of the cult show, Lauren "LC" Conrad - aka The Girl Who Didn't Go to Paris - also going to be making a comeback? The Hills: New Beginnings will see the stars return alongside their children and friends, and is expected to premiere in 2019.

Video streaming site Twitch will no longer offer ad-free viewing for its new members, stated the company in a blog post. It will be interesting to see whether Twitch Prime users will welcome this change, or if they will be vocally against it.

To activate your Twitch Prime account, all you need is an active Amazon Prime subscription, which most people have. This deal was a subscription service that offered a 20% discount on games. If you have an annual subscription or upgrade before September 14th. Best Buy quietly phased out their GCU promotion a few months ago though, stopping new memberships and renewals but allowing current members to finish out their subscription. The pre-order bonus only comes with "select" games and customers must wait up to 35 days to receive the credit. Your exclusive badge will still remain a staple of Twitch Prime.

New Twitch Prime members will see advertisements while watching content on the streaming platform if they sign up on September 14 or later.

The popular tie-in model between Twitch and Amazon Prime will soon stop blocking ads for subscribers. That all changes starting September 14th (unless you're now on an annual subscription, in which case, this begins once your subscription renews).
