Or, A Primer on Twitch Prime
Twitchcon has just wound down in San Diego. In addition to featuring a panel by our very own Gommel Nox, the Accessible Gamer thanks to some amazing community support, a new premium service was announced for the popular streaming platform…And it is shaping up to be a massive improvement over Twitch Turbo.
The new premium service, called Twitch Prime, comes alongside an Amazon Prime subscription. On top of the bonuses offered by Amazon Prime, Twitch Prime comes with a bundle of excellent goodies for subscribers. On top of being free from ads, subscribers will get a new game aimed at streamers, monthly goodies for free-to-play games like Hearthstone, and a free subscription each month to a Twitch channel of your choice.
How to Sign Up and Subscribe
Head on over to the Twitch Prime website and sign up for the Prime free trial, or connect your Amazon account if you already have a Prime subscription. After that, all that you need to do is head to your channel of choice (such as TheMittanidotCom), press the subscribe button, and select the new subscribe option to the right.
After that, if you maintain your Prime subscription, you can keep your subscription renewing or select another every 30 days.
Before you Go
There are a few things to keep in mind while diving into Twitch Prime, however. It is not currently available in all countries, and while Twitch Turbo is not being retired, it is recommended that Turbo users set their subscription to not renew if they want to move to Prime. But, at only a few dollars per month more than a Turbo subscription and with much more to offer, Twitch Prime is definitely something that any fan of game streaming ought to check out.
