Twitch Prime Dropping Ad-Free Viewing, Game Discounts

Peterborough England. A report in the US has suggested that over half of all online purchases this Christmas will be

Cutting corners: One attractive perk to being an Amazon Prime member besides the free shipping is discounts on pre-orders for upcoming video games and some newer but already released titles.

Amazon Prime used to offer substantial discounts for members pre-ordering video games. If you went with an annual subscription, you will lose ad-free viewing when you renew.

Bad news for Twitch Prime subscribers: Your days of enjoying ad-free video streaming and game discounts are coming to an end.

Western and Southern Open: Roger Federer relieved to 'hang tough' in Cincinnati
Federer, the second seed, began his tournament with a comfortable 6-4 6-4 win over Peter Gojowczyk after a first-round bye. The former top tennis player in the world defeated Canadian player Milos Raonic 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 for a place in the semis.

Other Twitch Prime benefits like free monthly games, in-game loot and chat badges are not being taken away. And if you bought an annual subscription, you'll continue to be able to watch without ads until your next renewal date. This change will strengthen and expand that advertising opportunity for creators so they can get more support from their viewers for doing what they love. "As a result, universal ad-free viewing will no longer be part of Twitch Prime for new members, starting on September 14". Twitch has also stated that there will also be ad-free options for specific channels who choose to turn the option on.

To activate your Twitch Prime account, all you need is an active Amazon Prime subscription, which most people have. Instead, they can get a $10 store credit, but only if they pre-order from a select list of games - and they'll have to wait up to 35 days to get their discount code.

To no one's surprise, some users are upset and pointing out that the ad-free viewing experience has been a central benefit to the whole program.

And everyone, find yourself someone who looks at you like A-Rod looks at his bae. Past recipients of the Vanguard Award include Madonna and Beyoncé .

Amazon raised the price of Prime earlier this year in the USA, so it's now time for the other shoe to drop.

As Twitch announced on its blog, Twitch Prime members with monthly subscriptions will get ad-free viewing until October 15th. It does not offer the other Twitch Prime extras, however, including a free monthly channel subscription and free games and in-game content, which Twitch said will not be affected by the change.

Thanks to every Twitch Prime member for supporting Twitch and your favorite streamers.
