Twitch declared ad-free seeing streaming through Twitch Prime back in 2016, formerly a perk exclusive to Twitch Turbo, a $8-a-month holdover from earlier Amazon bought it.

The Twitch Prime service was launched to give streamers and viewers the "best value in gaming" according to the post. Chat badges, monthly games, and other Twitch Prime benefits will still be available.

New Twitch Prime members will see advertisements while watching content on the streaming platform if they sign up on September 14 or later. As a result of this some members might have their feathers ruffled with the upcoming change. Twitch Prime subscriptions still qualify for ad-free viewing in that circumstance. Existing annual subscribers or anyone upgrading to an annual subscription before September 14, 2018 will continue to be offered ad-free viewing until their next renewal date. Here's the reason why, "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.

From August 28th, customers will instead receive store credit when pre-ordering games through the online retailer. This credit can be used on nearly anything sold by Amazon.com. Effectively, the new pre-order benefits at both Best Buy and Amazon are less valuable and more limited than they were previously. All eligible pre-orders placed before August 28 will still recent the 20 percent discount, but after that, the new benefit will be in place. For more information, check out all the info here.
