No other Twitch Prime benefits will change as part of this shift. 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. We're talking here about getting Twitch Turbo, which is a little pricier than Twitch Prime per month, and it gives you a whole raft of additional perks that include total ad-free viewing across the site's streams.

And since then we've seen the Twitch community take advantage of Twitch Prime perks like monthly channel subscriptions to support favorite streamers, Free Games with Prime, and in-game loot for games like Fortnite, PUBG, Hearthstone, and more.

In related news, Twitch also also announced that its ad-free viewing benefit with Prime is going away for new members on September 14.

USA special counsel says Papadopoulos should spend 6 months in prison
Papadopoulos' attorneys, Thomas Breen and Robert Stanley, have until August 31 to file a sentencing recommendation of their own. To make matters worse for Papadopoulos, the prosecutors say he has not provided significant help in their investigation.

Twitch says it has offered members more than $1,000 worth of Twitch Prime loot which has led them to look at their current format due to the increasing number of offers the service is providing.

To activate your Twitch Prime account, all you need is an active Amazon Prime subscription, which most people have.

As the latter post alludes to, Twitch Prime recently began offering free games and in-game content to subscribers. This promotion has been changed a few times, such as excluding collector's editions and physical items like amiibo, but the 20% discount on pre-orders stood for awhile.

Morata: I never considered Chelsea exit
However, Chelsea want Loftus-Cheek to stay and fight for his place despite the player being upset at being dropped from the squad. Hazard came off the bench for Chelsea against Arsenal yesterday with Maurizio Sarri keen to ease him back into the fold.

So what's the new incentive that's set to replace this 20 percent discount on game pre-orders?

The arrival of advertisements to Twitch Prime, however, does not eliminate all possible options for advertisement-free Twitch viewing. The discount applies not only to pre-orders, but also recent gaming releases, which made it so console-owning Prime members could regularly save on popular, big budget games when buying them early.

Twitch Prime members, meanwhile, will still be able to receive independent games and access special emotes. If you are a Prime member, you have until August 28th to get your pre-orders in while the discount is still valid.
