Today Twitch revealed a new service bundled into Amazon Prime memberships called Twitch Prime. Just what is it Twitch Prime? Here’s the breakdown from the blog post:
Twitch Prime is a new premium experience on Twitch that is included with Amazon Prime. As a Twitch Prime member, you get free game loot every month, like instant access to the newest Hearthstone hero, Tyrande Whisperwind, or the new indie game, Streamline. You also receive discounts on new-release box games sold by Amazon during the pre-order period and for the first two weeks after launch. And on Twitch, once you link your Amazon Prime account to your Twitch account, you get an ad-free viewing experience, exclusive emotes and chat badge, and one free channel subscription every 30 days. When Twitch Prime members use their free channel subscription every month, the streamer gets paid just like any other subscription, so this introduces a new way to help support the streamers you love, even if you’ve never subscribed before. Or, you can just use it for crashing subscriber-only chat rooms. Your choice, boss! 🙂
If you already have an Amazon Prime account, all you need to do to get access to Twitch Prime is link your accounts by going here.

Huh. Well that’s interesting. Seems a little bare at this moment to justify buying an Amazon Prime membership just for it but if you’re already a member, hey, why not?
