What is Twitch Prime?

Just in case you haven’t got enough subscriptions draining your wallet (I’ve lost count of mine), this week Twitch has unveiled its brand new premium service, Twitch Prime, a collaboration with the streaming sites’ parent company, international online retailer Amazon. Watch the official launch trailer below:

The service is included at no additional cost with Amazon Prime memberships and includes monthly gaming loot, like early access to new Hearthstone heroes, exclusive discounts on new games from Amazon, ad-free stream viewing, exclusive emotes and of course, a unique chat badge to show off on your favourite channels and a free subscription to a channel of your choice every 30 days.

Unfortunately, Twitch Prime is not yet available in Australia but streamers, partners and Twitch fans alike are hoping the service will make its way down under in the months to come.
