Twitch Prime Subscribers Will Soon Get Ads

Just like with almost every other entertainment platform, Twitch has announced that their Prime subscription service will be removing its universal ad-free viewing status, including advertisements for all new members starting September 14.

If that wasn’t bad enough, all existing monthly subscribers will be rolled over to advertisement viewing on October 15, after which they will also have advertising included.

Twitch has stated that ad-free viewing will still be possible with their Twitch Turbo subscription; which does not come with an associated Amazon Prime account. Twitch has also stated that there will also be ad-free options for specific channels who choose to turn the option on.

Coming fresh off the back of Netflix announcing that they’re trialling ads in their streaming services, it looks like we’re going to be copping a lot more advertisements for life insurance and cars we can’t afford more often.
