Twitch Prime eliminates ad-free viewing for new members

If you're already an Amazon Prime member, you'll be entitled to 30 minutes early access on all lightning deals throughout the Bank Holiday sale period.
As we have continued to add value to Twitch Prime, we have also re-evaluated some of the existing TwitchPrime benefits. "This change will strengthen and expand that advertising opportunity for creators so they can get more support from their viewers doing what they love", the blog post states. Alternatively, users can pay an additional $8.99 United States dollars a month for ad-free viewing via Twitch Turbo.
Twitch has chose to terminate its offer of ad-free streams to users of Twitch Prime, the premium Twitch service offered to members of parent company Amazon's Prime service.
Twitch Prime members with monthly subscriptions will continue to get ad-free viewing until October 15.
None of the other Twitch Prime benefits - monthly channel subscriptions, monthly games, perks or chat badges - will be changing. It seems as though a lot of folks are using Twitch Prime and the losses on advertising are more than expected. That's $20 a month if viewers want everything Twitch has to offer if they're not willing to splurge on Amazon Prime ($10.99 for Prime and $8.99 for Turbo).
The remaining service, My Best Buy, offers buyers the same as new Amazon Prime terms - $10 credit as a reward when pre-ordering certain popular games.
So what's the new incentive that's set to replace this 20 percent discount on game pre-orders?
And it's not just the Prime pre-order discounts that are disappearing either. If you have an annual subscription or upgrade before September 14th. Ad-free viewing is the only perk besides the monthly free sub that I care about. The pre-order bonus only comes with "select" games and customers must wait up to 35 days to receive the credit.
Twitch was clear about the fact that any new sign-ups to the Twitch Prime wouldn't be blessed with the ability to watch streams without ads. With ads, the platform and game creators can get a cut.
For those who want to keep their ad-free experience on Twitch they can look into signing up for Twitch Turbo.
