Other Twitch Prime benefits will not be changing.
Advertising is an important source of support for 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. The ad-free experience, though, ends for all users who don't renew their annual subscription before the September 14 deadline; those who do will continue to get the perk until their renewal date. One of the perks of Twitch Prime is the ad-free viewing, with streamers will benefiting from the would-be views of those now removed ads.
Twitch Prime subscribers will have to pay extra for ad-free viewing when their current subscriptions expire.

This is expected to lead to major, life-threatening flash flooding and landslides over all Hawaiian Islands. Some are anxious the hurricane's winds could push toxic ash from the volcano back toward the Big Island.
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.

With the 20 percent discount, customers could pre-order brand new full price $59.99 releases for $47.99, a $12 difference before applicable taxes. This means you will essentially be the same as a non-Prime member and still get the usual ads when going into streams that you aren't subbed to. Viewers will be able to again remove all advertisements by signing up for Twitch Turbo, a premium membership for Twitch that costs $8.99 per month.
Capitalism strikes again as Amazon phases out its preorder discount program for Prime members and looks to replace it with a $10 credit program.
